Looking for New Blood!

Rotary Blood Drive - January 18, 2018

January is right around the corner and it is time to begin recruiting donors for the Rotary Blood Drive, Thursday, January 18 from 3:30 to 7:30 at the Sunnyslope Donor Center. We are off to a great start with 13 people signed up at the December 1 meeting.

I am (still) hoping to recruit one or two members to help promote the blood drive to organizations and businesses in the Racine area so that we can maximize the potential beyond just the club. Please consider sharing this opportunity with friends, family, employees, all know people with blood!

Prefer to donate on your own during the day on January 18th or any other day? Call: 877-232-4376 or online at:

Questions, please email: or call: 262-308-2632.

Please give the blood center staff our donor code: 000643 when donating.

FACT...........every blood donation helps to save three lives.

Take a look and make sure you are prepared for your duty! The next 7 weeks of this schedule are always at the end of this newsletter (RYFNL).




Rotarians, please post things to these sites, and when doing so to "hash tag" #RACINEROTARY.  This will connect all of our posts to each other.





 If you have speaker duty please let me know two weeks in advance who your speaker is or what your program is so I can get the info to the newsletter. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please attempt to reach out to other club members for assistance and let Patrick Booth or Tom Leuenberger know what the program will be.
