 group efforts that enrich the lives of people in the areas we serve," said
 Thos. E. Capps, Dominion chairman, president and CEO.  "Dominion is proud of
 its employees and their volunteer efforts."
     Nearly all volunteer hours are contributed on the employee's own time,
 although company equipment and monetary donations may be used to support
 worthy projects such as Habitat for Humanity, Christmas in April, education
 partnerships, school refurbishing efforts and mentoring programs.
     Last year, in a precedent setting, company-wide volunteer effort, more
 than 400 employees participated in Volunteers: Putting Our Energy to Work for
 the Environment.  Dominion employees in North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania,
 Virginia and West Virginia cleaned parks, cleared walking trails and built a
 canoe storage facility and a park observation deck -- all in a single eight-
 hour workday.  The event, which will be repeated this year, received second
 place in the Southern Gas Association Community Service Award competition.
      Dominion is one of the nation's largest producers of energy, with a
 production capability of 2.7 trillion British Thermal Units of energy per day.
 The company has a power-generation portfolio of more than 21,000 megawatts,
 which is expected to grow to approximately 28,000 megawatts by 2005.  Dominion
 is one of the largest independent oil and natural gas exploration and
 production companies in North America, with 2.8 trillion cubic feet of
 equivalent reserves.  Dominion also serves nearly 4 million retail natural gas
 and electric customers.  For more information about Dominion, visit the
