PIONEERS AND NATIONAL PARKS SYSTEM DEVELOP PROJECT TO ASSIST THE DISABLED

 PIONEERS AND NATIONAL PARKS SYSTEM DEVELOP PROJECT
 TO ASSIST THE DISABLED
 The Telephone Pioneers of America and the National Parks System have been jointly working on a project called "Easy Access" which will assist disabled people everywhere.
 The project culminates this Saturday, Jan. 18 at Eco Pond in the Everglades National Park when over 40 volunteers will finish building an access ramp for disabled people.
 Over 42 million people in the United States are disabled and have trouble enjoying the National Parks because their abilities are limited. The objective of this project is to encourage physically challenged individuals to explore and enjoy areas they might otherwise feel are beyond their reach.
 The Telephone Pioneer volunteers purchased all the materials and will be working side-by-side with volunteers from Homestead Air Force Base to complete the ramp on Saturday. The work is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and run until 5 p.m.
