Pizza boxes, blood and saving lives

The events of September 11, 2001 were so traumatic and demoralizing, it helps if one can work on a life-affirming activity.

A lot of pepperoni and cheese gave their all last Sunday because you gave yours!

As Nan Procyson says, we hold the blood drive at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula as an annual event in remembrance of 9/11/2001. I have known people who have benefited from donated blood.  As each of us is part of society, we should work in the benefit of it.

The blood drive collected thirty-three pints of blood from you to save lives but that’s just a number.

One man traveled from Hampton by bus to join us. He seemed to be a non-native speaker of English, but we were able to communicate our appreciation.

The power of a Fellowship Circle! Nan Procyson (coordinator), Charlene Brown-Smith, Lin Chambers, Barbara Crossman, Larry Gaston,  Scott Kasmire, Lehni Lebert, Kathryn Özyurt, Hilary Probst and Parker Stokes.

Another woman was dedicated to donating on 9/11; she so was glad we were offering this opportunity.

This is truly outreach by the Fellowship.
