    PACC Blood Bank

    Good Samaritan Hospital, Hershey Medical Center, Pinnacle Health Systems, Carlisle Regional

    Hospital, Ephrata Community Hospital, Hanover Hospital and several other area hospitals.

    What do they all have in common???

    They are all served by the Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank for their blood needs. Perhaps a loved one, a

    neighbor or a friend was admitted to one of these medical facilities, and it is most likely they .1 out of 7

    do.received several units of life saving blood during their hospital stay. PACC Palmyra-A Caring Community

    sponsors a local Blood Bank and Unity Church is a long time supporting PACC member. So if you are able and

    willing to be a life saver with your blood, please consider joining the hundreds of your Palmyra area neighbors

    that make a blood donation throughout the year. Its easy and only takes about an hour of your time to be that

    life saving neighbor. If you have questions, please contact Ron Fouche at 838-2569 or 838-6336 Extension106.

    Thank you for your support and blood!!!

    At some point, we all experience adversity in our lives.

    The question is: how do we handle it?

    In this inspirational workshop, Janet Rozzi, a featured author

    in the book No Mistakes: How You Can Change Adversity into

    Abundance, will discuss what happens when your world view

    shifts, and you begin to live like everything that happens to

    you is only for your highest good!

    Do you feel stressed out, overwhelmed or frustrated right

    now? Are you exhausted from overcommitting yourself?

    Have you lost yourself in the role of parent or caregiver?

    Perhaps you feel a bit numb, just going through the motions

    and trying to keep up with daily life?

    Join us to learn how to re-energize your spirit, do more of

    what you love, get back into the flow of joy, and bring more

    spiritual mojo into your life! Hardcover books will be avail-

    able at $15.00 each, with $5.00 from each book donated to

    the Unity Church of Palmyra. Book signing available after

    the workshop.
