red cross

There simply aren’t enough people giving blood, and a new American Red Cross survey finds that widespread misconceptions about blood donation may be contributing to a shrinking blood donor population.

The Red Cross is joining an international movement as it launches the Missing Types campaign to combat this trend, calling for new blood donors and those who haven’t given in a while to help fill the gaps and ensure lifesaving blood remains available for patients. During the campaign, the letters A, B and O – the main blood groups – are disappearing from brand logos, social media pages, signs and websites to draw attention to the critical role of every blood donor.

You can join the #MissingType movement by encouraging the public to give before the letters A, B and O are missing from hospital shelves.

Click on the RED CROSS above to find out where you can donate blood. If you see a friend or family's area listed, let them know that they can donate, too!

2nd ANNUAL FUN RUN FUNDRAISER
for 
MURRAY FIRE DEPT 

Donations for prizes are needed for the top run finishers in male, female and youth categories. 
Ideas would be gift cards or monies to purchase awards or prizes.

Kids, ask your group, Scouts, 4-H, church youth group, or just a bunch of your friends to volunteer to cheer the runners on! 
It is a 'hilly' run so runners appreciate the encouragement!

Food and beverages are needed to supply the hungry racers after the race.

Also, can we get any volunteers to set up and tear down the course with cones, tables and water, etc.?

Spread the word by posting to your social pages and sharing with friends and family!

If you want to be part of this event in any way, please contact Theresa McClatchey at bradandtheresa@gmail.com or 402-651-6068.

Thanks so much!

MUSICAL INSTRUMENT LENDING PROGRAM

The Great Plains Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association has a wonderful instrument lending program, so please share this information with folks that you know. Here is the information from Jim Wood:

"We are in full swing looking for kids ages 5 to 16 who want to learn to play a bluegrass/old time instrument! 
The instruments we are lending include guitar, fiddles of different sizes, banjo, and mandolin, and have recently been gifted with a fine Dobro, thanks to Doug Van Horn. 
These instruments may be borrowed for a year as long as the learner has a mentor from our music association. 
The mentor will be selected by the student and parent. 
This mentor will give the Instrument lending committee a report of progress every three months."

If you wish to get an application to this Lending program, please contact Jim Wood at 402-397-4673 or jkwood@unomaha.edu.
