The AT&T Gainesville Telecom Pioneers, Florida Telephone Retirees, and the Gainesville Sunshine Clowns joined together to deliver 175 ditty bags along with 80 hug-a-bears to the V.A. hospital in Gainesville on Feb. 14, Valentine's Day. The ditty bag contained personal items such as socks, handkerchiefs, tooth paste, tooth brush, writing paper, envelopes, stamps, playing cards, puzzles and other items. This project sponsored by the Telecom Pioneers of Gainesville, Jacksonville, Ocala and Leesburg is celebrating the group's 20 years plus of service to the veterans in Gainesville and Lake City. AT&T Pioneers plan other projects for our veterans during the summer and invite all telephone employees to support our veterans. For more information call Jim Gorgans at 528-6167.
