Louisville Wednesday Newsletter - July 23, 2014
From the Good Times Bar
"We would like to thank the Louisville, Plattsmouth, Springfield, Weeping Water, Manley, and Avoca Volunteer Fire Departments along with the Cass County Sheriffs Dept. for their quick response this morning. They did a tremendous job and we couldn't ask for anything better. We are very proud of that brotherhood and to be a part of it.
The fire was contained to the apartment upstairs but the bar and other apartment sustained heavy smoke and water damage. Clean-up is already underway and we will be back open as soon as possible.
Thank you for all of your thoughts and support.
~ Cory and Mandi Chubb

The American Red Cross calls on eligible donors with all blood types to help maintain a sufficient blood supply this summer
OMAHA, Neb. (July 15, 2014) — The American Red Cross encourages all eligible blood donors to make an appointment to donate blood soon to help prevent a shortage.
During the summer months, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed to meet the needs of patients. Vacations and summer activities are among the reasons regular donors may not find the time to give. But, patients don’t get a vacation from needing blood – the need is constant.
As a national network, the Red Cross has a unique responsibility to help ensure blood is available for patients whenever and wherever it is needed. By donating blood or platelets through the Red Cross, donors may be helping patients in their community or patients across the nation.
Red blood cells have a shelf life of only 42 days and platelets just five days, so they must constantly be replenished.
To learn more and make an appointment to donate blood, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities:
Aug. 9 from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. at Louisville High School, 202 W. Third St. in Louisville
Aug. 10 from noon to 4:15 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 16220 Highway 75 in Plattsmouth
Aug. 11 from 1 - 7 p.m. at Town Hall, 623 House St. in Avoca
We especially hope that the classified ads will be used to post Jobs, look for positions, and post special events, birthdays, church events and Garage Sales.
