The Highlands Ranch Park & Recreation Foundation voted in new leadership during its April meeting. New officers include president Renee Anderson, vice president Sharyn Landis and secretary-treasurer Bob Epstein.
The foundation works in partnership with the Highlands Ranch Metro District to support local parks, recreation and open space projects and programs.
Anderson and Landis, both longtime residents of the community, became trustees in 2013. Anderson said she enjoys working toward making good things better and that serving on the board provides opportunities to do just that. Landis said she wants to carry on the great works her predecessors have attained in helping to fund important community park and recreation programs.
Epstein, one of the original foundation trustees, formerly served as president and vice president of the foundation. He said he believes in the mission and accomplishments of the foundation and thinks there is more to be accomplished for the benefit of all community residents.
Other foundation trustees include Roy Mapp, Lucy Dietrich and Gary Herbella. The foundation board continues to seek additional community-minded individuals interested in volunteering on its board. The foundation is looking for board members with time and energy for active participation who will help build a high-performing board and are willing to actively help raise money for the organization. Candidates should be able to devote eight to 10 hours per month to the foundation.
Individuals interested in serving on the foundation’s board should contact Carrie Ward at or 720-240-5950.
