Blood Drive

Our next blood drive is on a non-school day, 11/30 1pm-7pm. It is the Monday after Thanksgiving. I hope you can find some time to come out and donate. The drive is being held at the Buckeye Lake Fraternal Order of Eagles (3240 Walnut Rd). If you are interested, let me know a good time and I will set up an appointment for you. The whole process takes around 30-45 minutes. Thanks!
