Peace Lutheran sets blood drive for Tuesday
Peace Lutheran Church will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9, in the church fellowship hall.
Jo Pruett, spokesperson, said prospective donors may call 1-800-733-2767 to schedule an appointment or may do so on-line at www.redcross.org.
Those donating will have a chance to win a $250 gas card giveaway, she said.
Peace Lutheran Church is located at 303 Meadow Drive.
August begins with 109, 108!
Here’s a word to strike fear into the hearts of Texas residents.
Hot as July was in Rockdale, with 100-degree readings on 29 of its 31 days, August is usually the hottest month and it started out that way with back-to-back readings of 108 and 109 at KRXT-FM.
There have now been 51 highs of 100 or greater this summer and Rockdale’s all-time record of 62 will fall within two weeks unless some unexpected relief is in store.
All-time high of 113 was logged in 2000.
