History of the Masonic Blood Donors Committee

In the address to the 103rd Annual Communications of Grand Lodge in 1958, the Late M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn formed a Special Committee called The Blood Donor's Committee. The terms of reference were; "The purpose of the committee is to assist agencies working in this field and to keep identified with their wonderful work." The task of this committee is to ensure that all Masons know about the work of Canadian Blood Services and to encourage the giving of blood. It also compiles statistics from every lodge for presentation to Grand Lodge. It is important therefore that each lodge obtains accurate statistics as to the number of donations by members, friends and their families. The statistics assembled by the lodge are gathered together by the District Chairman and then forwarded to the Grand Lodge Chairman. --The Masonic Manual

You should be a Blood Donor

Healthy people between the ages of 17 and 60 (up to 71 if a person is a regular donor) can donate blood every 56 days. It usually takes about one hour to be registered at the clinic, donate blood, rest, take refreshments and be on your way. Giving blood affects one very little, beyond a well earned feeling of personal satisfaction. Be a Blood Donor Today!!!
