Guam - Giving the gift of time. From raising funds for much needed equipment to managing and running the hospital's gift shop, the Guam Memorial Hospital Volunteers Association held their annual membership tea drive earlier this week.

For the last 45 years, the ladies famous for their pretty pink vests, have given millions of hours in service on top of over $4-million dollars worth of invaluable equipment for the hospital. With 150 members to date, First Lady Christine Calvo comments on the successful membership drive, saying, "It looks like some of our volunteers brought about twenty new faces that we'd like to put pink vests on!"

For more information on how to join the volunteer group, contact June Perez at 647-2213.
