The Mount Vernon American Legion Auxiliary is sponsoring a blood drive on Thursday, May 31, from 12:15 to 6 p.m. at the Mount Vernon High school.

Potential donors can contact Roberta Olsen at 236-5269 for an appointment or go to and make your appointment on line.

Remember that hero status isn't reserved only for those brave men and women who rush into burning buildings or step into the front lines of war. "There's a hero in all of us," said Lori Liebman, donor recruitment director of United Blood Services, this area's non-profit community blood service provider. "Ordinary people are saving lives every day. They do it while they are on lunch break or while they are running errands. They have found the hero in themselves by donating blood."

All volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. If you are 16 or younger, you must have a signed permission from a parent or guardian. A picture ID is required of all donors.

A citywide rummage sale will be held from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 2. Contact Rhonda Deinert at 236-5388 or Jen Block at 236-5549 to be added to that list.
