Friends of Waller Park Established


There are many ways in which the community can help preserve this precious piece of our heritage and that is why the “Friends of Waller Park” was created in June, 1982.

The first Beard of Directors included:

Ray Bailey
Helen Brooks
Bill Deboer
Garnell Dove

Gene Peterson
Maria Phelps
Joe Quealy
Walt Stanley

C. Kent Stephens
Bill Tomasini
Tim Tomastik

They held their first public meeting on June 3, 1982.  In order to launch the group’s membership drive they organized a Day in the Park on November 20, 1982, to provide the community a day of free family entertainment.
