Blood drive Monday at Redeemer

The Monday, May 19, Blood Drive will be held at Redeemer Lutheran on Eastern Avenue. This will be the third of six held throughout the year. The hours will be from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m.

The drive is co-sponsored by the Plymouth Lions and the Plymouth American Legion Post 243 and hosted by the BloodCenter of Wisconsin, a non-profit organization that supplies the blood for use in over 50 Wisconsin hospitals as well as Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center, Froedert Children’s Hospital and the Aurora Surgery Center, Plymouth.

The BloodCenter of Wisconsin currently has shortages in most blood types because of the rough winter.

The groups have set a goal of 50 donations throughout the day — if you are busy you may call and get an appointment go to or call 1-877-232-4376 and mention the Plymouth Blood Drive. The Blood Center also stresses that walk-ins are very welcome.

It takes roughly an hour to go through the donation process. You need to be healthy, have a driver’s license or a photo ID and the ability to give some medical information.

Mark your calendar for the other Blood Drives throughout the year. They will all be held on Mondays - July 28, Sept. 29, and Nov. 24.

Please be a hero and donate. Your donation could be the most valuable gift you ever give - just ask anyone who has ever received.

Motorists are advised to use caution and remain alert when driving through any work zone.

Priebe completes institute

Sheboygan County Sheriff Todd Priebe recently completed the 105th session of the National Sheriff’s Institute in Aurora, Colo.

The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriff’s and is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections and the National Sheriff’s Association. Priebe is the first Sheboygan County sheriff to graduate from the NSI.

Priebe joined 21 other sheriffs from across the country for training on contemporary challenges facing sheriffs today. In light of these challenges, the sheriffs explored the role of the local sheriff in providing effective leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations and organizational effectiveness and efficiency.

The NIC is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Prisons. It is the primary federal source of technical assistance, training and information services for state and local corrections. NIC provides a wide variety of services to the nation’s jails, most of which are the responsibility of sheriffs.
