The Colchester-Milton Rotary club heard there was a significant blood shortage in Vermont and surrounding areas and decided to sponsor a Red Cross Blood drive on October 13, 2021, at the Colchester Meetinghouse on Main Street. 36 units of blood were collected including 8 first-time donors participating. These 36 units will help 108 patients!
Rotarians that participated on-site with check-in and check-out responsibilities: Chuck Ginsburg, Karen Trombley, Michael Swaidner, Bob, and Sue Mohr. Rotarians that donated blood: Leora Black, John Abry, Kelly McCagg, Chuck Ginsberg, Tim Brisson, Kathi Walker O’Reilly, and James Mount. See all the photos here. A special thanks to Leora Black for organizing this event and to all who donated :-)
