    1. RED CROSS BLOOD DONATIONS
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      Springfield
      8/29/2017: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Mayo Clinic Health System, 625 N. Jackson Ave.

      The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help overcome a chronic summer blood shortage.

      In August, regular donors may delay giving as final summer vacations are planned and back-to-school activities ramp up. To fully meet the needs of hospital patients in the coming days and weeks, donations are urgently needed from new and current donors. Those who donated blood earlier this summer may be eligible to donate again. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days, and Power Red cells can be donated every 112 days.

      As a special thank you, those who come out to give blood or platelets with the Red Cross now through Aug. 31 will be emailed a $5 Target eGiftCard™.*

      Appointments can be scheduled by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). To help reduce wait times, donors are encouraged to make appointments and complete the RapidPass online health history questionnaire at redcrossblood.org/RapidPass.

    1. Brown County Historical Society Annual Holiday Open House (all-day)
      Nov 24

      The Brown County Historical Society will host its annual holiday open house at the
      museum. This year the BCHS will display “The Menzel Village” for Christmas. The
      village was donated by Louise Fritsche in 1983 and has been viewed and enjoyed
      by all who see it ever since.

      Louise and Walter Menzel created a Christmas village and invited the
      neighborhood children in to see it. This was the beginning of the Menzel Village.
      Louise Fritsche began collecting the figurines in 1937. Most were made in this
      country, but some were bought on the Menzel’s trip to Germany and Switzerland.
      One ceramic German village is more than 100 years old and other villages have
      the buildings lighted inside.

      Stop in and warm up before or after the Parade of Lights. Get in the holiday spirit
      with acoustic Christmas music provided by Lee Weber and hot and cold apple
      cider and cookies served from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

      Admission is free all day!
