Blood drive scheduled for September

A blood drive is being organized for Abaco on the dates of September 28 and 29. The “Blood Mobile” will be brought up to Abaco from Nassau along with technicians to draw blood. The site for the blood drive will be at Maxwell’s Supermarket in Marsh Harbour. People will be able to donate from 10:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Sponsored by The Rotary Club of Abaco, President Dwayne Wallas expressed that he hopes this event is successful and can become an annual event.

From the Editor’s Desk: Brother’s Keeper

I recently attended a meeting the police held with the public. A lot of business owners were present and many were not very encouraged with the outlook of crime on our island.
