Donate blood through the Red Cross in final weeks of summer
The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help prevent a blood shortage.
Blood donations often decline in August as final summer vacations are planned and back-to-school activities ramp up. On average, during the summer months, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed.
Donations are needed now to help ensure blood is available for patients in need. Donors with types AB, O negative, B negative and A negative blood are especially encouraged to donate. Plasma from type AB donors can be transfused to patients of any blood type, as can type O negative blood. Type B negative and A negative blood can be transfused to Rh-positive or negative patients. These are the most in demand blood types and are in constant need.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities:
Aug. 30: 7 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., Baker's Supermarke, 3614 Twin Creek
Aug. 29: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Texas Roadhouse, 7302 Olson Drive

NINETEENTH ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE
Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the Nineteenth ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE. This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 11, at 2:30 PM, downstairs in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse. In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice. There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.
Contestants can pre-register on line: (http://www.greenblattandseay.com/schoolhouse_fiddling_bee_preregistration.shtml).
Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students, and $1.00 for children. Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free. The contest will be followed by a light snack and an acoustic jam session.
Internationally acclaimed fiddler, Julie Lyonn Lieberman, will be giving fiddle workshops in November in the Old Avoca (Nebraska) Schoolhouse. On Friday, November 13, starting at 7PM, the subjects will be "Six Approaches to Jamming", and "Modal Improvisation". On Saturday, November 14, starting at 9 AM, the topics will be "Gypsy Jazz" and "One Tune, Five Styles". These workshops are appropriate for any string player who desires to open their ears to new ways of making music.
JULIE LYONN LIEBERMAN has helped develop the alternative string field over the last thirty-five+ years through her work as an educator, author, radio producer, composer, recording artist, journalist, and performer. Her former students have toured with Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Cyndi Lauper, Celine Dion, Billy Joel, and one of her former students plays regularly on Dancing with the Stars.
Pre-registration is required. For more information, and to register, click on the following link:
