Summer Blood Drive A Huge Success!
Thank you to all who made last Friday's annual Summer Blood Drive a huge success! We collected 93 units of blood, which is good on any day, but outstanding considering the terrible weather and that it fell on a holiday weekend.
Special thanks to Brother Knight Denis Hanrahan for his tireless efforts, along with our friends at the Driscoll Lodge FOP, Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services, and local FDNY members, who co-sponsor our semiannual blood drives. See you all again in December!
