Merged Operations of CCHS and FBCCPR End
New Foundation Emerges

For the last several years, the Carson City Historical Society and the Foundation for the Betterment of Carson City Parks & Recreation (FBCCPR) have jointly operated. FBCCPR has been dissolved, and thus the CCHS is operating on its own.

A new organization, the Foundation for Carson City Parks and Recreation (FCCPR) has been created as a 501(c)(3) organization. The purpose of the group is to assist the Parks & Recreation Department and other groups wishing to enhance the use of the city's parks system. The group operates as an umbrella organization, assisting groups that have not attained 501(c)(3) status to raise funds to raise funds for parks improvements. FCCPR will also pick up functions maintained by FBCCPR, such as organizing the annual awards ceremony held each fall in Mills Park and maintaining the Wungnema House, but it operates under a new set of bylaws, officers, and board.
