Friday, 21 March, was a successful event put together by Mrs. Walton, SAF Specialist, for the Red Cross. Service members, retirees, family members, and civilians all came out to learn how the Red Cross helps the local community. Representatives for Blood Service, Disaster Relief, Volunteer Services, and Health and Safety Classes all came out to collaboratively support the Services to the Armed Forces Specialist. Seeing the volunteers come from all different areas of the local chapter was a huge inspiration to how much the Red Cross impacts the average American’s life.
Saturday, 22 March, all the volunteers who helped put together Ride for the Red fundraiser was able to see how each little role we played make such a big difference through hard work and determination. For a second day all the representatives of the local West Central Georgia chapter of the American Red Cross came out to raise money to be donated to the local chapter. Over 75 motorcycle riders drove over 100 miles in recognition of Red Cross Awareness Month. Taking a scenic drive from the National Infantry Museum to Pine Mountain, Warm Springs and back to the National Infantry Museum the roads of West Central Georgia rumbled as riders drove behind the Red Cross Flag.
