As you are aware, in January of this year the Friends of Payson Parks & Recreation (FPPR) initiated a drive to raise funds to help pay part-time salaries for the folks necessary to run the town’s recreation programs. The FPPR is extremely pleased to report that we have been able to cover the part-time costs through June, which essentially covers all of the summer recreation programs with the exception of staff for the swimming pool that was paid for by the town.
