World Blood Donor Day is June 14, and the American Red Cross is joining blood centers around the world in reminding eligible donors that giving blood year-round is vital to ensuring a sufficient blood supply to meet patient needs.

No matter the season, the need for blood is constant.  Every two seconds someone in the US needs a transfusion, and around 44,000 pints of blood must be donated every day to meet patient needs.

To emphasize the importance of giving blood year-round, and timed with World Blood Donor Day on June 14, the American Red Cross encourages those eligible to become regular donors, especially during the summer.

Summer is a challenging time to collect enough blood donations to meet patient needs.  If at least two more donors give blood at every Red Cross blood drive this summer-above what's expected-it will help ensure blood is available for patients at a moment's notice.

A stable blood supply is vital for treating trauma victims, cancer patients, organ transplant recipients, premature babies, sickle cell disease patients and many others.

Dixie Swim Club Opens Lofte's 37th Season

The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley is excited to open its doors for its thirty-seventh season on Saturday, May 25th with the female comedy, "Dixie Swim Club."  Written by the team of Jones, Hope and Wooten, 'Dixie' is the story of five southern women whose friendship began while on their college swim team.  Now, years later, they set aside one long weekend every August to recharge relationships and meddle in each other's lives.

Directed by Kevin Colbert, the five 'Dixie' women are played by Allison Bauers of Louisville, Sharon Strassler Kryger of LaVista, Betty Colbert of Weeping Water and Dawn Holdorf and Hope Hibler both of Manley.  Production dates are May 31, June 1, 2 and 6-9.  All seats are reserved and tickets are $17.  Season ticket packages are on sale through June 9 for only $65.  A season ticket includes one pass to each of the upcoming shows in 2013 including 'Dixie Swim Club', 'The Producers', 'The Boys Next Door', 'Nunset Boulevard', and 'The Best Christmas Pageant Ever'.

The Lofte is located just east of the intersection of Highway 1 and 50 near the town of Manley.  You can reach the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit www.Lofte.com


The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley has many opportunities for volunteers to come and see the productions free of charge.  Specifically, they are seeking individuals to help usher and direct parking lot traffic during the run of 'Dixie Swim Club'.  Production dates are May 31, June 1, 2 and 6-9.

Volunteers are required to arrive 45 minutes prior to show time.  They work for the 30 minutes prior to curtain and then are asked to stay and clean the auditorium after the show is done.  Clean-up usually takes approximately 30 minutes.

Volunteering at the Lofte is a great way to meet new people and contribute to Nebraska's only barn theater venue!  Those interested may call Lofte Volunteer Coordinator Carly Moore-Sird at 402-616-5987 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.
