Champion of the Boneyard Dog Park

Frances Boardman didn’t choose to come to Colorado. A long-time Californian, she intended to stay there until a series of falls as she neared age 80 prompted her daughter to insist she move closer to her family. Frances not only made the best of the situation, but also enriched the Erie community more than most.

Within a few years she’s many friends, taken an active role in her church, utilized her teaching degree while volunteering at her grandsons’ school, shared her home with people in need, and graced the neighborhood with fresh vegetables from her garden. Everyone who visits the Boneyard Dog Park early in the morning has been greeted by her gorgeous smile and positive attitude. She knows most people and dogs by name. She takes pride in the park earning a reputation as a friendly, welcoming place and is on a mission to keep it clean by picking up the waste that some negligent owners ignore. Thank you for your kindness, Frances, and for making Erie a great place to live.
