John Manzi retirement celebrates greatness & good will
Wednesday, March 11, 2015
by Chris Tully for the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame

Without a doubt, when harness aficionados think of the hardest working, most dedicated and creative publicity hound in the business, without a doubt they think of John Manzi.

Known for his affable demeanor, wacky promotions, and as Master of Ceremonies of some of the Catskill regions most memorable awards banquets, JM in the PM has never disappointed.

This list of individuals that Manzi and his Monticello-Goshen Chapter of USHWA have honored over the last several decades reads like a "who's who" of harness racing.

Whether he was racing camels versus elephants, or crowning the King of the Matzos, Monticello Raceways man of the hour has always been John Manzi.

But alas, all good things must come to an end. And after 40 years of bright lights and big laughs, Hall of Famer Manzi is going to take a well-deserved curtain call.

Friends of John Manzi would like to invite you to a fun-filled retirement party for the beloved harness racing writer and publicist on Sunday, May 31, 2015 at the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame in Goshen, NY.

Tickets are just $75 each and will include a catered buffet, refreshments and a very special keepsake to commemorate the event.
Plan on joining your friends at 4pm that afternoon in the William Haughton Hall for a great time with lots of belly laughs, a slide show of memorable Manzi moments, and much, much more.
This is sure to be one of the most fun-filled, talked-about events of the summer...interested parties are urged to get your tickets early to avoid missing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Sponsorships are available in a variety of denominations, and will go a long way to ensuring that this is a very special affair.
To purchase tickets or provide a sponsorship, please call Janet Terhune at 740-815-4343 or Email: janet.terhune@gmail.com.
