Lyons resident, and all-round-good-guy, Clark Hodge wants the community to know that, “This’ll be the third year ‘Chase the Music’ will be sponsoring a blood drive on Easter Sunday! And, we’re teaming with Craig (Ferguson at the Planet) and Sam (Tallent of Higher Ground

Ministry International), again to coordinate it at the Planet right along all of their Easter festivities. So, should be another success!”

The blood drive will take place in Lyons on Easter Sunday, April 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., on the grounds of Planet Bluegrass. This year we need forty-two donors to maximize the bus’ utilization, and to tell the world that we’re "Lyons Hearted." Bonfils now takes donors as young as 16! Although 16- and 17- year olds do need the signed permission of their parent. 

New this year, we have a bus that supports “Power Red” donations. These donations take twice the number of red blood cells, returning other components back to the donor. It only takes an extra fifteen minutes, but doubles your donation impact! We only have a few slots for that, so, if you’re interested, please call Clark at the number below. 

It’s important to make an appointment for all blood donations. To do so, please either visit the registration website:, or call (303) 362-2300). If you have questions about your eligibility to give, their website:, has all the information. For questions (or to sign up for “Power Red”), please contact Clark Hodge on (303) 859.3321, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
