DemiCon 19 Blood Drive -
Once again we will be holding the blood drive on Saturday morning, May 19, from 9:30AM to 2:30PM.
Please remember to drink plenty of fluids, eat a good meal before donating,
and try to increase your iron intake before donating blood. We have had 2 successful
blood drives and would like to continue this tradition. Our blood drive is inspired
by the “Pay it forward” philosophy of Robert Heinlein and the Heinlein Society’s blood drives.
