2021 Holiday Blood Drive
December 23, 2021
Dear New Glarus Community,
Thank you one and all for a very successful Drive on Friday, December 17. First of all, a Thank You from Janet Schlimgen White: “It is because of people like you that Ron was able to live longer with getting weekly blood infusions before succumbing to his blood disease of myelofibrosis.”
We were assigned a goal of 77 units of blood and you all achieved 78! There were a total of 62 whole units and 16 Power Reds. Scheduling was very tight but we managed to include eight walk-ins. A big shout out to all the worker bees for food and help: Food detail: Lynette Reed, Eloise Kuenzi, Iola Isely, Maple Leaf Cheese and Chocolate Haus, Hoesly’s Meats, Culver’s, New Glarus Bakery, Janet Keener, JoAnn Arn, Karen Strahm, Marge Klassy. Volunteer detail: Ruth Anderegg, Louise Lee, Steve Arn, JoAnn Arn, Linda Coughlin, Bill Kuenzi Jr., Sara Siegenthaler.
Merry Christmas to you all,
Ruth Anderegg, Linda Coughlin, Bill Kuenzi Jr.,
New Glarus Community Blood Drive Coordinators
