A Message from Foundation Pres. David Johnson
Mon., July 27, 2020
As much as we'd like to reopen the Wungnema House for our regular users and their meetings
in August, the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus makes it unwise to do so.
The house simply cannot safely accommodate meetings of more than 4 or 5 persons, if that
many, until there is a significant change in the virus's virulence and/or the widespread
availability of a vaccine.
If there is any change, we will let everyone know. If anyone has something at the house
that they would like to retrieve, they must first contact me.
At last check, all was well at the house other than, in their loneliness, dust bunnies
seem to be breeding like rabbits....
Please stay well, and when out and about, stay masked for others' health and well-being.
David S. Johnson, President

FCCPR Welcome to our site. The Foundation is an umbrella organization created
for charitable and educational purposes related to Carson City Parks and Recreation. We
assist the Carson City (Nevada) Parks & Recreation Dept. with projects for improvements
to the City's parks. Currently we are providing financial guidance and assistance to several
non-501(c)(3) organizations that are raising funds to make improvements:
- Disc Golf Group - This group raised funds to create three 9-hole disc golf
(frisbee golf) courses in the Flint St. area.
- Headstone Project - This group is raising funds to erect headstones on graves in
Lone Mountain Cemetery over graves that are missing headstones.
- Tennis Club Project - This group is raising funds to maintain tennis facilities
in Carson City Parks, particularly Centennial Park.
- Dog Park Support (no webpage yet).
- Junior Ranger Program (no webpage yet).
We are looking for other projects where we can be of assistance. If interested, contact
David Bugli (Dcbugli@aol.com).
