President's Letter

Dear Community Partners, Members, Donors and Friends,

2017 has been an exciting year for your Friends TEAM! As president of Friends of Staunton State Park, it is with pleasure I announce our 5-year anniversary. Our small, but mighty TEAM was established in 2012 and has supported Staunton State Park with distinction for 5 successful years. It is our goal to continue to live up to our Mission Statement ‘working in partnership with others to preserve, promote and protect the wildlife, natural beauty and historic legacy of Staunton State Park for present and future generations for many years to come.

With the continued support and contributions from our community partners, members, donors and friends, we look forward to our next 5 years. Supporting what I consider to be the jewel of the Colorado State Parks, it is certainly our pleasure to be a part of the exciting growth of Staunton, the newest Colorado State Park. Please see our list of accomplishments on our website.

2017 has been an historic year for CPW. This year Staunton State Park introduced our new Track-Chair Program, funded 100% by Friends of Staunton State Park. Staunton is the 1st and only Colorado State Park to offer an accessibility program for our visitors with disabilities, and we believe we are the 1st and only state park in the country to do so. This year, we changed the lives and put smiles on the faces of over 150 visitors with disabilities,who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to enjoy the beauty Staunton has to offer. Special thanks to our dedicated Staunton volunteers and staff who made this program a success. Thank you to all who have donated to this vitally important program. Through continued donations, our hope is to expand the program in the future.

I want to thank my fellow board members for their dedication, hard work and efforts that have made Friends of Staunton State Park the success we have become. It is my continued pleasure to be a part of our Friends TEAM. I would especially like to thank Susan Festag, one of our founding board members for her continued dedication. Susan IS Friends of Staunton! Kudos to Steve Sparer and Sharon Trilk for their continued dedication and efforts. This year I am proud to announce the add of two new board members. Steve Brooks our Treasurer and Jeanie Boymel who joins us with extensive grant writing experience.

With my sincerest appreciation,

Wayne T Parkinson
President, Friends of Staunton State Park
