To the Editor:

Many thanks to all the blood donors, volunteers and gracious St. Paul's Church ladies who furnished the delicious canteen of our last blood drive in July. We went over our goal.

Thanks to Bagel Works, Mrs. Murphy's, Wilcox Ice Cream, Price Chopper and Shaw's. The processing was speedy. Please call to make an appointment at 1-800-733-2767.

The next blood drive will be Wednesday, Sept. 24, noon to 5:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, Manchester Village. Your blood saves lives.
