Next week, it is hoped more people will roll up their sleeves and donate to saving lives.

The Elliot Lake Blood Donor Clinic takes place next Tuesday, September 26 from 4-8 at the Collins Hall. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we are honouring childhood cancer survivors, warriors and remembering those childhood heroes who lost their lives!
Forty-four spots are still open for donation appointments.

One-in-two Canadians will need blood at some point in their life, yet less than 4% of the population donates.
Go to on line to book an appointment or call 1 888 2 DONATE.

Still with the story, Espanola will also honour Childhood Cancer Awareness Month with the raising of the flag today at noon at Espanola Town Hall.
