Thank you for supporting blood drive
Thank you again, Spirit Lake, for coming out and giving the blood of life on May 15, for the American Red Cross. We had a fairly good turn out but missed our goal by 3 pints.
We had only two deferrals, 6-for-12 double red cells making a total of 44 units and our goal was 47 so only missed it by a few. We had 40 presenting donors.
We also gave a 9 gallon pin to Linda Rubis Ė congratulations!
A big thank you to all that donated and mark your calendar for Aug. 17. Letís make our goal this time!
A big thank you to all the volunteers for their help in the canteen: Becky Berg, Karol Larsen, Lois Hansch, and Judy Hagadorn and to Wal-Mart for providing such wonderful cookies.
Your generosity is most appreciated by those needing transfusions in trauma situations and for on-going treatment of chronic life-threatening illnesses.
Julie Lande, and Karen Dokken
