Thanking blood donors

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

On behalf of the American Red Cross, we wish to thank all the blood donors who so generously donated at our blood drive in March. Some individuals deserve special honors, i.e. Eugene Fales earned his 15 gallon pin, Jon Davis earned his first gallon pin and JoLynn Harms earned her 11 gallon pin at the January drive. Congratulations to each of you! We are very happy to say welcome to our first donors ... Ryan Petrevich, Mike Niemeier and and Jayme Harrington.

We would like to give a special thank you to Grace Lutheran Church for once again hosting our blood drive in Spirit Lake and also to the Milford Community Center for their continual hosting of the Milford blood drives. Thank you to the Spirit Lake Kiwanis for their many helping hands with unloading and packing back up the Red Cross truck. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who gave their time and talents to make this blood drive successful.

Kathy Hesseltine, Julia Davis and Cindy Kettmer
