Duties of an Azalea Trail Maid
At the beginning of each year, a new Azalea Trail Maids Court is announced.
Azalea Trail Maids serve a year-long term and appear at various events throughout the city, as well as
throughout the nation. Each Court consists of 50 Trail Maids who are then divided into ten groups of
five, called an appearance group. Parades are the only events in which the entire Court will appear at
once. Additionally, each Azalea Trail Maid purchases her own dress and accessories. All Maids assist the
Board of Directors in fundraising efforts to cover transportation costs for appearances nationwide.
