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.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
