Thank you to all who participated in the ConnectLife blood drive sponsored by Randy Hoak for Hamburg Supervisor on June 7 at the Hamburg Moose Lodge. We had 18 donors participate - the most in Hamburg to date - which in turn is going to save the lives of 42 local patients!

And don't worry, if you weren't able to participate, we will be sponsoring additional drives later this summer. But you don't have to wait either. Just visit the ConnectLife website and find a blood drive or make an appointment today.
