Claysburg Little Miss Pageant Cancelled
June 11, 2020
Under an abundance of caution because of COVID-19 Pandemic, Diana G. Walter-Dively and her planning board have decided to cancel the 2020 Little Miss Claysburg Pageant in conjunction with Claysburg Area Community Days originally scheduled to take place in August.
“After giving it much thought and careful consideration, it was an a unanimous decision that it is in the best interest of everyone concerned that we cancel the pageant for this year,” Walter-Dively, the pageant director and hostess, said.
Walter-Dively said the board will grant an extra year of eligibility in 2021 to those girls who have participated all the other years of the pageant who would otherwise be ineligible.
“This gives those girls one more year to compete as I feel it is the only fair thing to do considering it was not their fault that this pandemic happened to those girls,” Walter-Dively said.
