Frisco is making history

Frisco residents are invited to become part of the town’s history on Saturday by posing in a community photo.

The snapshot will be a replicate of a 1983 town portrait, the year the Frisco museum and historic park was opened.

“Being that it’s the 30th anniversary, we thought it would be a fun community event,” said Frisco museum director Simone Belz.

The community photo will take place next to the Schoolhouse Museum at 9 a.m. Saturday, just before the town cleanup event.

“Since town cleanup is such a community-oriented event, we are asking people to come in the morning and smile pretty, then grab their trash bags and head out into town,” Frisco marketing and communications director Suzanne Lifgren said.

Frisco officials plan on unveiling a ‘now and then’ poster featuring the 1983 and 2013 community photos during the Museum’s Pistols and Pearls event on May 31 and displaying it for the remainder of the year.

“If we can look back on our history it gives us an appreciation for the community we live in,” Lifgren said.

It can also be fun to see how things have changed, she said.

““The fashion is fabulous,” Lifgren said of the 1983 town photo.

“I have to admit we have some people who work here who were in that photo,” Lifgren said. “We had a blast trying to pick them out.”

Town officials said the community photo will serve as a time capsule of sorts.

“Maybe 30 years from now, community members will want to continue to recreate the photo,” Belz said. “It’s like a snapshot in time.”
