RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE • A Red Cross blood drive was held at Neligh’s American Legion, Monday, June 3. Organizers said summer months are the slowest time for blood donations despite a constant demand for blood. Jeremy McConnell, of Neligh, spent a portion of his lunch break from Sargent Irrigation donating to the cause. The donation marks McConnell’s 58th pint.
