To the Editor:

We had a pretty good turnout for the last Blood Drive. We were short of our goal by five pints. Thank you to all the fabulous donors who gave of their precious blood and time.

Thanks also to the great volunteers - we had four members of the Honor Society from the Long Trail School helping out. The Dorset Church Ladies put on a luscious canteen. Many thanks, also, to The Bagel Works, Mrs. Murphy's, and Wilcox Ice Cream.

The next Blood Drive will be on May. 22nd from 12:00 noon until 5:30pm at the First Congregational Church on Rte 7A in Manchester.

Hope to see many new faces there.
