Red Cross staff

Financial pressures are forcing our local Red Cross branch to reduce expenses. Volunteers will maintain services, including health and safety training and disaster response. The office will be open fewer hours, in a smaller, donated space. Sadly, two valuable employees will be leaving. Ned Russell has coordinated disaster activities and volunteers for three years, and Susan King has managed the branch for over 10 years. Susan and Ned have given tirelessly to the community, far beyond the call of duty. We are very grateful for their service. They will be sorely missed.
