Introduction to Farragut is a unique way to connect participants with the Town, providing information on its history, government structure and operations, public safety, education, and volunteer opportunities. The program kicked off with a reception at the Farragut Town Hall on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. Classes were held at Town Hall on the following dates: Wednesday, August 30; Wednesday, September 13; Wednesday, September 27; Tuesday, October 17; and Wednesday, November 1 starting at 6 p.m. and lasted approximately 2 hours each night. Class participants also donated more than 45 hours of their time at STAR (Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding) for the class volunteer project and had the opportunity to go on a Tour of the Town with Town Administrator David Smoak. The program wrapped up with a graduation dinner on November 8, 2017.
