Town council says thanks for the Funground

We would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all of the volunteers that participated in the Frisco Funground Rebuild. The efforts were a huge success. The playground will be enjoyed by community members and visitors alike including the 210 students at Frisco Elementary School. We have received countless positive comments from the community about the amazing job these volunteers did. These caring and committed members of our community showed the world that Summit County knows how to come together for the benefit of our children. We realize the huge commitment of time and energy that it took to serve in leadership capacities for the Funground Rebuild. We would like to thank Frisco Funground coordinators Sam Meister, Anna Sones, Bill and Laurie Schwanitz, Jed Stone, Sylvia Brooksbank, Todd Sandoval, Mike Bohlander, Karin Carestia, Joyce Subberwahl, Jennifer Payne, Susan Robertson, Joy McBrearty and Jo-Anne Tyson. We would also like to thank captains Keith McBrearty, Roger Peart, Steve Stell, Kevin DiValentino, Jacquelyn Smith America, Tim Nixon and Mark Sabatini. All of their efforts couldn’t have occurred without site preparation by Kerry Barth, Wally Baker, and Bruce Heath; as well as the wonderful design by Dave Lanello, Architect of Leathers and Associates. We recognize the busy schedules of all the volunteers and appreciate the time that they gave to make this event a success. More than 650 volunteers came together over 90 hours to build our fantastic playground. An event of this magnitude simply could not have been pulled off without leaders such as these who were willing and able to take charge. We could not have done it without the help of all of the volunteers. Their donation of time and energy was vital to the success of this event. Community events like this would not be possible without these volunteers. Our deepest gratitude to each and every one of them for helping to make Frisco a great place to live.
