Blood Donation Opportunity   (133,005 Views)


Blood Donation Opportunity

October 23 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00

Donors of all blood types are needed to help ensure a sufficient supply for patients this fall, especially after Hurricane Florence and subsequent flooding forced the cancellation of more than 6,000 blood and platelet donations last month.

How to donate blood

Make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the free American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or for more information. As a thank-you, those who come to donate blood or platelets in October will automatically be entered to win one of five $500 gift cards redeemable at hundreds of merchants. Learn more at RedCrossBlood.org/GoForGoal.

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 identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Blood and platelet donors can save time at their next donation by using RapidPass® to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, before arriving at the blood drive. To get started, follow the instructions at RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass or use the Blood Donor App.

About the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Radium Girls Program  (160,429 Views)


The Radium Dial Painters: Their Fatal Brush with Death

Behind the story of the clock and watch industries’ success, lies a tragic story of employee sacrifice. For a time, little was known about the toxic working conditions of the young women in the dial painting industry. Fortunately, their story was eventually heard. Unfortunately, many of them did not live to see that day. Their story is one of opportunity, broken trust, and the search for truth.

Program: 6:30 p.m.
Location: American Clock & Watch Museum, 100 Maple St., Bristol
Presenter: Colleen Nicastro, Director of Interpretation
Fee: $5 for museum members,$7 for non-members
Light refreshments will be served

Seery Strings presents Barnstar! at the Ingraham House   (75,253 Views)


Seery Strings presents Barnstar! at the Ingraham House

October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Please join Seery Strings in welcoming Barnstar! to the Ingraham House Concert Series!

Barnstar! began as the brainchild of Zachariah Hickman (bassist for Josh Ritter, musical director for Ray Lamontagne) for a local bluegrass supergroup featuring some of Boston’s best musicians and songwriters. Using the familiar tools of the genre—guitar (Mark Erelli), fiddle (Jake Armerding), mandolin (Taylor Armerding) and banjo (Charlie Rose)—Barnstar! forges its own brand of song- based bluegrass, gloriously harmonized and raucously played.

These guys are going to burn it up in our grand foyer! This show is not to be missed.

As always, this is an all ages show.

We ask for a donation of $25 per person and provide delicious food and age-appropriate refreshments throughout the evening.
