AMBOY - The Amboy Civic Organization (A.C.O.) will be sponsoring a Red Cross Blood Drive Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, at the Amboy Community Building from noon until 6 p.m. Any person 17 years or older, and in good health, will be welcome. We all know the need for blood is constant so please consider taking an hour of your time to help someone in desperate need. Because the Illinois Department of Public Health is now inspecting tattoo and body piercing facilities anyone that has received a tattoo, applied with sterile needles, will no longer be deferred for 12 months. If you have any questions about eligibility call the Red Cross at 1-800-733-27667. To make an appointment call Darlene Hinkle at 815-857-3864.
