On behalf of the American Red Cross Bloodmobile, we wish to thank all of the blood donors who took the time on a beautiful day to donate to the blood drive on May 20-21. Giving blood takes such little time and a gift is given -- another hug, another laugh and another life. We have four individuals who have given gallons of blood: Anita Early -- one gallon, Curtis Mohrman -- two gallons, Linda Rubis -- eight gallons, and Beverly Rush -- 12 gallons. What a deal!

We would also thank Grace Lutheran Church who so graciously hosted out blood drive in Spirit Lake. Kiwanis provided many helping hands to set up and tear down. Delicious cookies were provided by Hy-Vee.

Last but not least, a big Thank You goes out to our volunteers who assisted at the front desk, reception, and canteen. We couldn't be this successful if it wasn't for our volunteers.

Our next blood drive will be on Aug. 21-22, so mark your calendar and we hope to see you there.

Lois Eckard and Kathy Hesseltine, Milford
