Call Before You Dig in CT mourns the passing of Robert Donnelly, one of the original CBYD Board members. Bob worked as a Director for seventeen years, from CBYD’s inception in 1978 until 1995, representing Bridgeport Hydraulic Company, now Aquarion. He served CBYD in many capacities, including a 10 year stint as Vice President. We extend condolences to Bob’s wife, MaryLou, and his family.
The Call Before You Dig team were proud to support Connecticut FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) by providing safety glasses and sponsorship at this year’s Connecticut Robotics Competitions. IT was great to be part of such a fantastic event and spread the message of safe digging!
