Blood drive and potato planning


The Oldham American Legion Auxiliary will host their annual fall blood drive on Thurs., Oct. 14 from 1 – 6 p.m. at the Oldham Gym.

When it comes to donating blood, every drop counts! Every day people like you need blood: students, teachers, family and friends! Blood cannot be manufactured; the only source are generous volunteers! Living through a pandemic can lead to many uncertainties but one thing we are sure of is that the need for blood never ceases.

Vitalant is offering COVID-19 antibody testing with each complete blood draw to help find future convalescent plasma donors. Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 years old but minors will need a parent’s signature.

If you have any questions or interest in donating life-giving blood on Thurs., Oct. 14, please call Sandy at 482-8414.

Other news: The next Potato Day Committee meeting is Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Oldham Saloon. All are welcome to attend. The MORE (MAKING OLDHAM RAMONA EXCELLENT) group has their annual craft show in Ramona Nov. 13 at 9 a.m.
