Lea LaFountain, giving a thumbs-up, was one of several people who gave blood during a drive held in a Children’s Hospital, Boston blood mobile parked at Herrick’s Tavern in Orange on Saturday. The event was coordinated by the Tyler Foundation, which was established by Erik and Heather Plotkin, formerly of Athol. The foundation’s primary purpose is to financially assist families of children with a brain malformation resulting in seizures and who are being treated at either Children’s Hospital or UMASS Medical Center in Worcester. It is named after their son Tyler, who has epilepsy and who has been a patient at both facilities. For more information on the foundation, log onto www.tylerfoundation.org. Photo by Gelinas
