FANS (Families and Neighbors Support) Island Rec Board presented Island Rec Director Sally Thomsen and Island Rec Board Commissioner Jacquelyn Reiff with a check for $6,300 to fund Island Rec's Free Movies in the Park Series.
In its first full year of operation FANS contributed a total of $8,200 to Island Rec. The additional funds included sponsorship of Island Rec’s popular Music on the Lawn, free summer concert series and subsidy for 40 island children to take swimming lessons.
The Incredibles the second movie in the Movies in the Park series was the ideal opportunity to recognize the FANS board as "they are truly super heroes to Island Rec and this community for funding Movies in the Park," said Thomsen. "Although I was unable to make capes for all FAN Club members they too are Super Heroes!"
Movies in the Park run through September on Saturday evenings at dusk. For more information about FANS and Movies in the Park visit www.islandrec.org , www.islandrecfans.org or call Island Rec at 378-4953.
