 Reminder- To Donate the Gift of Life-  Our friend Colin Riccobon of the American Red Cross asked me to pass this along to all of you-
DG Yuengling & Son and the American Red Cross invite you to donate blood on May 23rd in honor of our military men and women from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm
All presenting donors receive a free Yuengling Pint Glass and T-Shirt.
