Blood drive results

The Miller-Keystone Blood Center's community blood drive on Monday, Feb. 13 at the First United Church of Christ was considerably more successful than the previous drive in December. Although the goal of having 75 potential donors registered was not quite reached, with 72 people signing in, 68 units were collected. This visit was sponsored by the Aquashicola Fire Company.

Manuel Muniz reached the 4-gallon level. There were three first-time donors.

In addition to donors, each blood drive requires a large number of dedicated volunteers. They included CLIU #21 students Alec Cheesbrough, Kody Glouster, and Ray Kise, plus adults Pam Andrews, Mary Beth Beers, Romaine Biege, Harry Brown, Jane Cervenak, "Honey" Cyr, Arlene Dombrosky, Thomasine Falcone, Jean Fritzinger, Rita Goidich, Jean Halmi, Anita Harry, Betty Hartman, "Biff" Hayes, Marian Hoffner, Bernice Kleintop, Nancy Kresge, Paula Lendvay, Shirley Neff, Helen Nonnemaker, Darlene Nothstein, Carol Papay, Evelyn Plechavy, Sue Olivia, Marge Porambo, Lucille Rex, Terri Sebelin, Perma Snyder, Betty Steigerwalt, Kathy Steigerwalt, Mary Taschler, Lisa Vignone, Annette Wargo, Tara Wargo and Brenda Wentz.

The next Miller-Keystone community blood drive will be on Thursday, April 12, again at 1st UCC.
