On June 7th, at the Town of Princeton Town Board meeting, Mayor Don Rains accepted a donation of $68,000 toward the construction of a new community building in Downtown Princeton on behalf of the Town Board.

Alan Burnette, Director of Resource Development for Lehigh Hanson, Inc., owner of the Princeton Quarry, made the presentation.

Mr. Burnette stated that it was his honor to come before the board and that his company “absolutely loves being in Princeton.”

“I am proud of our folks in that when it came to the naming rights, we wanted to secure the naming rights not for Hansen, they wanted it to be for the Town of Princeton,” Mr. Burnette said.

The $68,000 donation cements a naming rights agreement between Lehigh Hansen and the Town of Princeton that established the name of the future community building as the “Princeton Community Center” for a period of twenty years.

Mayor Rains expressed heartfelt thanks to Mr. Burnette and Lehigh Hansen on behalf of the Town Board and the citizens of Princeton.
