The Harry Smart Memorial Youth Basketball Scholarship
The late Harry Smart loved the game of basketball and Harry enthusiastically supported Dundee Township Park District’s efforts to provide a program for youngsters. Harry’s family established a scholarship in his name; the funds of which are used to assist youths who might not be able to afford to participate in our basketball league. Should you wish to enroll your son or daughter in youth basketball and utilize scholarship funds, please include a letter along with your registration form letting the Park District know of your need.
