2013 Littles launch announced

(Continued)

Greensburg First Lady Sharon Herbert was also on hand Thursday morning, helping Brown spread the word about the 2013 Oldyweds Game.

2013 will mark the event’s third year at the Tree City Fall Festival. Brown also organizes and coordinates Oldyweds, which is structured after TV’s long-running “The Newlywed’s Game.” Brown’s twist on the format, however, is that participants in Oldyweds must have been married “a longtime.”

Herbert and her husband, Mayor Gary Herbert, have been married 44 years. Sharon Herbert formally announced Thursday morning that she and the mayor would again be participating in Oldyweds, marking their third straight year. The mayor, she said, wasn’t aware they’d be participating again, but likely would be after the WTRE interview.

Brown is currently soliciting entrants for the game, which will be held Friday night of the 2013 Tree City Fall Festival, Sept 27. She needs two more couples (the Little Mr. & Miss Tree City Pageant will be held Sept. 28).

There are no entry fees involved, she said, and no practices, as she wants everything to be as organic and spontaneous as possible.

Sharon Herbert characterized the event as “a lot of fun,” though at times unexpected and unpredictable. She invited married couples to sign up.

The age range for the Littles contest is between 4 and 7. Brown specified that contestants may enter provided they are at least 4 years old, but “not yet 8 by Jan. 1, 2014.”

For more information on the 2013 Little Mr. & Miss Tree City Contest or to enter the Oldywed Game or nominate someone, call Peggy Brown at 812-593-5583.
