December 2014

After again running another successful awards banquet in late November the Monticello-Goshen Chapter of U.S. Harness Writers again donated $3000 to Historic Track at their monthly Board Meeting on December 10.

The presentation of the check was made to Steve Jones, President of Historic Track’s Board of Directors by John Manzi, the chapter’s banquet chairman who is also a longtime Historic Track Board member.

“The check looks like is has seen better days,” Jones said to which Manzi replied, “Still, it’s worth $3000 and you can take that to the bank!”
