Mayor Frank Armitage attended the annual general meeting and offered his congratulations to the board from last year and for the upcoming year. “Congratulations, I wish you every success,” he said to the new executive. “If there is anything I and council can do, don’t hesitate to call.”
Local owner, June Dunte attended the meeting to extend her thanks and appreciation to the board of 2012. Dunte’s horses won two major races on home soil this year. “On behalf of myself and my trainer, I want to thank Princeton Racing Days for the improvements to the track this year,” she said. “Our horses are very important to us and we are very happy with the work.”
