Saving lives

February 15, 2017

To the editor:

The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 136 extends a sincere thank you to all of the donors that participated in our Annual Blood Drive on Friday, Jan. 27. We registered 31 donors and collected 30 units of blood. Because each donation is separated into three different life saving components, up to 90 people will receive help that often save their lives.

American Legion Post 136 deserves a round of applause as well, for treating all of the donors to lunch or a beverage of their choice as their way of saying thank you.

Finally, we offer a job well done to Linda Mitchell and her staff; no pun intended, for keeping up with the hungry donors, and her regular Friday diners. Her burgers are the best!

You are all heroes in the eyes of those in need.

For God and country,

DJ Ruscik
