Generosity is alive and well in Pahrump by Mary Lamar Gazette Staff PAHRUMP--Saturday's blood drive brought everyone from retired citizens to Sheriff's deputies. People from all walks of life rolled up their sleeves and gave the gift of life. Jan Dolan of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Ladies Auxiliary and this year's blood drive chairperson, was pleased with everyone who came out for this worthy cause. But there were far less people than needed. "There are so many people here, if just half came out what a difference we could make." Dolan recalled her earlier days with the blood drive, in 1980 about 80 percent of the population came out to support this much-needed service. "These days, you're lucky to get 10 percent of the town to show up. Our town is growing so rapidly and we really need people to come and give blood." On October 25 1997 Pahrump will get a second chance to do its part. United Blood Services will be visiting once again. Nye County Deputies would like to take this opportunity to challenge the fire department and the ambu- lance bay to see who can raise the most blood donations. Everyone is encouraged to join all three agencies in a Two local firefighters friendly competition to see who will donate the most blood. The sponsors ask, remember to eat good and healthy meals, drink plenty of water and show up you at the next blood drive on October 25 at the Bob Ruud Community Buildin at 9 a.m. PROTECT AND SERVE- Deputy gives till it hurts Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, August 21, 1997 21 Gazette Staff achieve the title of Instructor One.
