By Tim Farley, News Editor


Oklahoma Blood Institute needs blood donors to save local lives this May.

Healthy adults, age 16 and older, can give blood at one of the following drives:

Yukon Middle School, Tuesday, May 2, at 7th/8th Grade Pit Area, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Contact Jenah Hamilton at 405-354-5274 X1710.

Canadian Valley Technology Center, Czech Hall Campus, Friday, May 5, in Classroom 1115, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

 El Reno Burger Day, Saturday, May 6, on the Bloodmobile @ Russell & Rock Island,  from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Donors will receive a free “Hero” t-shirt in their choice of spring color: blue, purple or green.

“Each blood donation saves as many as three lives,” said John Armitage, M.D., Oklahoma Blood Institute president and CEO. “Many patients - especially those battling cancer or trauma injuries - need multiple transfusions in a short period of time. Donors are needed every day, since there is no substitute for blood, and it has a very limited time for use.”  [Read More]

Nineteen members of The Surrey Hills Home and Garden Club met recently for a potluck luncheon at the lovely home of Jeanie VanVranken.

Jeanie and her co-hostess and next-door neighbor, Carol Bird, decorated the tables with a festive spring theme by placing a party favor of a packet of seeds and a hand painted garden marker, painted by Jeanie’s granddaughter, at each place setting.

Each participant provided a delicious homemade dish for all to enjoy.  The Garden Club would like to invite its Surrey neighbors to one of their fun and relaxing meetings.  [Read More]
