Come Out & Play At Katie's Playground

Jun 11, 2013

TRUCKEE, Calif. (June 11, 2013) – The Truckee Tahoe Airport District Board of Directors and Staff invite you to join us for the Dedication and Ribbon Cutting of Katie’s Playground, commemorating the memory of Katie, Hannah and Wyatt Morrison.

Katie Morrison served as an Airport District Board Member and Airport Community Advisory Team member, contributing significantly to these efforts as well as many other initiatives in our community. Katie, Hannah and Wyatt passed away as the result of an aircraft accident in March of 2011. Her contribution to the Airport District as a Board member and Community Advisory Team member are acknowledged and appreciated. Her support and desire to construct a playground on the airport providing a place for children to play and families to gather are well documented.

The $50,000 playground was built thanks to a partnership between the Truckee Tahoe Airport District and friends of the Morrison family. While only open for a very short time, the playground has become a popular play area for children and families in our community. It has quickly become a place where children playing and the excitement of aviation can mix perfectly.

All are invited to attend the dedication. Time and date are as follows: Date: June 27, 2013 Time: 2:00 PM Place: Playground Area adjacent to Truckee Tahoe Airport Administration Building, 10356 Truckee Airport Road, Truckee CA.
