Red Cross Blood Drive

Can you spare a drop of blood

The need does not go away when we move through the busy holiday season. If you have not donated before, please consider a very special gift which could save the life of someone in your community.

Dunkin Donuts is supplying our blood drive with $5.00 Dunkin Donuts Cards while they last to everyone who donates blood.

The greater reward: Providing a gift that doesn't need to be wrapped but will be thankfully re-ceived by someone in need.

How you can become involved: The schedule is on the long table in the foyer where you can sign up to be a donor, bake cookies or help register donors as they arrive on January 26.

You can also call the Red Cross (1-800-Red-Cross) or visit to schedule a donation. Questions or more information call Carrie Pierce 518-283-0130 or contact Carrier Larson.


The Eco-Team will be holding an Eco-Fair on Sunday, March 18 at 11:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall.
