Dear editor,
    Thank you, Paw Paw area donors, for helping us reach our modest goal of 40 pints of blood at last week’s American Red Cross blood drive at the Kristorpher Club (formerly Knights of Columbus) Hall.  Fifty-nine people came to donate, some were rejected, but 47 were successful.  These 47 pints of blood will help close to 150 people in need.  
    What a wonderful gift to give in this season of giving.  Those who attempted are as important as those who were successful.  Thanks to all.
    Our reliable crew of workers deserve credit for the drive’s success: Dan Wydick, Clarence Stimac, Jacqui Groenland, Rick Garcia, Bill Zolp; and for this drive, we had help from a Boy Scout, Nickolaus Schubert, who is working for his medical badge.
    The refreshment table dessert bakers Mary Arbanas, Jacqui Groenland, Virginia Wunderlich, and Patty Hover provided delicious cookies, and Norma Garcia melt-in-your-mouth apple and cherry Danish, for the donors.  Thanks all.
    The next local American Red Cross blood drive at which these donors (AND YOU) can donate will be at the Paw Paw Lions Club on Wednesday, Feb. 13, from noon until 6 p.m.  
    Merry Christmas everyone.
    Frank Wunderlich
    Blood Drive coordinator
