Thank you for supporting blood drive

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

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
