"Another year, another successful blood drive" as the saying goes. This year we had over 30 people donate despite the rainy day. Their donations go to help save the lives of people all across the region. Plans have already been discussed on how to improve future blood drives with the Red Cross and we look forward to next year's.
One way to build the culture of life is by promoting the dignity of persons with intellectual disabilities by encouraging all to support the Maryland Special Olympics as volunteers or promoters. While our council has not scheduled a group volunteer opportunity, this message is offered to you and your families to consider a volunteer shift between June 5- 11, 2017.
More information on the Maryland Special Olympics can be found at www.somd.org.
The tournament was held on Saturday April 29th at Greenbelt Lake. We had several fish
caught. The winner was the youngest child to enter. Mary Hatcher(Chuck’s widow) showed
up to cheer the kids on. It was so nice to have Mary join us at the event her husband started.
I would like to thank everybody that came out to help with special thanks to Jim Cambell who
always does a great job with the kids.
