To the Editor:

Many thanks to all the blood donors and volunteers of our last blood drive.

We went over our goal. The crew from Burlington is working to increase staff to speed up the process. Thanks to Bagel Works, Mrs. Murphy's, Wilcox Ice Cream, Price Chopper and Shaw's. The next blood drive will be March 12, noon to 5:30 p.m., at the First Congregational Church, Manchester Village. Please mark your calendars. Your blood saves lives.
