Party in the Park needs lead­ers

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The an­nual Starfish So­cial Ser­vices’ youth event, Party in the Park, was un­for­tu­nately post­poned.

Youth lead­er­ship mem­ber Jack­son McNaughton said un­cer­tain weather and a short­age of youth lead­ers were the main rea­sons for the post­pone­ment.

The event, which was to have been held on Fri­day, was about de­vel­op­ing youth lead­ers and was a great learn­ing op­por­tu­nity and there was def­i­nitely room for more peo­ple to get in­volved, he said.

Those al­ready in­volved say they want to be able to put on a suc­cess­ful event for young peo­ple in their com­mu­nity.

‘‘We’re look­ing for young peo­ple aged 12 to 24 to be in­volved, ei­ther with decision mak­ing or just on the day,’’ Jack­son said.

The group will be meet­ing on Jan­uary 7 to un­der­take more plan­ning for Party in the Park.

Party in the Park is spon­sored by the Min­istry of Youth De­vel­op­ment, Mata­mataPi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil, Starfish So­cial Ser­vices, Mata­mata Ro­tary and Mata­mata Lions.
