Hometown Hernando for Feb. 2

By Jean Hamilton, Times Staff Writer
Springstead's ROTC program provides Christmas: Once again, members of Springstead High School's Air Force Junior ROTC program participated in the Christmas Angel Tree program during the holidays. The annual program ensures that local children in need have a good Christmas by collecting donated gifts. Again this year, unit members collected donations and then used the money to purchase gifts for children the unit adopted. The program emphasizes community service, leadership and becoming a better citizen. In other news, the unit, along with Lt. Col. Darryl Sweetwine and Chief Master Sgt. Tyrone Williams, recently visited Patrick Air Force Base in Brevard County where the cadets saw demonstrations, received briefings and toured the base.
