Bothwell Auxiliary Volunteer Marge Watson recently accepted an award from the Community Blood Center of Kansas City recognizing Sedalia as a member of the Community Star Club for having donated more than 400 units of blood in 2012.
Watson helped coordinate the three community blood drives Bothwell Regional Health Center hosted in 2012. The Community Blood Center supplies blood products to Bothwell so donations are more likely to remain local.
The next blood drive will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, at First Christian Church, which hosts local blood drives in Sedalia every other month. Submitted photo.
