DUNCAN — Students of the Red River Technology Center (RRTC) Health Careers Certification program will partner with the Oklahoma Blood Institute to host a blood drive from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The drive will be in the Seminar Room of the main technology center building.

The blood drive is open to the public. Donors will receive a t-shirt and health screening.

People from 17 and up can donate blood. Sixteen-year-olds with written permission from their parent or guardian can also donate blood. They must weigh at least 125 pounds. All others must weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health to donate.

All donors are encouraged to eat a good meal and drink extra fluids before and after donating. It is helpful to avoid drinking tea 48 hours prior to giving blood. A photo ID is required for all donors.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
