There's a real need for blood, especially in the summer, as many "regular" blood donors are away on vacation. There will be a blood drive this Tuesday, July 25th from Noon to 5 in Ellsworth.

Sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 109, it will be held at the VFW Post, located at 419 Main Street in Ellsworth. You can call the American Red Cross at 1-800-733-2767 to reserve a donation time.
