A Message from Foundation Pres. David Johnson
Mon., July 27, 2020

Photo of Wungnema House in snow

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

Notice posted 7/30/2020: The Foundation for Carson City Parks and Recreation plans to hold an awards ceremony at the memorial wall in Mills Park, near the entrance of the Marv Texeira Pavilion on Friday, Sept. 18, 2020. The event had been tentatively scheduled for July 15, but had to be rescheduled due to complications from the coronavirus epidemic. The Board of the Foundation will be presenting several awards, including the unveiling of Sandy Osheroff's name being added as Volunteer of the Years. Prior to Sandy's death on Jan. 20, 2020, Sandy was selected for this honor. Sandy served as Treasurer of the the Foundation from its inception until her death. She also served in similar capacity for a number of other organization in the Carson City Area.

Others individuals may also be remembered or recognized on the Memorial Wall. If you make a donation of $100 or more to FCCPR we will add the name of your "loved one" to a special section of the Memorial Wall. You will be asked to provide a small biography along with the donation. For further information, contact David Bugli at dcbugli@aol.com or at 775-883-4154.

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).

This website is in development. The links should be working in a few days. We are also setting up a Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/CCParksFoundation.
