On February 6, the American Red Cross held a blood drive. Several residents participated in donating blood to help maintain adequate blood supply for patients in need. The blood drive was hosted by the Holy Rosary Church.
Amelia Schachtsiek, of Monroe City gave blood and stated, “Thanks to Holy Rosary for holding the event for the blood drive. Thanks to the patient Red Cross employee who took my blood. Also thanks to the Lake Gazette for holding this competition.” The Lake Gazette held a selfie competition. The participants had to send a picture of themselves giving blood to be entered into a drawing for a $20 gift certificate to H&Co. The winner of the competition by random drawing was Nicole Harris.
