March is National American Red Cross Month! I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many churches, businesses and organizations who have sponsored blood drives this past 12 years here in Estherville-and especially the donors. Without the donors, we would not have been able to help the many thousands of people in need. I also must thank St. Patrick's parish for allowing the Red Cross to use the Duhigg Center so often for blood drives. And the wonderful volunteers at RSVP. Couldn't have done it without you! You are all awesome, and I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.
My last Red Cross blood drive will be on May 6 at the Duhigg Center and sponsored by Drs. Bruns and Williams. I am retiring from the Red Cross due to some stupid health reason. I hope that someone will step up and volunteer to coordinate the four Red Cross blood drives a year. It really doesn't take a lot of work and the day of the drive is more fun than work. If you are interested, please call me at 712-209-0922. I have it pretty well organized and will help.
So Happy American Red Cross Month Estherville. This community is a wonderful place and I am so happy to be a part of it. Thank you for all you have done for the Red Cross over the years.
