The Mr. Lake County Pageant is a fundraiser for LCTC’s building fund. This is Lake County’s only nonprofit community theater group and has been entertaining audiences for 30 years, all without a permanent place to call home. The funds raised from the Mr. Lake County Pageant will go directly into the Joshua Phillips-Blair Memorial Theatre Fund, the future dream home of LCTC.
On June 22, 2019, John Arslanian became Mr. Lake County 2019-2021. John is the Chef and owner of Fresh and Bangin’ and the new C& E Corner Creamery. John is also the new culinary teacher at Clear Lake High School. John moved to Lake County five years ago from Los Angeles County. He said that his dream job would be owning a bed and breakfast in South Africa with his husband and his dog. John’s favorite food is escargot and foie gras. John enjoys playing darts and collecting antiques like blue glass. The craziest thing that he has done has been cage diving with great white sharks and petting a live cheetah in South Africa. John would like to use his time as Mr. Lake County to spread awareness about child hunger and foster youth here in Lake County. John will serve as Mr. Lake County until 2021.
