The blood drive held in Harmony on Tuesday, July 16, succeeded in collecting 37 units of blood. This number was achieved by several donors giving two units, as there were only 34 donors who presented and two first-time participants.

Congratulations to these eight donors who reached the following milestones.

Pete Bissen - 6 gallons

Donovan Brink - 8 gallons

Veda Elston - 3 gallons

Mary Ann Johnson - 3 gallons

Sylvia Leitzen - 3 gallons

Monica Ortner - 3 gallons

Jerry Shuck - 4 gallons

Emery C. Stutzman - 4 gallons

The bloodmobile is sponsored by the Harmony American Legion Auxiliary and many of the volunteers are Auxiliary members. However, numerous volunteers from the community also help make the blood drives successful.

The organizers thank all for their continued support in this worthwhile effort.

The next bloodmobile will be in Harmony on Tuesday, Sept. 24. If one would like to schedule an appointment, call Marilyn Bratager at (507) 937-3406 or schedule one online at
