Marana blood drive to be held Thursday, Feb. 25

The American Red Cross and Town of Marana are hosting a blood drive Thursday, Feb. 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Marana Municipal Complex, 11555 W. Civic Center Drive.

Donating blood takes 45 to 60 minutes, and donors do need not know their type in order to give, a release said.

The Red Cross supplies blood to patients at all local hospitals. Because the need for blood is constant, the Red Cross needs about 300 donors each day in Arizona.

To sign up, contact Rodney Campbell, Marana public information officer, at rcampbell@marana.com or 382-1936.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
