Red Cross Saving Lives

Those who want to know more about the American Red Cross are invited to a "Saving Lives" event this Tuesday in Washington. Spokeswoman Jennifer Pickar says information will be available on how people can get involved in volunteer programs. Pickar says the Red Cross can utilize volunteer's existing skills as well. So any retired police officers, EMT's or firefighters can be of great value. The "Saving Lives" event will be this Tuesday from 6:30 to 7:30 at Washington State Bank.
