July Blood Drive

July Blood Drive

Herndon Lodge and Freedom Lodge are co-hosting a 3rd Blood Drive this year on Saturday, July 29 from 8a to 1p.

Please consider signing up to donate. And if you can’t donate, please recommend our Drive to your family members, friends and co-workers.   Giving blood is a generous, selfless, and beneficial thing to do for the community, and will help to ensure that an adequate supply of blood is available for the victims of accidents, patients needing to undergo lifesaving operations, and patients of all ages who depend on transfusion to survive.

Blood has to be there on the shelf ready to use if a disaster, an emergency surgery, or other unforeseen crisis occurs. It takes days of processing of donated blood in order to make it ready to use, and the only way to keep the blood supply ready is to donate whenever you can. Organizations like ours are huge help in the effort to ensure that the blood supply is maintained.

You can visit www.inova.org/donateblood and use sponsor code 7438 and make an appointment yourself, or you can call me at 703-655-4655 and I will make an appointment for you.

We have had good success in our past blood drives, but the need never diminishes. We need volunteer donors now. Please consider being one of them!

When you participate you will be giving something that can’t be manufactured artificially in the lab, and might mean the difference between life and death for someone!!

June activities

Herndon Lodge members have been active.   150 Children were provided IDs and the Lodge helped marshal the fireworks displays for the Herndon Festival (see separate posts).

Herndon Brothers joined with the Civil War Lodge of Research for a wreath laying at the Virginia memorial on the Gettysburg Battlefield – it was the 100th anniversary of the memorial.

 

 

At our Lodge’s Stated Communication, Brother Brutus Cooper was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason.  Congratulations and welcome to Herndon Lodge Brother Brutus.  Worshipful Howie visited with Herndon Elementary to present the “Leadership Award” to 2 deserving graduating 6th graders.

To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the United Grand Lodge of England, several Brothers again traveled to PA to a “Cave Degree” at Indian Echo Caverns to witness a Master Masons Degree and welcome a newly raised Brother to the Craft.

 

 

 

Come out to join the activities

and re-engage yourself with the Lodge!
