THE WONDER

OF

FLORIDA



Responding to the call of the Gaines-
ville Chamber of Commerce an army of
citizens reported at the appointed hour,
8 o'clock in the morning, Dec. 2, 1920.
Some took up the work of ground clean-
ing, others wielded whitewash brushes,
others joined the building gang. the sewer
diggers, and the gang that laid out the
streets. By nightfall what was a mass
of underbrush was transformed into a
charming four-acre park, with streets
laid out, sewerage installed, electric
lights in place, and everything spick and
span for the motorists. In the center of
the park the volunteer workers had
erected a spacious assembly hall for the
convenience of visitors.
The site chosen for the camp affords
ample shade and beautiful locations for
the. erection of tents and the storage of
cars. The building is fitted with every
convenience. Electric lights, lavatories,
and an abundance of the famous Boul-
ware Springs water has been piped di-
rectly to the camp and made available
to northern visitors. \wlio will have the
oDportunity to spend as many hours and
days as they like amidst the balsamic
pines and enjoy the hospitality of
Gainesville.
The volunteers who put the Gainesville
project over represented every profession
and men from every walk in life. Bank-
.rs, ministers, brick masons, clekrks,
plumbers and business nmn rubbed
shoulders, raked, dug and hammered un-
til the task was accomplished. All lines
of life melted into one, andl all the work-
ers toiled joyously through the day. The
Boy Scout troops of the city were in evi-
lence everywhere working with a will
and caught a lesson in community spirit
tlat they will carry with them into after
life.
