Anniversary committee selects event name

Farragut’s 30th anniversary committee met Wednesday, Nov. 18, to discuss plans for anniversary year 2010’s 30 corresponding “fun-tivities.”

Leisure Services Director Sue Stuhl said the list of 30 events was mostly compiled, although there could be some changes and some events wouldn’t be certain until next year.

“We’ll keep adapting this and bringing you up to date,” she said.

Each month, the Town will advertise that month’s events with small descriptions, dates and times in farragutpress and other area media outlets, as well as online and on the Town’s cable channel.

The committee voted to call the 30-event campaign “Farragut Celebrates 30 Years: 30 Fun-Filled Activities.”

One of the first activities is a storytelling event featuring seven of the Town’s forefathers, scheduled for Jan. 16.

Committee member Betty Dick will be a speaker at the event coined “The Founding of Farragut: The Forefathers Speak Out.”

Committee member Carolyn Coker joked it also should say “foremothers” to include Dick.

The committee also nailed down specifics about the Town’s annual Independence Day Parade, which will be held Saturday, July 3, in 2010.

The Town is planning an open house and special exhibit at Farragut Folklife Museum from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. after the parade. The exhibit will feature memorabilia from the Town’s 1980 incorporation.

Related to that event, Farragut Business Alliance is planning an event either on July 2, or a sidewalk sale after the parade, Stuhl said.

“Hopefully, that can all blend,” she added.

Finally the committee decided to postpone serious plans for the fall picnic on property adjacent to farragutpress offices until January.

“This is our big new thing,” Pat Sloan said of the picnic.

The picnic will occur Oct. 10, 2010, which the committee pointed out was 10-10-10, adding to 30. At previous meetings, the group discussed theming the picnic around the past three decades.

The picnic will include games and activities, music and food. Details are still in the works.

“Everybody loves that kind of stuff: the simple life,” Coker said.
