Have you ever wondered: Who takes care of the park at the end of your street? Who do you call when there is a pothole in front of your house? Or who can answer questions about social issues or volunteerism? If you are like most of the residents in Celebration, you have certainly been befuddled at some point by the numerous associations, companies, and government entities that make up our “Alphabet Soup” governance. In this course, representatives from the various organizations will lead you through the maze of acronyms and entities that affect how our town functions on a daily basis.
