Page 20 • The Branchburg News • May 2011 Sweet Spring Bake Sale & a 10-Gallon Milestone By Grace Gargiulo
Thanks to all who contributed to our Bake Sale at BCMS in April by making a donation or purchas- ing some goodies. The sale’s suc- cess is the result of the generosity of the Branchburg residents. And thanks to Arlene and Alan Adler, co-chairs, and their committee: Joseph Abate, Lillian Sheroke and Angela Schmitt. Your efforts made it happen.
Congratulations to our member, Stanley Godlesky, a blood donor at Somerset Medical Center, who reached the 10 gallon milestone. The blood donated is used by the Medical Center for patients, includ- ing those who undergo surgery, and for life-saving treatments for cancer and certain blood disorders. Thank you, Stan, for contributing the gift of life.

The Somerset County Single Se- nior Women’s Group is planning a 5-day, 4-night trip to Maine – from Sunday, June 12, to Thursday, June 16.
The trip will include tours of Acadia National Park, Kennebunk- port, a Franciscan Monastery, Port- land and Portland Headlight. There will also be stops at the Seashore Trolley Museum, the Prison Store at Thomaston, and the L.L. Bean Outlet.
Stan Godlesky, one of our senior mem- bers who has been donating blood for more than 20 years received a citation and an engraved plaque from Somerset Medical Center. A dinner was held on April 22 honoring those who have do- nated at least one gallon of blood. Stan was one of six people who donated 10 gallons to date. Six others donated five gallons and 12 more donated at least one gallon. Way to go Stan, we’re so proud of you. – photos by Hank Phillips
