Park pavilion dedicated in Dick Frantz's memory

June 16, 2005

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Family members of J. Richard "Dick" Frantz, who died in September 2003, helped Washington Township officials dedicate the newest pavilion at the Pine Hill Regional Recreational Area on Wednesday in Frantz's memory.

Frantz's widow, Jenny Frantz, her two daughters and grandson were on hand for the brief ceremony. The event was hosted by Supervisors Chairman Arthur Cordell.

Cordell said the development of the 174-acre park off Mentzer Gap Road, was a longtime dream of Frantz.

He often came up to Pine Hill to watch the progress as the park was being built. It is still under construction.

"From Pine Hill's conception, Dick thought the extensive plan was one of the best thing to happen in the township," Jenny Frantz said in a statement she wrote and read at the ceremony. "To have the foresight for this scenic piece of mountain land and bring it to its fruition was a wonderful dream come true."

The Frantz family donated money in Frantz's memory toward the $15,000 cost of the pavilion. Grants and other donations made up the rest.
