The city of Princeton, Ind., will have a public event Thursday to celebrate being named as one of Indiana's Stellar Communities.

Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman will visit Princeton for a 1p.m. news conference, to be followed at 2:30p.m. by a public reception.  Activities will take place in Downtown Princeton, in a tent set up on Courthouse Square in the 100 block of West State Street.

Other Participants include Princeton Mayor Bob Hurst; Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana President Norm Bafunno; Onsite Occupational Health and Safety Chief Executive Officer Kyle Johnson; and state and local leaders.

The Stellar Communities program, now in its second year, provides small- to medium-sized communities with a chance to apply for millions of dollars in grant money to fund public improvement projects.

Princeton and Delphi were named last week as Stellar Community winners for 2012.  Over the next three years, the state will invest more than $20 million in these cities.
