Putting out a call for blood donors

By Eloise Hollyfield
A call for blood donors and a correction of information is this week’s OTOW Happenings.

Life South Blood Mobile
Next month celebrates Labor Day. On this first Monday of September of each year, we always celebrate the gift of our labor —the contributions to the economy and to our own struggles for the American dream.
Times for many this year are even more difficult than usual, but we have a number of ways to contribute to the American dream.
 Stop in and leave a pint of blood for those who need it! One pint from you helps save three others. The Life South Bloodmobile will be stationed in the parking lot at the Health and Recreation Building in On Top of the World Monday, Sept. 3, Labor Day, 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. to accept your donation.
Drop by, roll up a sleeve, and spend a few minutes with our trained staff; enjoy a refreshing beverage, a small gift of gratitude, and a fantastic feeling that your labors too are appreciated! Yes, we mean you!
By the way, 22 of your fellow residents warmed up for the Olympics by giving the gift of life in July at the Life South Bloodmobile.
Their donations means that more than 60 others received the gift of blood from these heroes: Catherine Bennett; Guy Bruno; Linda Bruno; Richard Copeland; Kathleen Dushary; Barbara Enos; Paul Estock; Eve Gillespie; Thomas Haynes; Joseph Hilchey; Edward Hobbs; Robert Kawalec; James Kerwick; Edward Lalonde; Nancy Ludvic; John Maczak; Roger McKay; Simone Salesses; Thomas Seitz; David Shelburne; Hazel Taylor; and Michael Thomas.

Travel Toppers
Correction: The Aug. 17 issue reported that the new Travel Toppers brochure “now contains the correction for the Thanksgiving Day trip to the Sleuth Mystery Theater. Departure time will be at 10 a.m. with return around 5 p.m. Reservations for the trip begin Sept. 10, so mark your calendar, so you don’t miss this event.”
The brochure has, in fact, NOT been corrected, so if you are interested in this particular trip, you need to write in the information yourself on your copy of their brochure.
