Can I remove extrude a hole into a lofted surface?

I am done a basic loft operation to join 2 rectangular sketches. Haven't been exposed to the lofting feature for very long. 

Here is the link to the file: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/b728c1f8845c5bb7dda901b1/w/438dac0115cbdb48f0e7ee87/e/3c694979e04e21914ad9535a.

PS: It would be great to search for a topic and have the video list what elements are covered. I have been through the Fundamental's and the presenter goes so fast clicking here-n-there that I get lost, frustrated and more confused.

    Your answer is in the tooltip - add the hole as a separate feature afterward.

    As in another sketch? "Used" the points of the circles and the circles. I removed what I thought were just the circles, it removed the entire sketch leaving the circles as solids. I found a reference to this in the Forum, but it was from about 3 or 4 years ago. Did not really understand the process so I probably was doing something incorrectly.
