Memorial Wall Ceremony in Mills Park
Tuesday, October 21, 2014
The Foundation for the Betterment of Carson City Parks and Recreation (FBCCPR) will
present Special Recognition Awards for year 2014 recipients in a brief ceremony on
Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, at 4:30 p.m. at the monument at the entrance to the Marv
Teixeira Pavilion (formerly Pony Express Pavilion) in Mills Park. The public is
invited to attend this free, outdoor event.
The awards will be presented in the following categories:
- Volunteer of the Years - Rex Jennings has volunteered his time performing a
variety of tasks and functions at Lone Mountain Cemetery for the last 12 years.
Among other duties, he has provided minor maintenance, assisted customers with
questions, helped in locating gravesites, and put out and raised the flags on holidays.
- Volunteer of the Year - Donna N. Inversin oversees the Easy Walk and Easy Bike
program along with being a trail advocate. She dedicates her time to discovering
new trails and possible walking and biking paths to take all who are interested.
- Organization of the Year - The Carson City Redevelopment Authority Citizens
Committee (RACC) uses allocated redevelopment funds to better serve citizens.
Among recent projects funded are the LED signage in front of the Community Center,
needed improvements to the Carson City Fairgrounds (Fuji Park) that enabled the
hosting of the NV150 Fair, and funding for signage outside the fairgrounds.
- Business of the Year - Sign Pro, owned by Steve Reynolds, gave the Parks and
Recreation Department many hours of volunteer assistance and guidance with the new
digital sign project at the Community Center, including advice on developing technical
specifications, evaluating proposals, and assisting in the Special Use Permit process.
This year the Foundation will present a one-time "Special Recognition Award" to former
Mayor Marv Teixeira and his two sons, Allen and Matt, for their involvement and promotion
of youth sports in Carson City. The awards will be presented posthumously to Marv and Allen.
Each recipient's name will be placed on the monument in Mills Park. The selection
of award recipients is a cooperative effort among the Carson City Parks & Recreation
Department, the Foundation for the Betterment of Carson City Parks and Recreation, and
the Carson City Historical Society. In addition, the names of Eugene Paslov and
Jacki T. Montgomery will be added to the Wall of Memory. For more information, e-mail David

"Third Thursday" Lecture Series in 2014
The "Third Thursday" lecture series, featuring talks about Nevada history on the third
Thursday of the month, will resume in 2014. A number of lecturers
have been contacted and scheduling each of them to fit our schedule and ensure we
have a presentation space is in progress. Traditionally we held our lectures at the
auditorium of the Carson City Library, but that space is being repurposed by the Library.
However, the Library has been able to let us use The BRIC (Business Resource
Innovation Center) at 108 E. Proctor St. (just north of City Hall) for several lectures.
