Laurel blood drive draws praise from participant

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a Red Cross blood drive conducted at Laurel High School.

It was done under the sponsorship of the National Honor Society chapter at Laurel.

I wish to commend the students, staff and Laurel school district, parents and community for a very pleasant experience.

There were in excess of 100 units of blood collected at the drive. That was a vast amount in excess of the usual amount collected at the regular Tuesday collections at Trinity Episcopal Church in New Castle.

I was very impressed with the demeanor of the students who participated as donors and sponsors. I don’t believe I have met a finer group of students in the area in my 30-plus years as a resident of New Castle.

It was a job well done.

"State Fair" opens at the New Castle Playhouse tonight. Will you be checking out the show?

Definitely! I've already got my tickets.
Maybe. I'm not sure.
Nah, it's not for me.
