Thanks to blood donors

Thursday, February 7, 2008

To the Editor,

The Bourbon County Chapter of the american Red Cross would like to thank all donors, volunteers and the folks at Fort Scott Community College who helped make our recent blood drive a success. Our goal for this drive was 150 units and we collected 152 units for the two-day event! To exceed our goal this time of the year is truly outstanding. the winners of the prepaid Visa gift cards are: Barbara McCord, DeeAnn VanLuyck, Brad Peel and Mary Pemberton, all of Fort Scott; Robin Fleischer of Butler, Mo.; and Walter Thatcher of Pleasanton, Kan. The next Bourbon County Blood Drive will be April 21 and 22 at Fort Scott Christian Heights. More details to follow. Again, thank you to all who helped make this blood drive a success -- together you helped save a life.
