SPRINGFIELD COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE

Thankyou

test

On Sweethearts Day it was a “Sweetheart” of a day for the community. We collected 61 units of Blood which is a record for Springfield. I want to thank all who took time to donate or attempted to donate. Also thanks to the local merchants and fire department for their help in this effort. Once again, thanks from the Red Cross and the St. Joseph Knights of Columbus, sponsors. Please mark your calendars for April 17th the next drive in Springfield.

Donors urged to help the American Red Cross maintain blood supply

  The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to help ensure a sufficient blood supply for patients by giving blood this February.

 During the winter months, inclement winter weather and seasonal illnesses can keep regular donors from giving blood. Healthy donors of all blood types are needed to help maintain an adequate blood supply for patients in their own communities as well as areas where donors were unable to give due to severe winter weather. Individuals with types O, AB, B negative and A negative blood are especially needed.

Donor Loretta Brandon knows how important it is to have a readily available blood supply. Her late husband required transfusions from generous strangers multiple times for health conditions. She gives blood as often as she can. “Every time I give blood, I am filled with a sense of gratitude for all I have and for the fact that I can share with others,” she said.

Make an appointment to help maintain an adequate blood supply for patients in need this winter by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Upcoming blood donation opportunities:

Lofte Annual Meeting and Volunteer Recognition

Sunday February 28, 2:00pm

The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley has announced that it will hold its annual meeting and volunteer recognition event on Sunday, February 28 at 2pm.  2016 marks the 40th season for the theater and this year is being touted as the “Ruby Jubilee.”  

The Board of Directors invites anyone who has volunteered their time (ushers, parkers, actors, set-builders, etc.) made a donation or even attended a show over the years.  This is a family-friendly event and children are welcome.  Refreshments will be served.

Lofte Artistic Director Kevin Colbert says, “The memories of the last forty years are like a tidal wave, so many people, so many stories and so much history.  However, my greatest satisfaction is seeing the family and friends of a performer rush the stage after a show and tell an actor how much they enjoyed a performance.  It’s a feeling of self worth that can last someone a lifetime.”

Lofte Treasurer Ken Patry will present financials.  Ticket Booth Manager, Jean Colbert will give an attendance report.  Elections will be held for board vacancies.  Kevin Colbert will review 2015 and present previews of 2016 and 2017 seasons.  The Lofte will also acknowledge the three most valued volunteers for the past year.

On Thursday, we will be mostly playing tunes by ear, so feel free to bring your recording gadgets.  Sheet music versions of the tunes will be provided for you by the end of the day, just in case your ears need the help.

On Friday, we will be mostly jamming, modulating, singing, dancing, experimenting, sharing, and playing fiddle related instruments.

One day:                $60.00
