--------------------
(LINCOLN/CHEYENNE, WYO.)-First Lady of Nebraska Sally Ganem and Nebraska’s First Puppy Snickers hosted trick-or-treating called “Snicker Treating” on Halloween night at the Governor’s residence.
 
The First Lady had a limited number of first-come-first-serve Halloween treat bags, which included pencils, crayons and snacks for kids, and Snickers had dog treats for fellow animals in costume. Snickers was 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 principal, 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.
 
Wyoming Governor Matt Mead and First Lady Carol Mead also invited trick-or-treaters and their families to come by the Governor's residence in Cheyenne on Halloween night.
