The program cancellation was necessitated by a new fa- cility access fee policy initi- ated by the Plumas Unified School District.

"We regret that we are no longer able to serve' our youth through this program, but, unfortunately, the new fees proved to be too costly for us to continue," said recreation and park district general manager .Jim Boland.
