A challenge to donate blood

Continue reading below

A novel competition is underway between the Planning Board and the Board of Selectmen. It all began Jan. 27, when Planning Board chairman Paul McAlduff issued a challenge to the selectmen: Which board (and their staff) could donate the most blood during the month of February? McAlduff came up with the idea after hearing about a girl whose heart surgery was delayed due to a shortage of blood last month. McAlduff said he wanted to issue the challenge publicly to help raise awareness about the importance of giving blood, and to remind people to donate if they can. It’s still unclear who will claim victory here, but McAlduff enjoys cooking homemade desserts and said he plans to reward the winning board with a “sweet treat.”
