Letter: Thanks for giving of yourselves

We would like to thank everyone who came to the Washington fire hall on Jan. 9 to donate blood for the American Red Cross Bloodmobile. A total of 24 usable pints of blood were collected. The Red Cross has been especially hard hit with low numbers of donations due to the flu outbreak, so they greatly appreciate those who are able to come and even attempt to donate! We also thank Chief Gary Jenkins and the volunteers at the fire hall for allowing us the use of their building. Please look for the next blood drive there at the end of June!
