2005 James Dean Festival
in Fairmount, Indiana
September 24 Lookalike Contest,
Winner for 2005, fitness trainer Jimmy White of Kokomo, Indiana with former winner Larry Ledgerwood California.
Texas Bob Hinkle, Grand Marshall of the parade on Saturday, was one of the five judges in this contest. Here he presents the winners plaque to Jimmy White.
Larry Ledgerwood and David Wozniak (Sterling Heights, Michigan.) Both are former winners.
Former winner Brian Burke had the best costume. From a few feet away, Brian was identical to the James Dean U.S. postage stamp. A clever first for this contest. The colors all matched on stage.
Tension was building: Brim, Ledgerwood, Wozniak and White in the semifinals. All are former winners.
#12 is Scott Brim, California.
David Wozniak and his darling bride.

Maxine Rowland of Ohio showed up at the Lookalike contest where I took this photo from afar. I had not seen her before on particular Saturday. Maxine has been the heart and soul and spine and shoulders of the James Dean Remembered Fan Club on-site in Fairmount through the good years and the lean years. Maxine is our Icon.
In Indiana high schools, they used to have a luncheon where girls would invite their "Ideal Lady." Maxine Rowland is certainly an Ideal Lady and a role model for all.
Start the Ideal Lady Luncheon or Tea in your school or faith group or scout group. You get to tell everyone why you chose her. It makes for a wonderful couple of hours.
