Princeton Exhibition Association elects executive for 2013

The PXA is in recess for December, but will be back in full swing as of January.

Back row: Vice president Danny Kastor

President Paul Bedard called the Annual General Meeting of the Princeton Exhibition Society (PXA) to order at 7 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 20 in the conference room at the Princeton Library.

Bedard noted that for the few people that had taken responsibility throughout the past year, “they had done a pretty darned good job.”

The PXA are proud of the accomplishments over the past year including; upgrades of fencing, washrooms, wheelchair access, building cosmetics and the renovation of the concession. Currently they are working on acquiring estimates to have the concession stands evaluated.

The user groups all reported having had successful events and special mention was made on the phenomenal turn out for Halloween Family Fun Night this year.

Bedard extended his appreciation to the members saying, “Thank you for what you’ve all contributed.”

On a sadder note, Bedard read aloud a letter of resignation from long-standing member Carol Ruoss, whom regrettably due to health reasons resigned from the PXA.

Ruoss’s contributions and many years of service to the PXA are greatly appreciated. “She will be missed,” said Bedard.

Councillor Doug Pateman was then introduced to officiate the elections.

Councillor Pateman began by thanking the PXA board for, “allowing me to help out this year.” “If there is anything you require from Council and Mayor, just ask,” he said.

By acclamation, Councillor Pateman introduced Paul Bedard as president and Danny Kastor as vice president of the Princeton and District Exhibition Association. Dawn Johnson was appointed secretary and Fran Murphy appointed as treasurer. The directors remain as in 2011; Ken Crompton, Karrie Crucil, Fran Murphy, Dawn Johnson, Lisa Carleton and Della Osborne.
