In keeping with the spirit of service in the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Rotary Club of South Orange sponsored a Blood Drive in cooperation with the South Orange Rescue Squad. We did not get as many donors as we had hoped. Perhaps it was because so many people were away for the three day weekend. 

We learned that the Bloodmobile is self-sufficient with room for everything except volunteers and a bathroom. Thanks to the Rescue Squad for the use of their restrooms for donors. 

Many thanks to the Rotarians who volunteered to sit in the Rescue Squad - ready for questions. Many thanks to Stacey Borden for all her efforts to recruit donors and for putting up signs throughout South Orange and Maplewood.

This was only the first attempt - we look forward to doing it again.
