43rd Army Band Concert 2016

VETERANS CONCERT

Enjoy an evening of FREE, LIVE Music! The Nebraska National Guard’s 43rd Army Band will be performing at Urban Park, Springfield, Nebraska on Wednesday, July 6, 2016 @ 7:00 p.m.

          The 43rd Army Band is commanded by Chief Warrant Officer Brian Anderson and consists of citizen soldiers who bring a wide variety of skills, talents and longevity to the unit. These soldiers hold a variety of civilian jobs and skills that contribute a great deal to the Band’s success. This group meets one weekend a month and 15 days during the summer to rehearse and fulfill military training requirements.

          The 43rd Army Band is the Nebraska National Guard’s musical ambassadors performing at a variety of community and military events throughout the state. During annual training the 43rd Army Band either replaces a full-time Army band on an active Army installation or supports local communities and recruiters.  

          The Colonel George S. Howard “Citation of Musical Excellence” is awarded to active duty, reserve, or national guard bands by the John Philip Sousa Foundation. Even though this is an annual award, military bands are only considered for this award every three years. The 43rd Army Band leads all active and reserve component bands with eight consecutive citations spanning 24 years of musical excellence.

Bring your lawn chairs, bug spray, and if you need assistance we are here to help!

BLOOD DRIVE THANK YOU

Although we did not get close to our goal, myself and the Red Cross want to thank all who donated and made the attempt to donate. We collected 34 units, which is good at this busy time of the year. As usual, I want to thank all in community who help make this happen and a special thanks to my neighbor Mike who help finish the drive for me in order for me to get on a family vacation earlier.
Please mark your Calendars for the next drive Sunday Sept. 18th.

Thanks Ralph & the Red Cross

Red Cross

The American Red Cross has issued an emergency call for blood and platelets, urging all eligible donors to give now to replenish an extremely low summer blood supply.

Blood donations have fallen short of hospital needs for the past few months, resulting in about 39,000 fewer donations than what’s needed, as well as a significant draw down of the overall Red Cross blood supply. In addition, the Independence Day holiday may have caused many regular donors to postpone donations due to vacation plans. A recent Red Cross poll revealed that more than 75 percent of donors surveyed indicated vacation plans this summer, many of them occurring the weeks before and after July 4.

“Right now, blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in, which is why we are making this emergency request for donations,” said Anna Sanderson, Donor Recruitment Director of the Midwest Blood Services Region. “Donations are urgently needed now to meet the needs of hospital patients in the coming days and weeks. If you’ve thought about giving blood and helping to save lives, now is the time to do it. It’s the blood donations on the shelves that help save lives when an emergency occurs.”

How to Help

To schedule an appointment to donate, use the free Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). The Red Cross is extending hours at many donation sites to allow for more donors to make an appointment to give. Donation appointments and completion of a RapidPass online health history questionnaire are encouraged to avoid longer wait times. Donors with all blood types are needed.

Those unable to give can still help by encouraging others to give through a SleevesUp virtual blood drive at redcrossblood.org/sleevesup, giving of their time through volunteerism or making a financial donation to support Red Cross humanitarian work across the country and around the world.

Who Blood Donations Help

Every two seconds in the United States blood and platelets are needed to respond to patient emergencies, including accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant procedures, and patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease. The Red Cross must collect approximately 14,000 blood and platelet donations every day for patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide.

Because of generous donors, the Red Cross is able to provide blood products to patients like 11-year-old Mae Rainey, who needs regular blood transfusions as part of her treatment for a blood disorder.

“I am very grateful for the opportunities that the Red Cross has given us to get her to her healthiest state,” said Caleb Rainey, Mae’s older brother.

Watch Mae’s story to learn how blood donations can make a lifesaving difference.
