Blood Drive – September 3

Thank you!

Due to the efforts of those who donated, INOVA was able to collect 25 units of blood.   Special thanks to Brother Rob Martin for coordinating the effort.

INOVA Blood Services reports that current blood bank levels are dangerously low.   Unfortunately, they are expecting demand to spike over the Labor Day Weekend.

In an effort to help, aid, and assist Herndon Lodge will be hosting a blood drive on Thursday September 3 from 8a until 1p.

Help us to help others.   Make an appointment, come by to help out at the registration desk, and certainly spread the word to others.   We’ll need all the donors we can get!

Remember, your gift of life may save someone near to you.


Blood Drive

From our Blood Coordinator

Brother, I need your help.
Our Lodge is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Friday, July 27, from 1 pm to 6 pm. We have many slots to fill with appointments. In the past we have had members of the lodge volunteer to donate, and have also received donations from “walk-ins” who have seen our sign, the posters around town, or the Bloodmobile. Combined, we alway just barely make the minimum target number of donations.

As usual, I have spoken in our Stated Meeting about the upcoming drive, and now I need your involvement. I know that there are many of us that can’t donate themselves for a multitude of reasons. And I know that work schedules get in the way as well. But do you think that you could help me recruit some donors? If each of us could get  a friend, a family member, or co-worker to consider donating, we would be able to fill up the schedule and make our goal, which is 40 donations.

We all know how donating blood is a good thing. Another good thing would be helping Herndon Lodge and the American Red Cross reach the goal for this blood drive. Please, see if you can help us fill out the schedule!

Sign-up is easy, just go to “” and put in the sponsor keyword “HerndonMasons”. Or email me at
