Language advice (pretty noobie I know :)
I was wondering if the following sentence would be correct in English. In a nutshell i want to write down a range from a to d and e to f.
( i kind of literally translated it to English
Thanks in advance!
P.s. google translate suggests I should remove the second "from" that correct?

* Capitalize "since"
* "bc" should be capitalized too
* "We served" suggests they have stopped while "we have served" suggests they are still serving
* "From..." should not be its own sentence. A comma is typical but a semicolon is more appropriate. A colon would be better if that leading "from" was not there (ie, there was a list).
* No apostrophe for "gorilla's" because it is not possessive (just like the others)
* Style: there are other, possibly more popular, options than the "from A to B and from X to Y" structure:
(the "and" is optional, has more effect without)
With a long list another form entirely might sound better.
