The annual 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive, organized by Jerry Cummings and the American Red Cross netted a record number of donations this year. With donors coming from Robinson Oil, EMQ and even Campbell’s Lions Club, we were able to cross over the 50 pints mark. Several “walk-in” clients also helped us reach the record level of donations. Club member Neil Reid, in photo, was the ?rst member of our club to donate on Friday, and was the 2nd appointment of the morning. Other club members also were on hand to donate, including ?rst time blood donor, Delbar Jahanian. (See photos on page 2.) The whole process takes a little over an hour, including reading the educational information, going over your health history, actual donation (about 10 minutes) and then the rest time in the canteen. The ARC even gives you juice and cookies! And, you have the knowledge that you are helping to save lives right here in the Bay Area.

Don is a City of Sunnyvale Public Safety Of?cer, and as such was deployed to combat the Butte County Fire in Northern California. Even though Don is an experienced ?re ?ghter in an urban setting, he relayed to the club that he learned a great deal about ?ghting ?res in the wild. In some cases, letting a ?re burn was the best strategy, Don learned. Don’s crew left Santa Clara County the day after the Butte ?re started and while in Butte County also assisted in putting out a local ?re in Oroville. ??? Blood Drive is this Friday. Be a Donor!

Mr. Hahn related stories from the early days of the Sharks franchise at the Cow Palace in South San Francisco and of the excitement of moving to the brand new San Jose Arena in 1993. The “Shark Tank” has been home to the Sharks ever since. Randy also reminded the group of some of the outstanding moments of Sharks history, as when Jamie Baker scored the winning goal in game 7 of the ?rst round of playoffs against the mighty Detroit Red Wings, eliminating them and catapulting the San Jose Sharks into the national headlines. Randy was also nice enough to bring some Sharks memorabilia to raf?e off to the crowd. Shown in this photo are Sharks fans Jerry and Patti Cummings along with Randy Hahn.
