Cherokee County Herald - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Read­ers who re­ceive their copies of the HER­ALD on Tues­day af­ter­noon will want to take note of an im­por­tant event at the ROC (Recre­ational Outreach Cen­ter — Ch­es­nut 411 By­pass at High­way 9). From 10 a.m.3 p. m. on the 11th, the Amer­i­can Red Cross will be con­duct­ing a blood drive in the ROC’s first floor meet­ing room.

Blood do­na­tion is ur­gently needed through­out the na­tion. All el­i­gi­ble donors are urged to do­nate! In­di­vid­u­als of age 17 and above who are in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds may do­nate ev­ery 56 days.

The do­na­tion process usu­ally takes fewer than 35 or 40 min­utes — of­ten less.

Cherokeans have a rep­u­ta­tion for an­swer­ing the call for blood. Let’s do so again Tues­day!

Two spe­cial events are slated for the Chero­kee County His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum on Thurs­day, the 13th. Chicken salad with all the trim­mings will be served from 11: 30 a. m.1p. m. Plates may be picked up at the mu­seum — or can be de­liv­ered to busi­nesses with mul­ti­ple or­ders. Ticket buy­ers are also wel­come to dine in the Mu­seum Cafe — there is space for a dozen peo­ple at a time.
