Dysart et al is looking to create recreational programming for children in grades one to three.

Parks and Recreation Program Coordinator Andrea Mueller says the after-school program would run from 3:15 p.m. until 5:15 p.m. at Stuart Baker Elementary.

Mueller adds the municipality is applying for a $15,000 grant from the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund.

She adds based on a survey, there is a demand for any programming that promotes physical activity in the community for elementary school children.

If Dysart gets the grant, Mueller says a spring and summer tennis program for youth would be implemented at Head Lake Park.

She mentions that dates for any programming will be finalized if the grant is approved.
