Harvest Youth Board grants Smith River Sports Complex $2,500

“The sports complex is in the midst of adding more leisure activities for the public’s benefit,” said Cameron Brummitt, vice chairman of the Harvest Youth Board. “As a board, we felt compelled to be a part of their initiative.”

Harvest Youth Board Member Karli Foster said as a board, “We realize the impact the sports complex has on our youth. We saw this opportunity as an enhancement to not only the playground, but to the community as a whole.”

Once the age appeal has been broadened, the playground will attract more children and young families, increase usage, and further promote outdoor activity and community wellness, according to the project application.

Billy Russo, director of operations at the sports complex, said the SRSC sets itself apart because of the diverse amenities offered at the facility.

“Our state-of-the-art playground has always been a huge part of that,” Russo said. “Now, with the addition of the new equipment, that area is further enhanced and visitors will have one more amenity to enjoy.”
