To the Editor:

Thanks to all Blood Donors who participated in our last Red Cross Drive. Unfortunately there were a few problems which upset people waiting a long time. About 12, who couldn't wait, unfortunately walked out without donating. We did not reach our goal, but every pint saves a life and we are grateful to those who did give so graciously. The Baptist Church had a lovely canteen and we wish to thank all the volunteers and businesses who contributed: The Bagel Works, Mrs. Murphy's Donuts, Price Chopper, Shaw's, Wilcox Ice Cream.

We hope to see many of you turn out for the next Blood Drive on Wednesday, March 27.
