The Harmony blood drive held on Tuesday, Sept. 25, exceeded its goal of 61 by collecting 64 units. There were 65 donors presenting, of which seven were first-time donors.

In addition to exceeding the goal, the following milestones were reached by local donors: Brian Bratager - 3 gallons; Anna Hershberger - 1 gallon; Eli Hershberger - 3 gallons; Chris Johnson - 8 gallons; Jane Montgomery - 4 gallons; Andrew A. Slabaugh - 1 gallon.

Organizers thank all the dedicated donors, as well as those who volunteered their time or donated food for the canteen. The community's outstanding support in this effort is greatly appreciated.

The next bloodmobile will be in Harmony on Tuesday, Dec. 11. If one would like to schedule an appointment, call Marilyn Bratager at (507) 937-3406 or schedule one online at
