Pageant director thanks all who have helped her To the editor: It is not every day you come across that special someone or something that truly touches your heart and changes you.  I am pleased to say I met such people while planning and implementing my second annual sendoff dinner for four remarkable young women. These young ladies are preparing to compete for the title of Miss Maryland and Miss Maryland's Outstanding Teen in just a couple of weeks. I will inevitably forget someone, so I will begin by saying thank you to everyone who helped make this year's sendoff a success.
