Letters to the Editor
Last week disaster was averted after a water main broke in the National Ability Center’s administrative building. While the problem is one that could have severely damaged portions for the building, the Park City Fire Department was quick in its response and helped avoid any major damage.
We are thankful to the fire department for its help in our non-fire emergency. Their response and help upon arrival was beyond the typical call of duty. As we prepare for our Discovery Camps and Camp Giddy Up to open in the coming weeks, we are trying to get our facility in the best possible condition to host the hundreds of children who will be visiting in the next few months. We feel lucky to have such a skilled local emergency response team in times like these. With its help, the problem was quickly identified and fixed.
Thank you to the Park City Fire Department for rescuing us. Your help will allow us to continue to Provide Opportunities to Discover Abilities and be on schedule for our summer programs.

Dogs made a splash at Prospector pools
Summit County Friends of Animals would like to thank Stanton Jones, Christian Clegg and the entire staff at Silver Mountain Sports Club for hosting last weekend’s Dog Daze of Summer. On Saturday, May 17, dogs were allowed to swim in the club’s two outdoor pools at the gym’s Prospector location. The admittance fee was reduced for those who brought an item to donate to Friends of Animals. All of these items will be used to help care for the animals awaiting a home at Furburbia.
The event was a spectacular success. Well over 100 dogs and their people joined in the fun and it was the perfect way to splash into summer!
Friends of Animals has several more dog-friendly events coming up: Hike Your Hound on June 7th and Bark in the Park on July 19th. Please visit our Web site: http://www.friendsofanimals.net for more information.

These people saved our spring sports
Having our first "regular" winter in many years threw spring sports for quite a loop. Without the efforts of many dedicated Park City athletes and their parents, we’d probably still be playing the April schedule.
Park City Recreation extends a HUGE thanks to all the volunteers from the local soccer and lacrosse clubs, both players and parents, who diligently cleared snow from the sportexe field at the Park City Sports Complex at Quinn’s Junction to allow play to begin. It was difficult, wet and cold work, but our hardy Parkites prevailed! They even got the sheriff’s department to bring out a work crew to help. Thanks also to our dedicated Parks crews for helping with the snow, clearing parking lots when that was a viable practice option and making the fields playable when they were clear. Let the SUMMER games begin!
Our sincere thanks,
Park City Recreation
