The Loveland Satellite Rotary Club is doing a blood drive as local supplies are very low.  They are using the Garth Englund Blood Center at Medical Center of the Rockies primarily though it doesn't matter where one goes.  You can send Friends and Family and say Rotary sent me!  Through July they will be counting what Rotary Club donates the most blood, Loveland or Fort Collins.
