This amount will help 108 people as each unit of blood can help 3 people. For example, plasma to a burn patient victim, red blood cells to a heart surgery or cancer patient and platelets to a leukemia patient. So to those 36 donors and 3 would- be donors, many, many thanks. Special notice to Don Hardy, who belongs to the 8-gallon club. A plaque was given to Herbert Glissendorf, who belongs to the 3-gallon club. Those to receive plaques are 4-gallon members Lonnie Mallegni, Richard Polnow and Mary Lou Hardy and 3-gallon members Connie Westphal, Michael Schiesher, Jim Bond and Rich Diedrick. Your chairman, May Chesak, wishes to thank the First Congregational Church for the use of the Social Hall and facilities; to Jann Crabill for all her valuable help; to Fern Enstrom and Arlene Mattingly for help in many various ways; to the print-out callers Shirley Hartrick, Francis Fox, Arlene Mattingly, Carol Donahue and Doris Ball; to the 3 churches for helping to publicize it; to the Huntley Farmside for all its helpful publicity; to the many business places allowing posters to be displayed; and to any others who helped in some way. Most of all, grateful appreciation is expressed to the Blood Donors who made our day!
