Legion offers shooting course

Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post 243 of Plymouth is offering the Basic Marksmanship Course to young shooting enthusiasts in the area.

This is the fourth consecutive year the program is being offered by the Plymouth Legion Post. The program is open to all youth ages 12-18.

The course will be held weekly beginning Monday, Sept. 17 and continuing each Monday night for eight weeks. The program uses .177-cal. air rifles provided by the Legion. Targets and ammunition are included in the registration cost of $20.

The curriculum will include gun safety, safe handling and use of firearms taught by NRA certified instructors. A certificate of completion will be issued at the end of the course.

Anyone interested in enrolling or more information should contact DuWayne Wieck at (920) 627-1879 by Sept. 3.

Blood drive Sept. 12 at Salem

The Plymouth Woman’s Club and Salem United Church of Christ will host the Plymouth Community Blood Drive Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 11:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Salem United Church of Christ, 217 Salem Drive, Plymouth.

Give the ultimate gift – the gift of life. Make an appointment today by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit

The American Red Cross is encouraged by a boost in donations since the organization issued an emergency appeal for blood donors. However, additional donations are needed to ensure an adequate supply is available through the end of the summer.

“We are humbled by the generosity of the many blood donors in Plymouth and the surrounding Sheboygan County communities who responded to our appeal, helping to save lives,” said Greg Novinska, CEO of the Badger-Hawkeye Blood Services Region. “The Red Cross is so appreciative for each and every selfless act of giving. Our blood donors truly do this out of the goodness of their hearts.”

Across the country, nearly 15,000 donations have been given above expectations since the Red Cross first issued its appeal, cutting the blood donation deficit by approximately 30 percent to date. To keep up the momentum, the organization encourages anyone who has not yet given blood this summer to schedule an appointment and bring a friend or family member along with them.

Although the number of blood donations has increased, the situation remains tenuous and more donors are needed in the coming weeks. If at least three additional people give at each blood drive through the end of the summer – above what the Red Cross already expects to collect – there would be enough blood on the shelves to meet patient needs through the end of the summer.

Donors of all blood types are needed, but eligible donors with blood type O negative, O positive, A negative or B negative are especially encouraged to give at this time. Anyone who gave whole blood in July at the Plymouth Community Blood Drives may be eligible to donate again as summer comes to a close. Valid identification is required for all blood donations.
