To mark America’s independence and do your part to save your fellow countrymen, why not create a new lifesaving tradition this July?


Blood donations always dip in the summer, since blood donors are busy with vacations and outdoor fun.


Make it a tradition to donate blood with your friends or family in July! Schedule an appointment at the Slater & Sheldahl Communities Blood Drive, Thursday, July 12, 3-6:30 p.m., Slater United Methodist Church, 401 Story St.
