Employees - Part I
Part  I   II   III   IV V

The heart and soul of a successful enterprise is made up of the employees. Judging from the wonderful stories on our Stories Yahoo Group, Frontier Village was extra special because of the quality employees that worked there. Many ex-employees have shared fond memories of their days of the park in our Stories group, now it's time to honor them with a spot on our website. If you worked the park and would like your picture here, send it on in. Either e-mail them in jpeg format to Mat Lindstedt, the RFV webmaster, or write me to make other arrangements. I'm at mat@lindstedt.com.

Indian Jim's daughters, Anita and Elena, also known as the Hathway girls.
They weren't employees, but they helped their dad at the Trading Post. These dresses were handmade by their father.

Stephanie Blease- Friedbauer worked in several food sites at FV including Hot Dog On A Stick, Ice Cream Gazebo and Watermelon Pit. She now lives in the southwest with her husband Mike and their two boys.

Here we see Jan Lee back in 1969, standing by her 1956 VW convertible. Janet still brags about her letter of recommendation stating that she worked at FV from September 1969 to July 1969. Why do we think, Allen might have something to do with this.

The morning maintenance crew of 1966-67 consisting of Gary Ross, Allen Weitzel, Dave Kline, Woody McLeroy, Bob Daly and Bob Trifilo.

Pat Hanna and Bruce McLemore circa 1968/69.
