Marietta to sponsor Red Cross blood drive Dec. 7 STUDENTS WITH BETTER GRADES The hustle and bustle of the holi- days is here. As you make your lists of errands to run, food to cook and gifts to buy, the Amerian Red Cross reminds eligible blood donors that they can help a patient in need in under an hour. The Marietta American Legion and Auxiliary #156 will be sponsoring a Red Cross blood drive on Monday, Dec. 7 at the Marietta Senior Center from 2-7 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome. For an appointment call Cathy Harstad at 320-668-2168. 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 identifi- cation are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors younger than 19 years also have to meet certain height and weight requirements. "This holiday season, take a moment to reflect on your gift of good health and make an appointment to donate blood," said CEO Geoffrey Kaufman of North Central Blood Services. "It may not cost anything, but your blood donation can give patients hope, a simple thing that means so much to someone in need.' The blood supply is particularly vulnerable throughout the holiday season because donors are traveling tO see family and friends. Winter weather can also affect the ability of eligible individuals to donate blood. Giving blood now can help ensure a sufficient blood supply throughout the season. Minnesota National Farmers will meet in Sauk Centre PEOPLE WHO READ NEWSPAPERS ARE It all starts with Newspapers i iiii i i ii Sweet Corn Silage Available Now Kiln Dry Sawdust for Dairy dllltttD ............ i ................. [ ili[lil'l ................. The annual state convention of the Min.nesota National Farmers Organization will be held this Saturday, Dec. 5 at the Lynx Golf Course near Sauk Centre. This is a new location for NFO's annual meet- ing, two miles south of Sauk Centre along Highway 71. Registration starts at 9 a.m. and State President Joe Neaton of Watertown will call the meeting at 9:30 a.m. The keynote speaker in the afternoon session will be Brad Rach, head of the national dairy department, who is well known for his efforts the past few years in trying to get major dairy cooperatives across the country to come together to establish a fair price for milk, along with a two-tier milk marketing system. Milk prices have been extremely low the past year or so, while costs have gone up for dairy farmers, an issue that is sure to take up consider- able time at the state convention, Other speakers will include Terry Nelson, director of the Upper Midwest region, covering NFO's grain programs; and Bob Hendrickson, discussing the organiZa- tion's livestock marketing programs, including the joint livestock market- ing program with Minnesota Farmer's Union. Carmen Fernholz, an organic farmer from Madison, and an officer in OFARM, the Organic Farmers Agency for Relationship Marketing, will report on organic grain sales dur- ing the past year. Paul Sobocinski, Wabasso, Second District NFO president as well as a leader in the Land Stewardship Project, will give a legislative report. After a noon lunch, Resolutions Chairman Mark Rohr of Bluffton will give his report and ask delegates to approve a number of resolutions per- taining tO agricultural bargaining as well as legal and political issues. Several representatives from the Minnesota Future Farmers of America (FFA), will attend the con- v ention and give presentations. There will be a silent auction of pies with proceeds being donated to a local food shelf. All women attending are encouraged to bring their best home- made pie. There will also be door prizes and a quilt auction.
