COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE
On Sunday Sept. 15th the Springfield Community Blood Drive was held. Although we fell short by 2 units, we still collected 46 units which I feel is very good for the Springfield area. Once again thanks to all the donors, the people who attempted to donate, the Springfield Fire Dept., all of the local merchants who display the Red Cross posters, the Churches who advertise in their weekly bulletins and the Springfield website. Without all of you we could not DO IT!
Thanks Again, your Springfield Knights of Columbus and the Red Cross
