Council hosts Let’s Talk 2012

On Tuesday, Nov.13 Town Council hosted a dinner for volunteer organizations.

Mayor Frank Armitage

On Tuesday, Nov.13 Town Council hosted a dinner for volunteer organizations within the community as a way of extending their appreciation and providing assistance and organizing skills to the organizations.

After a welcome and commendations from Mayor Frank Armitage, Nadine McEwen, Recreation and Culture Coordinator for the Town of Princeton provided a wealth of information.

She gave an outline of advertising tools: Leisure Guide, Electronic Board, Town website, Visitor’s Guide and the Similkameen Valley Planning Society Tourism Advisory Council. She explained how Public Works events support could be properly acquired and how organizations could help and support each other (shared advertising, linking to each others websites and participating in each others events.), and how and when to apply for the Town of Princeton Grant in Aid  program.  This was then followed by event date planning.

Outside of providing organizations with the skills and opportunities, it is hoped that the overlapping of major event dates will not happen.
