GIVES A GALLON - The Syracuse regional blood bank has made 10 visits to
Walton. On eight of them, MRS. KENNETH GRABY of Beerston has been present.
At her last visit, she gave her eighth pint of blood, making her a member of
the select ‘gallon circle.' For her blood donations she will get a special
pin. Said MRS. GRABY, ‘Six years ago, my husband lost his arm and was given
three pins of blood, I think it's my duty to give.' Standing beside her are
MISS JOAN McANDREW of the Syracuse regional blood bank and MRS. HERBERT
BUERGER, nurses' aid, of Walton. One of the times she was unable to give,
MRS. GRABY had been given a dose of penicillin and it was thought inadvisable
for her to give.
