By Steve Reed
Princeton’s eighth annual Community Day is Saturday, June 2, and organizers said it is shaping up to be the best one yet. Attendance has ranged from 4,000 to 6,000 people over the past three years.
The 2018 theme is “A Monstrously Good Time.” Casey Funeral Home is this year’s Title Sponsor.
A monster truck named Hillbilly Mayhem with seats installed in the bed will be giving rides at $10 per person.
Community Day is at Princeton Elementary Sc-hool, 850 Holts Pond Road, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Pastor Jimmy Bryant has put together another great stage line up,” said Town Administrator Marla Ashworth. “Police Chief Tyrone Sutton is working on exhibits.”
Bryant is The Bridge Church’s outreach pastor.
Sutton will emcee opening ceremonies at 9 a.m. Christian worship with the Thurman and Larkeysha Sheppard Family follows at 9:30 a.m.
At 10 a.m., performers from Princeton’s Tippy Toes Dance Studio, under the direction of Leslie Ingram, will perform.
The Blue Notes Jazz Ensemble will perform big band and jazz music and follow Tippy Toes at 11 a.m.
At noon, the Louis Waymore Country Band, the 2016 Carolina Music Awards Country Band of the Year, will take the stage.
This one woman, three-man group includes two Princeton High School alums Adam Barbour, Class of 1993, and Phil Wise, Class of 1994. They are joined by Phil’s wife Erin and Ken Dawson.
