Give Blood

Tomorrow is Murph’s 1st Annual Memorial Blood Drive honoring Patrick in the ballroom of Decatur Country Club from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Please come out and support this event! If you are not in the area, you can donate in his name at any LifeSouth Center. Since his accident, the response (both blood and monetary donations) has been so amazing that here is now the Patrick Murphree Bell in the Decatur donor center and they named their blood drive trailer “Murph”! They are really promoting the donation of platelets, which are the most-needed of all blood components and are essential for blood clotting routinely needed by trauma patients, burn victims and cancer patients.
Also, Jody is working hard to establish an Annual Memorial Golf Tournament, which will fund a scholarship set up through the University of Alabama for a Decatur High graduate. Please support him in this effort by playing or sending donations. The tournament is set for June 28th at Point Mallard Golf Course. We have set up another blog for tournament information.
