Are you eligible for a blood donation?  You can find the facts on line www.redcross.org.  This is a reminder to call the Red Cross or go online at www.redcross,org to reserve your spot to donate blood for our annual Blood Drive; the location is the St. Pius X Church Hall, March 9th.  Come down and donate, remember that the American Red Cross needs your help to stop winter weather from giving hospital patients the cold shoulder. Those who are eligible to donate are urged to cozy up to giving blood, platelets or plasma to help hospital patients during their time of need.

The town wide Easter Egg hunt is March 23rd.  We will be donating a child’s bicycle and helmet to this event.  This is one of our favorite events.  Every year our Little Miss & Little Mr. Wolcott assist the Easter Bunny during the Easter Egg Hunt.  If you are attending, please stop by and ask Little Miss & Mr. Wolcott how they have enjoyed their year being ambassadors for Wolcott.  A few highlights of their year so far are lighting the Wolcott Christmas Tree and greeting Santa, attending the Mayor’s Christmas Party, and more to come as well as riding in the upcoming Wolcott Memorial Day Parade.

The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott is a nonprofit organization dedicated to volunteering in our community, promoting the Arts, Conservation, Current Affairs, Education, Health and Homelife.  Opportunities for friendships, personal growth and leadership abound.  Meetings are held 7:00 PM on the first Wednesday from September to June.  Females 18+ may apply for membership – P.O. Box 6116, Wolcott, CT 06716.  We are a small but active club!
