Legion Post to host festival blood drive
American Legion Post #77, Commander Henry “Pete” Melancon, will sponsor its 25th annual
community Pre-Frog Festival Blood Drive on Saturday, Aug. 30. United Blood Services
will be drawing blood from 8:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Rayne American Legion Home.
All donors will be given a Frog Festival themed t-shirt and a chance to win a new GMC
Canyon Pickup Truck donated by Courtesy Automotive Group. Rayne State Bank, Bank of
Commerce, and Rayne Building and Loan provide the funds for the t-shirts.
Everyone in the community is encouraged to donate and give the “gift of life.” It’s a great
feeling to know that by donating blood you may have saved a life. Remember, there is no
substitute for blood- should you or your loved one need blood you will be grateful for blood
Bring identification to the blood drive.
