Canadian Blood Services is recognizing one of Yorkton’s own for their generosity. Ervin Litzenberger has just given his 100th blood donation, and for this, he’s been invited to a special Gala.
“My first donation was in 1972,” Litzenberger says.
“I tagged along with some customers, grain customers, training in the grain industry, [and] tagged along to Balgonie. Sort of my first donation. Then, my career was spent in small towns, so I didn’t always donate. It was kind of a yearly thing, for a while. Once I moved to Yorkton it became every three months, so to speak, and then every two months. It just mushroomed from there.”
Litzenberger feels good about being recognized for donating blood all these years.
“There was no reason not to do it,” he says.
“I’m proud of it.”
