A new event called Try-it-Fair will showcase skills and development for employment, literacy and fulfillment in Haliburton County.

The Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce and the Haliburton County Public Library has partnered with a number of local businesses and organizations to put this project together.

They say at this time the event planning is in the early stages as they wait for an approval for a grant.

They ask anyone who is interested in the planning phase to call the chamber.
