Our club Secretary, Jerry Hutchens, chairs a committee charged with the task of raising $4 million dollars to complete the funding necessary to build the $28 million Blowing Rock Post Acute Care Facility on highway 321 just north of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Jerry’s presentation Monday brought club members up-to-date on the project that will break ground on June 24th this year.
Our Spring Blood Drive was a huge success. Co-Chair Bill Leahey said that the American Red Cross collected six more pints than the goal for the day. This time the club held the blood drive at the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum and Bill said the BRAHM staff did a great job helping them out. Our next blood drive will be held July 15th at Rumple Church.

Let’s have a lot of Rotarians this year. They have great desserts. Virginia Vanstory said she worked up such an appetite last year that she ate seven!
