Mayor Frank Armitage welcomed and thanked attendees of the Let’s Talk Princeton dinner on Tuesday, Feb. 19. “Thank you for coming,” said Mayor Armitage, “We wouldn’t have all these wonderful events if we didn’t have all of you.”

The dinner is an annual event hosted by Mayor and Council as a token of appreciation for the community volunteers. It is also an opportunity for local organizations to meet, discuss and date their events in the hopes that there will be no overlapping of events in the community.

The evening consisted of a review of Town Advertising Tools; the Leisure Guide, Electronic Board and the Town Website, princeton.ca., and a reminder to use the Similkameen Valley Tourism Website, www.similkameenvalley.com.

An invitation was extended to attend a free work shop on grant writing in Cawston on Dec. 2. -RSVP by Nov. 29 to 250-493-9311, and special guest Sarah Trudeau of the South Okanagan-Similkameen Community Foundation gave a presentation on Grants In Aid opportunities.

A delicious roast beef dinner with trimmings made by the Brown Bridge Pub was served to the volunteers, by Mayor Frank Armitage, Councillor Kim Maynard and Councillor Doug Pateman.
