TOMORROW, Thursday, the city of Hitchcock is holding a community blood drive at the city’s branch of Texas First Bank. Your donation could help save a life, including that of Michael Watkins, who in February was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer that required emergency back surgery.
He is still recovering and will soon receive a stem-cell transplant as part of his treatment. Your donation could be useful if Watkins’ red blood count ever drops. Our May 7 listing contains more details.
Also tomorrow morning, life-skills coach Elizabeth Barbour will be at Tradicao Brazilian Steakhouse in Webster to tell you how to create connections for personal and business success. Our May 3 listing contains more details.
On Friday, skip breakfast so you can again be at the Hitchcock branch of Texas First Bank to buy treats at a Mother’s Day bake sale. The event, hosted by Hitchcock Heritage Society, is a fundraiser for Hitchcock Heritage museum and cottage. Our May 7 listing contains more details.
The city of League City is hosting a hurricane-preparation event on Saturday to teach people how to protect their homes and loved ones from the wrath of Mother Nature, along with giveaways, prizes, food, and games for all ages to encourage you to go along. Our May 7 listing contains more details.
