Rotary Blood Drive - June 7, 2018, 3:30 - 7:30                                    

Blood Center of Wisconsin, 1120 S. Sunnyslope Drive


The blood supply is usually very tight, sometimes critically so, which is why we hold our blood drives when we do, early in the summer and right after the Christmas Holidays. A very high percentage of blood donations come from school based blood drives. No school = fewer blood drives = lower inventory.


For those who are able, PLEASE consider donating and PLEASE share this opportunity with friends, family, employees, all know people with blood!


There will be a sign-up sheet going around on Fridays or you can schedule your own appointment at: If you need a time more convenient than June 7please call: 877-BEA-HERO or online at:


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


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


It only hurts a little (very little) and every blood donation helps to save three lives.



Tom Meyer

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.
