On what would have been Nicholas's 30th birthday, Tuesday, February 12, 2019 from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM—the Cape Cod Hospital Blood Bank will host an all day long 12 hour special Community Blood Drive in honor of fallen United States Marine Corporal Nicholas G. Xiarhos of Yarmouth. This will be the third and final blood drive in the series and all blood collected will be added together in an attempt to reach our goal of 240 units collected this year in memory of Nicholas. Nicholas G. Xiarhos, a Class of 2006 graduate of Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, died on the battlefield at age 21 in Garmsir, Afghanistan while going to the rescue of his fellow Marines in combat on July 23, 2009 and this blood drive is conducted annually in February in memory of his birthday February 12, 1989.
