    Nov-10-18

    The Jeff Davis County Veterans Association will honor veterans at the annual Veterans Day ceremony Saturday, November 10, at 11 a.m., at Veterans Square Park on Tallahassee Street. The public is encouraged to attend the ceremony, which in part celebrates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
    The ceremony is held at 11 a.m., which commemorates the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. World War I ended Nov. 11, 1918, and Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, is a day set aside to honor veterans from wartime and peacetime and either living or dead.
    “While Veterans Day is November 11, it falls on a Sunday this year,” says Roy Anderson, president of the Veterans Association. “We’re holding our ceremony this Saturday as not to conflict with local church services.”
    Jimmy L. Parker, a pastor who also served as chaplain of the Georgia Rural Letter Carriers Association for 15 years, will be this year’s guest speaker. He was in the U.S. Air Force four years, eventually serving in Vietnam from August of 1968 until August of 1969 while stationed at Da Nang Air Base.
    Parker is retired from the U.S. Postal Service where he was a rural letter carrier. He is a graduate of Cook County High School in Adel and also earned an associate’s degree in agriculture from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton. He is married and has one son and two daughters.
    The Veterans Association will also recognize all Persian Gulf veterans in a special observance.
    Says Anderson, “If you served during the Persian Gulf era (1990-91) and received the Persian Gulf ribbon, please attend Saturday’s ceremonies and be recognized.”
    During Saturday’s events, which includes selections of patriotic music, the names of veterans recently inscribed on the park’s monument will be read.
    For additional information, call Anderson at 912-375-5361.

  • Blood Drive At First Baptist Church School Building
    12:00 pm-5:00 pm
    Nov-13-18

    As influenza activity picks up, the American Red Cross is urging healthy donors of all blood types to give blood to ensure a strong blood supply for patients in need.
    Blood and platelets can only be given by donors who are feeling well. One way to maintain health is to get a flu vaccine each fall. There is no waiting period to give blood after receiving a flu shot as long as the donor is symptom-free and fever-free.
    Stay healthy this flu season and make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the free American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
    Donors of all blood types, especially type O, are needed this fall after hurricanes Michael and Florence forced the cancellation of about 200 blood drives, causing approximately 7,000 units of blood and platelets to go uncollected.
    The next blood collection in Jeff Davis County will be Nov. 13, 12-5 p.m., First Baptist Church School Building, 1st East Avenue.

    From Hazlehurst, the boxes are delivered to the Samaritans Purse processing center in Atlanta, and will be sent by air and sea to countries all over the world.
    The children who receive the boxes are the poorest of poor children and for some this box will be the first Christmas gift they have ever received. Each child that receives a shoebox is also given an opportunity to participate in a 12-week Bible study called The Greatest Journey. The shoe box brings happiness but greater, the Bible study offers hope to children living in desperate situations.
    Because He Lives Ministries will pack and load the shoe boxes onto the semi Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. Everyone is invited to help. Churches are invited to bring their children and youth groups to help.
