A very sincere thank you to the people who came to my rescue on July 20 as I walked our mini schnauzer Buffy, on First Street. We were attacked by two large loose dogs. Several people stopped their cars to help. Special thanks to the gentleman from Me & My Friends Restaurant. Extra special thanks to the gentleman who stopped his car and managed to pull the most aggressive dog off. I had to get away from the situation, and he had his daughter run after me to see if I was OK. My faith in humanity has been restored. God bless.
Blood drive success
Thanks for your help in publicizing our very successful month of Inter-Faith Blood Drives. Our blood drive in Pleasanton was the final one in the drives organized by the Oakland Diocese of the Catholic Church and the leadership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Oakland, which included one at the Islamic Society of the East Bay.
Nearly 1,500 pints of blood were donated during the month of July, and our drive was one of the more successful with 72 pints donated. Unfortunately the drive in Menlo Park was cancelled due to an auto accident in which several Red Cross workers going to the event were injured.
The Red Cross leaders were very pleased with our drive and workers were kept busy throughout the day. Thanks to all who helped so much to make this drive a big success and for giving the gift of life.
Ken Mano, Inter-Faith Blood Drive Coordinator
