Press release submitted by Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center



Donor & A Movie Blood Drive
Friday, November 23: 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 24: 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
At the Putnam Museum (in the Palmer Lecture Hall)

All donors who present at this blood drive will receive a ticket to the movie of their choice at the National Geographic Giant Screen Theatre at the Putnam.
In addition, anyone who donates blood with Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center on either November 23 or 24 will be entered into a drawing for a $250 gift card.

Most important, donors who give blood over the Thanksgiving weekend (and every day) will be touching the lives of people right here in our community. Each donation helps as many as three patients in need. A blood fact: Platelets, once of the components of a blood donation, have a shelf life of only 5 days. A 4-day holiday weekend means we need donors to come in on Friday and Saturday to assure a strong blood supply, including platelets, during and after the holiday weekend!

Donors may call me at 563/823-4128 to sign up. They may also log on to www.bloodcenter.org to schedule at appointment for this blood drive, as well as a donation at one of our local donor centers. Walk ins are welcome; appointments are preferred to assure a timely donation process.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
