You are going out to the Reston Festival anyway, right, and while there you will see the good folks at Nice Mirror, and do the good deed of entering yourself in the bone marrow donor system. On the way out there, please stop on Route 50 in Fairfax at the Kena Shriners to give a pint of blood. We have a blood drive there about once per quarter, it seems, all run by the Red Cross, so stop on by and give the gift of life.

If you have never given blood before, you should know that you don’t leave simply having saved a life. In this case, you leave with a great breakfast, prepared by my friend Chef Don. Free food and hero status – can you think of a better combination? The blood drive will be operating from 9-12 on Saturday.

Learn more about the Shriners and tell them Carl sent you. They are great folks and Chef Don will treat you right.

Help Kids by Enjoying a Day on the Links

(4/365) :: Golf Thursdays by chispita_666
I just got an email about a golf tournament to support the Kena Shrine Transportation Fund, which provides free transportation for kids to get to the Shriner’s Hospital in Philadelphia. The wife/husband doesn’t like you playing golf? Just say it’s for the kids. How can they say no to the kids?

Read on:

The 15th Annual Kena Shrine Club Golf Tournament will be conducted next Tuesday, May 19th at Penderbrook Golf Course in Fairfax. This annual fund raiser golf outing will be a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m., with a four man/ woman format playing Captain’s Choice/Best Ball. Plan to arrive not later than 8:00 a.m., pay fee in snack bar, get cart assignments and hole numbers.

After a continental breakfast in the club house and 18 holes of golf, we will enjoy a buffet lunch, award single and group prizes and a 50/50. The outing is all inclusive for a $50.00 fee per golfer. If you wish to play in the tournament at Penderbrook, let me know as soon as possible.

And, no, you don’t have to be a Mason or Shriner to play, although I am sure lots of folks will be happy to answer your questions about these organizations.
