OurView — Town recognizes volunteers


Hats off to the Farragut Unsung Navy.

On Friday, March 12, at Fox Den Country Club, the town of Farragut paid homage to the backbone of the Farragut community – its volunteers, or FUN Volunteer Program members.


According to Sue Stuhl, leisure services director for the town, “133 FUN Volunteers donated 6,572 hours. The value to the town is approximately $65,720. This value is calculated on the scale recommended from the Points of Life Foundation in Washington, DC. Approximately 53,671 volunteer hours have been donated to the town of Farragut since the program began in 1992 with a value to the town estimated at approximately $536,710.

“Volunteers work in a variety of areas and programs such as museum docents, gift shop hosts, engineering assistants, special events and VITA tax assistants.”

Topping the list of volunteers, if that can be done, are Frances Abel, Bill Dunlap, Charlie Owens and Doris Owens with more than 3,000 hours.

That’s a lot of hours for anyone. It’s like working a full-time job and a half.

Wow!
