Another successful KSC Event… The Maritime Flea Market & Blood Drive

We had a great turnout for the first ever combo event of a Maritime Flea Market & Blood Drive. The Events Committee Wishes to extend their appreciation to all of the KSC Members and Non-Members who participated in the March 10, 2018 activities. Many people have already asked when we will host another one… for now, the plan is to make it an annual event as the KSC calendar is pretty full. We will let you know if things change and we can squeeze in a second, similar event.

 

The Blood Drive:

We exceeded the goal set by both The Blood Connection and the KSC Events Committee… a total of 27 PINTS were collected!¬†We had an additional 15 people that wanted to donate but were unable to for one reason or another; recent teeth cleaning, a recent illness and having donated blood within the prior 56 days. The Blood Connection gave each donor $20 in Walmart gift cards and as an added thank you, the KSC Events Committee gave them a hat. It was great to see so many people willing to donate their time and blood to support the urgent need in our community. Thank you for your support of the first KSC Blood Drive!

 

The Maritime Flea Market:

There were 18 sellers, both KSC Members and non-members. We had foot traffic that included quite a few local, non-members who came by to see what we had to offer, look for some needed parts and purchased all kinds of good stuff! We had two families request membership applications – one of which even secured a sponsor and set up an interview time with Denny. The event was a lot of fun for everyone involved and was a great way to socialize, find new homes for items and pick up a few things at a bargain price. Thank you for your participation and ongoing support of the KSC Events Committee. As always, thank you to the many volunteers that helped coordinate things both before and during the event.
