On Monday, October 26th, Barb Jansen and Marilyn Anderson Red Cross coordinators held the Exeter Blood Drive at the American Legion Hall. Despite the cold snowy start of the day, the goal of 40 units of blood was met. Forty-five units were donated including six units of Power Reds and 39 whole blood units. The Exeter Methodist Women's group provided delicious bagged sandwiches and cookies for the donors to take with them following their donations. Alan Songster was kind enough to scoop the sidewalks and Sharon Dyer helped sanitized the chairs, reading material, and pens. Bonnie Cudaback helped at the canteen and Rhonda Maxson and Jim Anderson cleaned the Legion and set the chairs and tables back up. The coordinators “appreciate everyone that came out and helped save a life, we really need each and everyone's help and donation.” The next Blood Drive will be in Fairmont on Monday, December 21st. Call Bonnie Gangstad or go to redcrossblood.org to schedule the time you want!
