Why Vote? To make sure your Lakeland Chapter has the resources to respond to emergencies at a moments notice in our community. Wednesday, October 27, volunteers opened an emergency shelter in Suring and Neopit. The shelter was available to anyone without power due to the high winds.
“I work for Menominee County Health and Human Services Department and had the privilege of working with some of your volunteers at the Neopit warming shelter/meal tonight. Many families were able to come in from the cold and get a hot meal while waiting for their power to be restored. Thank you so much.”

The Rumba is the perfect dance for someone crowned “Hawaiian Tropics Mr. Buns” back in the day! Dean Lindsley recalls his most memorable “dancing” experience.
While not my first recollection of dancing, my most memorable dancing recollection takes me back to 1984 somewhere on a diving board in Daytona Beach Florida while participating in the “Hawaiian Tropics Mr. Buns” contest. Legend has it that a small amount of liquid courage and a few smooth moves won me that contest!

Why you should also vote!
When our neighbors are affected by fires, floods and tornadoes, the Red Cross is there. When someone needs blood, the Red Cross is there. When Americans want to be able to help in an emergency, the Red Cross is there with life-saving training. When military members and their families need to be connected during a personal crisis, the Red Cross is there. We are there providing rides for seniors and those with disabilities to get to medical appointments, get to the grocery store, and get to employment. Volunteers do all this important work.
Measured by the number of people served by every dollar donated to the Red Cross, no other non-profit organization in America can boast a higher return on the donor’s investment. Ninety-one (91) cents of every dollar donated to the organization goes to delivering programs and services. The American Red Cross is not a government agency. As such, it relies on charitable contributions to fulfill its mission. Please support your American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter.
