Staff reports
Plenty of historical photos and information, such as the former EATEL logo above, can be found at the company’s anniversary Web site, www.eatel.com/75 years. EATEL is looking for stories and memories from over the years.

EATEL is celebrating 75 years of service in the Ascension Parish area.

The Gonzales-based company marked the milestone by recognizing the community and its employees through an anniversary Web site, www.eatel.com/75years.

The site spotlights some of the people that make the area a great place to live and work, a spokesperson said. The site includes EATEL and community milestones, vintage photos and profiles.

“It wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without friends and family,” said Brad Supple, EATEL’s marketing and sales director. “We want to hear from members of our community. If you know someone special who defines that unique local personality, visit our anniversary Web site and nominate that person and they could possibly be included on the Web site.”

Area residents are asked to e-mail eatel75@eatel.com if they have an interesting story and photo about the local area that they would like to see on the list of community milestones.

EATEL is also looking for dynamic personalities to share their personal stories and memories of the community in a television commercial. E-mail their name and contact information to Meghann Hebert at mhebert@eatel.com.
