Blood is always in short supply, or so it seems. The summer season, with vacations and folks traveling, creates an additional strain on supplies.
However, the American Red Cross Bloodmobile held last Thursday in Bryan at the Bryan Knights of Columbus Hall was a big success, with 98 units collected.
Some area donors were presented with awards for hitting milestones, such as James Davis, who was honored for having given 21 gallons of blood over the years.
Food for the donors was provided by the First Church of Christ of Bryan and prepared by local volunteers. The Bryan Knights of Columbus donated the use of their building and the Bryan Lions Club assisted.
