1966 - Grace Pregitzer Named Michigan Mother of the Year and Onaway Citywide Clean Up
From Presque Isle County Advance and Onaway Outlook
April 21, 2016

CAPTION: Grace Pregitzer was accorded the honor of Michigan Mother of the Year. The mother of nine children was in contention for national honors in New York and Washington, D.C. Pregitzer was paid high tributes by state dignitaries when she won out over 15 other candidates. For two nerve-twisting weeks her supporters and relatives kept the secret that she was nominated. In other Onaway News, Onaway citywide clean up was planned for May 2, 3 and 4. Trash and rubbish was going to be hauled with no charge, provided it was placed at the curb or alley in containers and was easily accessible.
