To the editor:
A big thank you to all those who supported our Feb 8 LMHS Blood Drive at the Pine Island Moose Lodge. Thank you to Stonegate Bank for advertising the crave for us.
What an excellent turn-out we had! I was so impressed by the fantastic pancake and sausage breakfast (including fresh strawberries!) the Moose provided to the blood donors and purple bus staff. It was absolutely delicious!
And, of course, a big thank you to the blood donors themselves ... the whole purpose of the blood drive. You have helped so many in our local hospitals with your generous gift of blood. Thank you for choosing to keep your blood in Lee County.
I noticed in the Feb. 12 edition of the PI Eagle that there is another LMHS Blood Drive on Pine Island Friday, Feb. 21, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This one will be in the clubhouse parking lot at Pine Island Cove. The article said to look for the big red bus. Actually, look for the big PURPLE bus. (The red bus is "the other guys.") So if you missed the purple bus at The Moose, consider donating at Pine Island Cove Feb. 21 in memory of Paul Williams. Remember, wherever you choose to donate blood, it all is used to help those in need, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless you all.
