‘Little Mister’ recalls years of fun

Dear Editor:

My name is Caleb Greiwe. I was the 2012 Little Mister Tree City. I wanted you and the town of Greensburg to know how much I enjoyed my year of reign.

I had the best time helping and working in the community. Altogether, I attended 18 public events from Sept. 2012 to Sept. 2013. This included events such as the Greensburg Fire Department Chili Supper, the Gilliland-Howe Safety Fair, the YMCA Halloween carnival, the Highpoint Orchard Apple Festival, collecting Christmas gifts for the Cheer Fund, bell ringing for the Salvation Army, grand openings, the Little 500, Delta Dash, community festivals, and of course, the beloved county parades.

I must admit that the parades were my absolute favorite part of being Little Mister Tree City. Sometimes, after the parades, I was able to still get some candy from other participants in the parade! It was fun riding in all of the cool convertible cars and jeeps too. Just before the 2013 opening ceremonies, I was able to ride in a big limo. It was a diesel (my favorite)!

I want to thank my sponsor for the contest, B & B Tooling, owned by my Uncle Lee Bohman. Without his entry fee, I would not have been able to be in the contest. I made so many new friends in the contest and throughout Greensburg, and I cannot wait to see what comes next for me. In the meantime, I am enjoying my fall break from first grade.

Lastly, I want to thank Peggy Brown, the pageant coordinator. She has become one of my favorite people and I am really going to miss seeing her as often, but I cannot wait to help her with the contest again next year. My Mom said that all of this will be so much more special to me when I am older and I am sure she is right, but for me, this has been one of the best things to happen in all six years of my life so far!
