Jack Urfer showed off his playful side when he volunteered to be “branded” with a branding iron at the Urfer Family Park ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication Saturday, Nov. 14. John McCarthy, Sarasota County Parks and Recreation director, volunteered to wield the branding iron.
In the photo, Urfer, middle, cuts the ribbon of bandanas before a crowd that included his wife, Thelma, and County Commissioners Nora Patterson, Shannon Staub and Carolyn Mason and County Commission Vice Chairman Joe Barbetta.
