Lake Washburn Association Members Cleanup County Highway 48
Beautiful weather greeted the team of volunteers from the Lake Washburn Association at the fall cleanup of County Highway 48 on Labor Day weekend.
As part of the Minnesota Adopt a Highway program, the LWA collects trash in the ditches and along the shoulder of a 3.5 mile stretch of Lake Washburn Road, also known as County Highway 48 in May and September.
Thank you to the Donors at CRMC Blood Drive
Forty units of blood were donated at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s recent American Red Cross Blood Drive held at Heartwood. Thank you to the donors who took the time to give blood. Each blood donation can help save up to three lives.
Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. The Red Cross relies on community partners to help ensure a sufficient blood supply for patients. About 80 percent of blood donations made to the Red Cross are through blood drives set up by community organizations, groups and businesses.
MN Sheriffs’ Scholarship Program
Sheriff Tom Burch of Cass County announced today the commencement of the Law Enforcement Scholarship Program for 2021. Sheriff Burch proudly announced that the MSA Board of Directors has established a scholarship fund for the awarding of up to 15- $2,000 scholarships for this year. These scholarships are due to the coordinated efforts of the 87 Sheriffs of the State of Minnesota.
The Members of MSA gives special recognition to the financial needs of students attending the peace officer skills course, or one of the two or four-year law enforcement degree colleges. “The Board of Directors feel peace officers in our democratic society have complex duties to perform” said Sheriff Burch. MSA recognizes the importance of pre-entry training for people considering law enforcement as their career choice. MSA recognizes some students need outside help in meeting the costs of such training, even though they excel academically.
