On December 14, Temple Lodge 65 hosted its first-ever American Red Cross Blood drive from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. The turnout was amazing and the Red Cross was thrilled with result. The event was almost fully sold out, which is unusual for a first-time drive. The drive generated 27 pints of blood from the over 40 donors that arrived to make donations. The event was made possible by the generous help and participation of lodge members including Pat Lunt and RW Sandy Lunt, Jerry Gregory, Bruce Duff, Mark Yurkiw, PM Tony Giunta, PM John Kahler, Adam Failace, TJ Elgin, and Mark Agnew JW.
