Gayle Voyer, Territory Manager, with Canadian Blood Services, joined us this morning to provide an orientation for members who will be working at the Blood Donor Clinic at Winfield Memorial Hall, on August 30. 
Gayle informed us that about half of the 90 available appointments slots have been filled so far.  There is still lots of time to fill the remaining appointment spaces so everyone is asked to encourage our friends and family members to call for an appointment.
Potential donors must be:
·        17 years or older;
·        weigh a minimum of 110 pounds;
·        be in general good health and feeling well;
·        have eaten good meal before donating;
·        be well hydrated.
All interested blood donors should complete the online questionnaire (see above) before calling for an appointment to verify that they are eligible to donate blood.
