A special General Meeting will be held Tuesday, June 25 at 7 p.m., at the Riverside Centre for those interested in helping.

Volunteers are coming forward to help rebuild the organization so the community can have a team competing in the upcoming season.

Volunteers are coming forward to help rebuild the organization so the community can have a team competing in the upcoming season.

A renewed interest in our Princeton Posse Junior B Hockey team has seen several new and returning volunteers come forth so that our community can have a team competing in the 2013/14 KIJHL season.

Coaches are being interviewed and the KIJHL is supportive of a reinvigorated volunteer base. Lyle Thomas, Assistant Coach Dave Clare and former Director, Larry Legault have formed an Interim Advisory Committee to deal with immediate business aspects and they will disband at the next general meeting.

The Posse players have always been very active in the community, whether helping with the school reading programs, volunteering at various charity events or helping younger players learn to skate and enjoy hockey. We look forward to this year’s team continuing to do this.

As has been mentioned in various news articles, volunteers are the backbone of our community and thanks must go to all former Boards of Directors and executives through the years for all the time and energy they have contributed to the operation of the Princeton Posse Hockey Club. This includes those many people behind the scenes and without them all, there would be no Posse.

Please join the many interested and supportive people for a Special General Meeting to be held Tuesday, June 25 at 7 p.m., at Riverside Centre. Whether you just want to learn what is happening or are willing to put your name forward as a volunteer for a committee or director/executive position, all are welcome. Nominations will be taken from the floor.

While there is the realization that hard work is ahead, it is exciting to have citizens come forth with constructive help and suggestions.

Keep an eye out for info posters in the community and on Social Media. You may also call 250-295-7343
