1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

According to the Red Cross, here are some blood facts:

  • Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
  • More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day.
  • A total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year in the U.S.
  • The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 pints.
  • The blood type most often requested by hospitals is Type O.
  • The blood used in an emergency is already on the shelves before the event occurs.
  • Sickle cell disease affects more than 70,000 people in the U.S. About 1,000 babies are born with the disease each year. Sickle cell patients can require frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives.
  • More than 1.6 million people were diagnosed with cancer last year. Many of them will need blood, sometimes daily, during their chemotherapy treatment.
  • A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood.
Donors can sign up online for an appointment and a Rapid Pass to speed up the donation progress. Go to http://www.redcrossblood.org/  to sign up today!

Lobster Fest 2015

Thanks to all those who came and participated in the Wallingford Rotary’s Lobster Fest 2015. The club was able to meet its budget with regard to this fundraising event which helps support its scholarship program.

Special thanks to the Mill River Union High School Key Club members who gave up their Sunday to come and help us set up and serve! We could not have done it without your help!

Here are some pictures of the event. If you missed this year’s event, our next Lobster Fest will be held on Sunday August 21, 2016!

Our New District Governor

Rotary Wallingford

Our new district governor, Sandra McGonagle visited with us this last week for our breakfast meeting. She shared her vision for our district and the vision of the new Rotary International president, Ravi Ravidran, from Sri Lanka. This year’s theme for Rotary is “Be a gift to the world”.  Sandra shared her and her husband’s gifts to their community and encouraged us to share our gifts with our own community.

The Wallingford Rotary wishes Governor McGonagle a wonderful year and we look forward to visiting with her again soon.

What gifts can you share with the world … or your part of it?
