    Driving for more blood

    We would like to thank everyone who supported the Barre blood drive in September. We gathered 133 pints. This is well below our goal, so we hope for a good turnout in November. Special thanks go to the Tuffy Doyle family who co-sponsored the blood drive in thanks for the blood transfusions that Tuffy has received. They made delicious sandwiches and goodies, volunteered at the drive that day and provided coupons for creamees from Willís Store in Chelsea and Bragg Farm in East Montpelier.

    The next Barre blood drive is Monday, Nov. 18, from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Barre Elks Lodge. Chef John Cutler and his crew are once again going to provide donors a delicious turkey and biscuit lunch. It is not too early to make your appointment for this drive. Please call 800-RED-CROSS or log on to www.redcrossblood.org. We have much to be thankful for. Let us show our thanks by giving the most precious gift of all: the gift of life. All blood types are urgently needed.
