Organizers of the Penticton Royalty program have been forced to make a last minute change in the location for a planned information session.

The meeting, which was originally planned for the Penticton Chamber of Commerce offices in the Trade and Convention Centre, has been shifted to the Penticton Lakeside Resort, but will still take start at 7 p.m. on Jan. 10.

For more almost 65 years, the Penticton Royalty program has been giving young women the chance to serve as an ambassador to the city. Now preparations are starting for the 2012 competition and students in Grades 11 and 12 that are interested in becoming part of the program and vie for the title of the 65th Miss Penticton, Queen Valvadette or Miss Penticton Princess are encouraged to attend the information session. Parents and caregivers may also attend the meeting.

Reigning Penticton royalty and committee members will be on hand to provide an overview of the program and to answer any questions.
