Volunteer Highlight: Greig Pearce

“Sure, I’ll do it!” is a common phrase uttered by WDM volunteers. On this occasion, it was Greig Pearce who agreed to take on the role of Santa Claus for a WDM Yorkton public event. A long-time volunteer, Greig was willing to step in where needed. A school program that Greig happily helps with is Celebrate Christmas Past where he has filled the role of Santa’s helper and assisted with tractor and wagon rides. Greig told us that he has had children and parents come up to him in stores and elsewhere to thank him for the wonderful Museum experience. Greig loves making children smile so helping with the Celebrate Christmas Past program is the perfect fit. Greig started volunteering with the Yorkton Threshermen’s Club when he was 14 or 15 years old.

At the time, the Museum was still located at the Yorkton airport. He volunteered with his family who operated the flour mill at the Threshermen’s Show and Seniors’ Festival. He has volunteered on the flour mill ever since – learning from his parents how to use the mill and then teaching his own children and grandchildren to operate it. For Greig and wife Maureen, “It’s a family thing. We have a good time. That’s what it’s for, to have fun!”

Thanks to Greig and the whole Pearce family for their years of commitment to the WDM.
