New board in place for 2013, with three executive positions acclaimed

Summer is now here but planning is well underway for the 2013 Vernon Winter Carnival.

The society held its annual general meeting Tuesday and chairperson Dave Fletcher, vice-chairperson Calvin Hoy and treasurer James Schneider were re-elected to their positions.

Elected to two-year terms as directors were  Diana Williamson, Erin Doucette, Karla Ziegler, Kevin Rothwell, Ron Morgan, Caroline Radics and Mark Meaney.

“Carnival is in a healthy fiscal circumstance and we are ready for 10 days of the fun in February,” said Fletcher.

“The new Family Day holiday declared for Feb. 11 will make the final week-end of Carnival even more fun as many people will have a long weekend to enjoy all of the events.”

Prehistoric Carnival, Carnival Before Time runs from Feb. 1 to 10.
