Something that Barry Falke said was very important to a CBO is the mission statement. Barry was saying that for a CBO to function well, everyone must know why they are there. A mission statement keeps everyone on the same page as to what the organizations purpose is, and why that purpose is important. I thought Storyland/Playlands’ mission statement was very well suited to what they were doing. Their mission is to provide affordable, safe entertainment to local families. The two parks are well maintained and have plenty of entertainment for visitors. I still remember going to Playland when I was younger. The parks are truly a treasure to Fresno, and are something that can be appreciated by the whole community.
