Coordinated by Club Past President Dale Hudson, and in conjunction with the American Red Cross and hosted by the Lone Tree Golf & Event Center, the effort will benefit up to 162 patients in local community hospitals, saving lives. Since December of 2007, the local service club’s blood drives have collected a total of 168 units of blood, aiding up to 502 patients in the Antioch community.
“We appreciate all those from the community and our club members who stepped up and donated this year,” Hudson said. “It’s one small way Rotary is making a difference in our community.”
The Antioch Rotary Club has been serving Antioch and the world since 1947 through local and international service projects. Members meet for lunch every Thursday at noon at the Lone Tree Golf & Event Center. For more information or for membership, visit www.antiochrotary.com.
