The Pioneers, a group of employees and retirees from AT&T, presented Bruce McGraw with the Heritage Veterans Memorial committee a check for $500. The money collected was from dues and contributions. This is the second year they were able to make the contribution and hope to continue in the future. The monument is located at the First Church of the Nazarene on MLK in Orange.

Anyone else wanting to donate or participate can call 409-883-4674.
