Donors keep on giving

To the Editor:

Blood donors braved the elements to give 293 units at the recent Red Cross Blood Drive in Fairmont. Thanks to all the donors and volunteers for the event.

Pins were awarded as follows: Bart Stadtherr, 16 gallons; Merlin Oddan, 15 gallons; Bruce Ehlert, 13 gallons; Marie Madsen, 11 gallons; and Ann Gemmill, 7 gallons.

Thanks to Valerie Hooper and the Beta Sigma Phi sorority for their gracious gifts of Christmas cookies. Thanks also to John McDonald, Kyle Redenius and the Sentence to Service troops, and Bruce Peters of Peters Insurance Agency for their support. Special thanks to Bev Villeneuve, who has retired as canteen coordinator after 13 years of continued service.

We always appreciate the use of the Fairmont Holiday Inn, and thank Michael Christians, Angie Garbers and staff for their support.

The next Bloodmobile will be held Feb. 11-13 in Fairmont.
