Karre Donates 23 Gallons of Blood

Dr. Dale Karre participated in the OHS blood drive held Tues., May 14. Dr. Karre has reached the milestone of 23 gallons. That's 184 units! Dr. Karre related that when he was in Veterinary School the students would type their own blood and send the results to the local hospital. When the hospital needed a specific blood type the school would "get a call" and the student would be paid $25 for his donation. In 1948, after moving to Ord, Valley County Hospital would call him when they needed blood for one of their patients. Later, when the Red Cross started with blood drives sometime in the 1950's, Dr. Karre began more regular donations and would make sure to have it on his calendar so that he could donate before going to work. In the beginning collections were held in the basement of the Methodist Church before moving to the Veteran's Club.

Congratulations Dr. Karre. What a remarkable gift you have given over the years. I still remember our time in Ord (80 - 86) and your giving me and Joann the opportunity to go to the Neb. - OU game.
You are truly showing what a Christian is all about - "giving to others". Thank You!!
