Email News Alerts

When plans were first announced for a $2.5 million Backyard addition to the Detroit Lakes Community & Cultural Center back in May, fund-raising organizers hoped to break ground on the project this fall.


To make that happen, however, they will need to raise approximately $198,000 by Sept. 30, according to Steve Daggett, co-chair of the fund-raising committee.
