      AgStar Announces 2017 Annie’s Project Schedule
      Women invited to expand farming expertise through six-week program

      AgStar Financial Services, ACA, is again hosting Annie’s Project, a nationally-known workshop series dedicated to strengthening women’s role in the modern farm enterprise. Sessions will be offered in seven locations in AgStar’s Minnesota service area over the coming months. The first session starts in St. James on January 10.

      Annie’s Project connects women who are passionate for agriculture and helps them develop a strong and well-rounded understanding of their farm and the agriculture industry. The program curriculum examines five areas of risk, including production, financial, marketing, legal and human resources. The program is offered as part of the AgStar Edge, a resource for enhancing industry knowledge through online resources and in-person educational events.

      “AgStar offers Annie’s Project as an opportunity for women to learn about the common areas of risk in farming and prepare them to make business decisions,” said Amy Durand, AgStar Edge Project Manager.

      Launched in 2003, Annie’s Project has successfully reached more than 8,000 farmers and ranchers in 30 states. AgStar began offering the program in 2014.

      The 2017 Annie’s Project schedule is as follows:
      St. James – Tuesdays, from January 10 to February 14
      Rochester ­– Thursdays, from January 12 to February 16
      Worthington – Thursdays, from January 26 to March 2

    1. Blood Donation Opportunities Springfield & St. Peter
      8:15 am – 2:15 pm

      Blood Donation Opportunities

      During Red Cross Month in March, the American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to join in its lifesaving mission by giving blood.
      Since 1943, every U.S. president has designated March as Red Cross Month to recognize how the Red Cross helps people across the country and around the world. Red Cross Month is a celebration of supporters, who are the face of the Red Cross in their communities and bring hope to people facing emergencies.
      The Red Cross depends on blood donor heroes across the nation to collect enough blood to meet the needs of patients at approximately 2,600 hospitals nationwide. Donors of all blood types, especially type O, are needed to help those rely on blood products.
      Make an appointment to become a hero to patients in need by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
      Blood donors can now save time at their next donation by using RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, prior to arriving at the blood drive. To get started and learn more, visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass and follow the instructions on the site.
