Foundation Cancels Wungnema Open House for
Sunday, June 18, 2017
The Foundation for Carson City Parks & Recreation (FCCPR) is cancelling an Open House
at the Wungnema House that was originally scheduled for Fathers Day, June 18, 2017.
However, FCCPR will be holding two Open Houses at the Wungnema House in July. The
first will be on Sunday, July 2, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. A special Open House will be on
Wednesday, July 12, immediately following the FCCPR Community Service Awards ceremony at
5:30 p.m. at the Wall of Honor located at the entrance to the Marv Teixeira Pavilion at Mills Park.
The Wungnema House, a stone building built in 1948, is accessible by the Mills Park
entrance on Saliman Road, opposite the high school. Admission to Open Houses is free.
These events are opportunities to learn about this historic building, Native American history,
and the Foundation.
The Foundation provides an umbrella under which various organizations and citizens
can come together to explore innovative ways to promote and facilitate activities that
benefit the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces. It assists organizations
with similar goals to promote and meet Foundation's fiduciary objectives to help manage
and protect funds raised by members for their projects. Currently the Foundation is providing
assistance to projects for the restoration of missing headstones in Lone Mountain Cemetery,
improvements at the gun range at Flint Dr., development of a disc golf course on Flint Dr.,
and maintenance and improvements to tennis courts in city parks.
