  Premier John Savage had strong words of praise today for the
  employees of the provincial government. They have just
  wrapped up their 1995 United Way fundraising campaign. They
  raised $250,000, an amount significantly better than the
  campaign target of $230,000.
  "Nova Scotia's provincial employees have shown that despite
  difficult times and reductions in staffing levels, their
  commitment to community agencies remains strong," said
  Premier Savage. "I for one am very proud of what has been
  accomplished through their generosity and their dedication
  to helping out their fellow Nova Scotians."
  The province's 1995 United Way campaign was headed up by
  Housing and Consumer Affairs Deputy Minister Gordon Earle
  and his department colleagues. Earlier today an awards
  ceremony was held to acknowledge those who helped bring the
  campaign to its successful conclusion.
