A very big Thank You

I just wanted to thank everyone that came out on May 17th to donate blood.  We had 42 sign up, 14 people did not show up, 6 were deferred, and we had numerous walk ins that made up for the ones that did not show.  We ended up with 28 pints of blood.  That is 12 more than we got in the Fall, but a very low number considering that we have 1150 plus members.
