The Governors Village Community held a blood drive on May 25th. Over 50 people signed up to support this endeavour.

We will be holding these drives twice a year, one in May the other in September. The Blood Connection brought two Bloodmobiles to process volunteers in a timely manner.

Once again, Michael Barefoot and Tim Manale coordinated the drive working with The Blood Connection to make sure that everything ran smoothly.

Although some volunteers were unable to donate their blood there were several walk-ins to help make up any difference.

It is convenient to have this opportunity within our community. It is a chance to do something good for a small amount of time and effort.

The Blood Drive continued into the afternoon, but these pictures do not include those volunteers who came later. All are heroes or heroines and are commended. Whether you were accepted as a donor or not, we applaud you.

Once upon a time a donor was asked how they felt after donating blood. The expected answer might have been weak or tired. Instead, the donor said “Noble”. Seldom do we have an opportunity to feel this way. We should seize it!

Please enjoy the pictures of this special event. To quote the message on the Bloodmobiles, “Sharing Life. Saving Lives”.
