Nov 11th -- Blood Drive
A bright shiny new Inova Bloodmobile, only on its second voyage, stood outside Rock Spring UCC on Little Falls Road for four hours on Sunday as nearly 30 donors filed in and provided the community with life-saving pints of blood. The drive was coordinated by Rock Spring with the assistance of the Arlington Rotary Club, a new partnership. Donors came from lists provided by Inova, some who saw fliers posted around the area and at other local churches, as well as a few last-minute walk-ins.
Rotarians actively involved included Linda Valentino and Hugh Barton, who donated blood, Gary Long with his wife Jan, who assisted with registration, as well as Billy Cullipher, Steve Silcox and others who made calls and sent emails to prospective donors. Rock Spring UCC Associate Pastor Laura Martin was the church’s coordinator of the drive while Hugh Barton represented ARC.
