The Haliburton Junction Skate Park committee is looking for youth in the community to join the team.

Members say it would be nice to hear from a younger perspective to help propel the project off the ground.

The Municipality of Dysart et al decided to start fundraising for an improved skate park, and needs to raise $100,000 towards the project.

So far, nearly $18,000 has been raised.

They will have an event to raise more funds on September 10th, at the skate park.

Anyone interested in joining the committee can email committee member Andrea Mueller at amueller@dysartetal.ca.
