Much Obliged-Garrison blood drive

Gift of life

We want to express our thanks to all who helped in any way to make the recent blood drive on Nov. 29 a success in Garrison. We collected 46 units that day.

Thanks to the cooks for the meal, the volunteers from Light of the Cross and the VFW who helped make the room ready and to those who put it back the way it was. To the VFW Auxiliary who baked the cookies as well as the greeters and Light of the Cross for the use of their facility. It is through the combined efforts of all of the above mentioned and the donors as well, we accomplished the gathering of 46 units of blood.

We look forward to seeing many of you at the next drive scheduled for June 13, 2013.
