Lakeland Red Cross to be restructured

Red Cross

The future of the Lakeland Red Cross Chapter is uncertain following the issuance of pink slips to area directors yesterday. The move comes in the wake of a restructuring effort by Red Cross, part of the new 'Vision 2017' program. The new structure will be in place January 1, 2015. Initial reports indicate the new chapter will encompass 24 counties in west Kentucky and will be headquartered in either Paducah or Owensboro. The transformation was needed due to a repeated turnover in leadership; a $209 million operating deficit and significant debt; an unwieldy organizational structure; difficulties within our Blood Services operations; outdated IT systems; a powerful but tired brand; and a fundraising strategy in need of a makeover.

Paducah library receives donation

The Paducah Tilghman High School Class of 1984 has donated $400.02 to the Paducah Tilghman Library. These funds were left from their recent successful 30th reunion due to the excellent attendance and frugal planning. This reunion was special in that several classmates anonymously donated extra so others could attend at no charge. All door prizes were donated, others worked behind the scenes and gave their time and supplies. In this spirit, acts of kindness carry on as the Class of 1984 continues to volunteer, gather, and give back. The funds raised will go to purchase new books and electronic equipment for students.
