Our Program Last Week by Powell Jones

Thank you Powell for your great program last week. An email was sent out on Friday with all the details of his presenation. Powell also wanted to share with us some beautiful flower pictures that he had taken to brighten the day for the ladies in his family. Enjoy!

How can YOU help during the Covid-19 outbreak?

Our regularly scheduled Blood Drive on April 16th has been cancelled in light of the current circumstances.

However, we encourage each Rotarian to continue to give blood if able at our local One Blood Center (14815 WHY 19 #800, which is between Seminole Wind and Firehouse Subs) anytime between April 10 - 23 in order to stay on schedule for the next blood drive on June 18th. If you donate AFTER April 23, you will not be eligible to donate again on June 18. You must wait a minimum of 56 days between whole blood donations.

Bob Drummond, our Blood Drive Champion, will be going to the One Blood donation center after our meeting on April 16th (whether it be a physical meeting or online). You can call ahead to schedule a donation time or do it online. Walk-ins will not be taken at this time. https://www.oneblood.org/donate-now/corona.stml

After you donate, please let Bob Drummond know so that we can apply a make-up for you.
