What an amazing event.  I loved every part of it and had so much fun.  My team did very well.  There was 66 teams from allover the Grey Bruce area, including teams from many schools, local fire fighters, ambulance, doctors, OPP, and many more.  A “Tough Mudder” is a very difficult obstacles course with one obstacle being a out of mud you have to crawl through.  Each tem paid $60 to enter and all of the proceeds go to the Cancer Society.  It was a beautiful day and a wonderful time for all participants.  WAY to go Peninsula Shores District School.13339586_10157249217305556_9016576103161667937_n13394011_10157249217300556_144905011522936051_n13413638_10157249217490556_2910558265655374545_n

I almost forgot, on the long holiday weekend I held a garage sale and raised over $200 for Free the Children.  It was a lot of fun and my mother, great aunt and great grandfather helped me out.  It was so successful that I will hold another later on this summer.

page_IMPACT_Youth_SummitOn May 28th, I went to Hanover Ontario to attend the Impact Youth Summit event at the Hanover P&H centre.  When we arrived and registered we received a goodie bag, T-Shirt, and a pine sapling!.  There were around 200 other delegates, all teenagers.  We have a great time learning about how to present ourselves, speaking to people, how to set achievable goals, and more.  We watched a magician and enjoyed musical entertainment at lunch.  All in all it was a wonderful day and I feel energized and more confident.

For one of my fundraising events, I chose to hold a garage sale with all of the proceeds going to “Feed the Children”.  I cleaned out my house of unused things.  I have also had wonderful support from my grandparents, great aunt and great grandfather, as well as my former principal who donated items for me to sell.  It will take place on May 21st on Claude Street in Wiarton. At the home of my Great Grandfather ( who is 100 years old by the way).  Hope the rain holds off.

I have been so busy with school and sports that I have finally found some time to let you all know about a wonderful weekend I had  in April.   On April 15 and 16th I accompanied a bus load of kids from my area to the Tim Hortons Camp (Onondaga Farms) in St. George.  The group was supported by the Ontario Provincial Police, South Bruce Peninsula Detachment and joined up with kids supported by other OPP detachments in western region.

Lucky kids were chosen to go to this camp and create new and wonderful experiences.  We developed our leadership skills through low ropes courses, team building activities and games, camp fires, nature crafts, and much more.  We all made new friends and ate delicious food.  It was an honor for me to represent Missteenage Canada as well and my local area at such fabulous place.

Hello there,  Greta Gilbert here and I just have to tell you about a way cool fund raising event I had the privilege of helping with.  The event was the 4th annual art auction to raise money for the Amabel-Sauble Child Care Center.  The cool part is that the kids in the day care, make most of the art, (some is donated by local artists). The parents of the kids bid to by the pieces. there was some very lively bidding.  considering the kids are between 18 months and 4 years old, the pieces sold for amazing amounts, some got over $100.  I was able to show the pieces around while they were being sold.  It was so much fun.  It was a great evening.

I am so very happy to finally be able to start blogging.

My name is Greta and I live and go to school in Bruce and Grey Counties. (that is 2.5 hours northwest of Toronto on the Beautiful Bruce Peninsula.  Many of you may have visited Sauble Beach or Tobermory, 2 of my favourite places near to me.

I have had the honour of attending many events as Miss Teenage Bruce/Grey County.  These have included; The Wiarton Willie Festival, Syrup Festival, and a Tim Hortons Kids Camp.  I feel blessed to be able to give my time to help promote such wonderful community events.IMG_3704

My Platform for the pageant is to give underprivileged girls experiences that will help them to understand their themselves better and improve their self confidence.  I hope to be able to be a role model and give these girls a chance to see all that they are capable of for their future.

Hey everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your week as much as I am! Yesterday we had the pleasure to go to Toronto Eaton Center for lunch. When we got there we were greeted by the shoppers. They looked very surprised to see all the pretty girls with the crowns. We had great photo opportunities with the public and the staff of the Richtree Taco Bus. Who knew that right in the middle of the Eaton Center there was an authentic blue and white Volkswagon bus that served what could possibly be the best tacos and burritos that I have ever tasted!! I got two of the fish tacos with lettuce, chipotle, cheese, and beer battered fish. With the old styled bottle of Sprite on the side, this lunch definitely hit the spot!! Some of the lovely ladies that I was sitting with and who I am competing with would surely agree. I saw some girls who had ordered a beef burrito with black bean puree. If you live in, around, or far from the Greater Toronto Area I would recommend this hot spot to eat for you! A big thanks goes out to them for their sponsorship for #MTC2015

XOXO,

Sarah

Hey everyone, just thought I would give a quick update now that I am somewhat settled into my hotel room. My roommate is 15 year old Madison from Saskatchewan is super friendly!! We are talking about lots and comparing rules and laws from our home provinces. It is very interesting to see the differences between the two! Right now we have some down-time to relax before heading to the opening party, registration, and dinner. Just wanted to check in and say hi! I’m so excited to go to registration and get my gift bags and chat with all the other girls again and get my Ontario sash. I have been informed that interviews, video shoot, and photo shoot are tomorrow. Still don’t know when we will be on Breakfast Television but I promise I will let you know as soon as I do!! <3

XOXO,

Sarah
