On Saturday, Sept. 4, we gave the American Red Cross 126 good units of blood. That means we went above and beyond our goal. Melva and I are ecstatic. Our thanks go to all our faithful donors who came and gave blood. We know we have a wonderful group of people who always support the blood drive.
Showing up and giving their time are our volunteers. They make everything go as smoothly as possible. We are so proud of them. We are always grateful to the El Dorado Times and Channel 7 for our publicity and the First Baptist Church for the use of their facility. A special thanks goes to C & J and the Greenes for their contribution of all of our 16 ounce cups. They gave me more than I ordered!
Maybe I haven't mentioned that we have three great guys who get all the posters up all over town. (There might be a wife doing part of that!)
Our next blood drive is Tuesday, Nov. 13 at Trinity United Methodist Church. We'd love to see all of you there.
Sincerely and gratefully,
- Ramona Clanton and Melva Lincicome, El Dorado
