Princeton Racing Days Association of 2013 Bill Vowles

The annual general meeting of the Princeton Racing Days Association was held at the library conference room on Thursday, Nov. 15.

President Karrie Crucil welcomed all in attendance and then asked for a moment of silence to be held in remembrance of Roberta Baron, a long time member of the association who passed away in August of this year.

Crucil thanked the board for their efforts in 2012 saying, “We had great race days this year, my family and I had a lot of fun.” “We are looking forward to next year,” she added.

Crucil then tabled all ongoing business and asked Councillor Doug Pateman to officiate the annual general meeting and election of officers.

President, vice-president, and treasurer positions were filled by acclamation. President for 2013 is Karrie Crucil, vice president Yvonne Liddicoat and treasurer is Bill Vowles. The position of secretary was chosen via ballot vote and was filled by Mariah Liddicoat.

Association directors for 2013 are; Jennifer Bernard, Della Osbourne, Dino Crucil and Sue Gereau.

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.”

The Racing Days Association will recess for the month of December barring making application for their dates in 2013 and then will return to business as usual with their first meeting on January 17, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., in the Princeton Linrary conference room.
