First Lady of Nebraska Sally Ganem and Nebraska’s First Puppy Snickers hosted trick-or-treating called “Snicker Treating” for Halloween at the Governor’s Residence.
The First Lady handed out Halloween treat bags which included, pencils, crayons and snacks for the children, and Snickers had dog treats for fellow animals in costumes.
Snickers even joined in on the holiday fun, dressed as 'Tigger' from A. A. Milne's children’s book The House at Pooh Corner. Tigger is a fictional tiger character known for his energy and enthusiasm.
The children’s literature reference is appropriate for the interests of the First Lady in promoting literacy.
As a retired 30-year school teacher and principle, the First Lady is a strong advocate on behalf of childhood literacy, working with Reading Is Fundamental, the nation’s oldest and largest children’s literacy organization, and regularly reading with school children throughout Nebraska.
