2013 Littles launch announced

GREENSBURG – On Thursday morning, Peggy Brown, coordinator of Greensburg’s Little Mr. & Miss Tree City Pageant, visited local radio station WTRE to promote the upcoming formal kickoff of the 2013 pageant.

That kickoff, according to Brown, will be staged at 6 p.m., Aug. 6, at the Greensburg-Decatur County Public Library. The Aug. 6 meeting will last about an hour and include an orientation for any Decatur County kids and their parents interested in competing in the 33rd annual edition of the pageant.

Formal registration, Brown added, will be held one week later, Aug. 13, again at 6 p.m., at the library.

Brown will nonetheless accept registrations beginning at the Aug. 6 kickoff, meaning registration will, in effect, run Aug. 6 to Aug. 13.

After Aug. 13, however, registration will be strictly cut off. “I’m very strict about registration cutoff,” Brown said. “It’s not fair to the other kids who come to all the meetings to let someone sign up late who hasn’t been attending.”

Following orientation and registration, meetings and practices for the Littles competition will run every Tuesday in August and September, at 6 p.m., at the Library, through Sept. 24. The lone exception will be Sept. 3, when practice will be cancelled in observance of Labor Day.

Reigning Little Mr. Tree City Caleb Greiwe sat in with Brown at Thursday’s WTRE interview, as did his mother T.J., herself a former Little Miss Tree City in 1985 (2012 Little Miss Tree City, Gwyneth Blair, was unable to attend).

When practices commence, Brown’s first order of business is teaching the kids to introduce themselves onstage. That may not sound like much, she said, but for kids in this age group, it can be a really big deal.

WTRE Host Kathy Verseman asked Greiwe to demonstrate his skill at introducing himself, and he did so, sounding as comfortable as he did on the Littles stage back in September.
