To the Editor:

Resurrection Catholic Church sponsored an American Red Cross blood drive for the Smith Mountain Lake Community on April 20, 2016 from 12:00pm to 6:00pm. We would like to extend a special thank-you to the American Red Cross staff for the wonderful job they did. The blood drive was facilitated by Jim and Millie Hurlburt, and Tami Akin.

We would like to also extend our gracious thanks for the wonderful job done by our volunteers. We could not have done this without them. A special thank-you goes out to all who assisted with the blood drive including: Helen Fournier, Mickie Koch, Janice Mayott, Connie Lutz, Barb Finch, Pat Bailey, Jim and Millie Hurlbert. Additionally, we would like to thank the volunteers that provided food, drinks, and snacks for the blood drive including: the American Red Cross, Janice Mayott, Helen Fournier, Barb Finch, and Millie and Jim Hurlbert.

A special thank you to the 41 people who showed up to donate blood (2 were deferred) for this wonderful cause. The American Red Cross collected a total of 39 units. Thank-you to everyone, for our wonderful success.


Tami Akin MSN, RN (Parish Nurse)
