To the EDN:

The United Methodist Church sponsored the latest Red Cross blood drive here in Estherville Aug. 7. We had a great turnout and were able to donate a total of 67 units of blood!

Julie Montandon was awarded her 1 gallon pin and Dan Burton got his 2 gallon pin. Newcomers, first-time donors were Jon Rolfson, Amy Akin and Larry Dupont. Welcome to the “family” Jon, Amy and Larry. I know that we will be seeing much more of you in the coming months.

I would like to extend a very special thank you to the congregation of the United Methodist Church here in Estherville. The cookies were delicious, the juice and coffee were abundant, the general “is there anything else we can do to help” attitude of everyone involved sure did cheer me up. THANK YOU!

The Red Cross will be returning to Estherville on Oct. 21 for the next blood drive. We will be at the Christensen Centerat Iowa Lakes Community College and this will be the annual college blood drive. So, make plans to come on over to the Christensen on Oct. 21. See you there.
