The Exeter-Milligan juniors donated blood for the first time at the Exeter Bloodmobile on February 24th
According to Doris Hall, the Exeter Bloodmobile coordinator, “We did have a very good turnout. Everything worked out good that day.”
“We beat our quota by five pints.” With 37 pints of blood the Exeter Red Cross Bloodmobile was deemed a success. The ladies from the United Church of Christ served the lunch and manned the kitchen.
Greeting donors were Erma Adamson, Evelyn Michl and Elva McBride. Escorting donors were Ginny Adams, Carol Shaffer and Kathleen Wilbeck. Those who assisted in the loading and unloading of equipment were Alva Smith, Sterling Dyer, Dan Manwarren, and Adam Erdkamp.
Unfortunately the donor list and donor records with gallon pin information were not available at the time. The next American Red Cross Bloodmobile in the area will be on April 27th in Fairmont.
