Dr. Walter Sisk Memorial Blood Drive

2017 blood drive


The second annual Dr. Walter Sisk Memorial Blood Drive will be hosted by the Bonham Rotary Club and the Texoma Regional Blood Center on Wednesday, January 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The bloodmobile will be in the parking lot of the First United Methodist Church and Family Life Center at 801 Star in Bonham.

Dr. Walter Sisk joined the Bonham Rotary Club in 1961, the same year he started practicing medicine in Bonham. He was an active member in Rotary up until he passed away in late 2015. He even attended the weekly club meeting just a few days before his death.

The Bonham Rotary Club decided last year to honor the memory of this long time member by hosting an annual blood drive each year on or near his birthday. During his lifetime, Dr. Walter saved many lives as a doctor. The Bonham Rotary Club wants to help continue his legacy of saving lives by encouraging blood donations.

Several years ago the Texoma Regional Blood Center presented the program at one of the club’s weekly meetings. The Center was started by local doctors in 1975, which was fourteen years after Sisk started practicing medicine in Bonham. During the question and answer part of the program, Sisk described how fortunate we were to have the center providing blood in the area. He recalled the challenges he faced in getting blood for his patients before the local center was formed.
