To the EDN:
The American Red Cross returned to Estherville on Valentines Day for another successful blood drive. Quite a few volunteer donors found that donating blood on Valentines Day is a wonderful way to show and share your love.
Garald Guge received his 7-gallon pin. We had 6 new-or new to us-donors. So, we welcome or welcome back Gregg Bohl, Gilbert Amdahl, Jeffrey Kautz, Janette Forsberg, Barbara Schacherer, Nick Eden and Francis Spear. Hope to see all of you at the next blood drive.
The NorthStar Bank and Agency sponsored this blood drive. It is really not hard or expensive to sponsor a blood drive. You get advertising all over town on the Red Cross flyers, on KILR and in the Estherville Daily News. All that is required of a sponsor is to provide one roll of postcard stamps, 22 dozen cookies and 5gallonsof juice. You get the glory, and I do all the work! Please think about sponsoring one of the four blood drives we have here in Estherville every year and give me a call at 712-209-0922.
Our next blood drive will be on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, at the Duhigg Center and will be sponsored by Dr. Baker and Dr. Webb of The Eyecare Center.
Thank you to all who came by on Valentines Day and shared some love.
ARC Blood Drive Coordinator for Estherville
