Blood Donation Crisis
Blood donations have plummeted across the country over the past week, as schools, offices and other sites that typically host blood drives shut down to prevent the spread of coronavirus. People practicing “social distancing” are cancelling appointments at hospitals and blood donation centers. According to AABB, individuals are not at risk of contracting coronavirus through the blood donation process or through blood transfusion. Story at More at WAMU
Thanks to all who made the 2019 LVCA Holiday Party a success. A good time was had by all, especially the kids at the craft tables. Parents grateful that glitter and plastic gems enticed our kids away from tables laden with appetizers and sweets.
Due to an increase in demand, Arlington MOW needs volunteer drivers to deliver meals to homebound members of the community. They need volunteers who can commit to one day a month (or more) weekdays from 11:00 am to approximately 12:30 pm.
This week members of the Arlington Strategy Execution Office were spreading mulch in a small park located in Lyon Village at Kirkwood Road and 17th Street. This was a volunteer day for the group and the Arlington Parks Department was finding places where they could be helpful.
We are looking for people interested in serving on the Lyon Village Citizens Association Executive Committee.
