On Saturday (Feb. 15) Truro Raceway held its Annual Truro Harness Horse Owners Association (THHOA) Award Banquet at the Best Western Glengarry in Truro, NS.

Guest speaker at the event was Marc Campbell, the top driver in the history of Prince Edward Island harness racing. Marc did a great job providing a few stories and answering questions from the guests.

The THHOA President Arleen Gillis presented Lee Johnson a special thank you for the continued support that Wilsons’ Home Heating provides to Truro Raceway.
