Thank you to those who donated blood at the Red Cross blood drive Monday, Sept. 30. -Forty-seven units were collected to help boost the blood supply and ensure that hospital patients have the lifesaving blood they need. It was nice to see so many familiar faces and great to have one first-time giver.
This was a community effort. Thank you to those who advertised the drive: EV-W Voice, –Tri-County News, churches, city marquee, local businesses, and the radio stations. Thanks to
St. Anthony Church for the use of the Social Hall, and to the Lions and Social Concerns for donating food for the canteen. The work of the volunteers who readied and set back the Social Hall furniture, and those who worked at the registration desk and canteen, was greatly appreciated. You all made a difference in saving lives.
The next blood drive in -Watkins will be Tuesday, Dec. 10, from
