An enjoyable evening…
Last Friday I wanted to see my oldest grandson play football for the Eagles. Of course, with the pandemic going to the game wasn’t an option at least for me. I opted to tune into the Braxton Live broadcast. I have watched bits and pieces of previous broadcast, but this was my first full game.
I must say, I was extremely impressed. The quality of the coverage was outstanding. It was truly a treat that I plan on repeating.
During the game, I realized that more should take advantage of the quality opportunity to view the game. I sent Eric Campbell a text message and told him I knew he was busy but when he had time, I would like to see what the paper could do to help others learn about what Braxton Live had to offer. On Monday we spoke and have quickly found some common ground so watch soon for items in the paper pertaining to the broadcast.
Getting behind Eric and his crew was a very easy decision. I found out how great they are to work with during the Rotary’s Virtual Elimination Event. It is easy to see that their goal is to promote the youth of our county and they do it in such a professional way. More need to take advantage of the end product and we hope to help them out by letting our readers know when and were to find them.
A “pandemic” blood screening…
As you can see by the front-page story, the Rotary’s Blood Screening is back on track after the Spring session fell victim to the pandemic. As always, Kim Fraizer and her crew at the Hospital have been great to work with. With their help, we believe we have a plan that will create as little of an inconvenience as possible. In fact, it may even make the process easier. To accomplish that goal, we have to change things and we all know that none of us really like change. The biggest change will be that everyone has to pre-register. In doing so, they will be assigned a time to be at the hospital to have their blood drawn. By having an appointment, we hope to make the process shorter and as painless (pun intended) as possible. If you have any questions, call our office or the other numbers in the article for more information. COVID 19 has certainly messed up our lives. Hopefully these changes and having the blood screening in spite of the obstacles will illustrate how resilient our society is.
