Mark VanHeyst of Emo was among the first district residents to give the “gift of life” on Tuesday during the first day of the Canadian Blood Services’ spring donor clinic at Fort Frances High School. CBS spokesperson Harvey Heather said 365 donors turned out for the two-day clinic, which wrapped up last night, who gave 314 units of blood—17 units over their target. At this time, CBS is not planning to hold a fall clinic here, with April 10-11 tentatively scheduled for its next one.
