Organizers of a memorial for the victims of the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 say they're still short of their fund-raising goal to complete the project.
Robert Easton is the memorials committee chairman. He says the $1.5 million memorial is lacking $200,000.
The project is supposed to be finished in 2007. But Easton says that might not happen if they don't have all the money.
In June, former President Bill Clinton came to Colorado for the groundbreaking of the memorial. He had said he would donate 50-thousand dollars to match a grant pledged by a local golf club.
The memorial is currently under construction on the southeastern edge of Clement Park at the base of Rebel Hill near the high school.
