A youth hub will be in Haliburton across the street from the A.J. Larue Arena. The Point in Time Centre for Children, Youth and Parents purchased the old lighthouse church building on Dysart Avenue across the street from the A.J Larue Arena. The purchase will be funded by a provincial grant. Point in Time Executive Director Marg Cox says once the organization learned it would receive funding, many youths came forward and said the old church is in an ideal location.

Cox adds Point in Time is working with Haliburton Highlands Health Services and other service providers in the county to create the youth hub. Cox adds that their input will be critical to how the hub is developed.

Cox adds the deal to buy the lighthouse closes on July 31st.
