Proclamation: Red Cross Month

In the March 4th Board of County Commissioners meeting, Julie Barr-Strasburg of the Washington County Chapter of the American Red Cross received a proclamation, designating March 2008 as Red Cross Month in the County, from Commissioners' President John Barr.
In presenting the proclamation, Barr, who is Barr-Strasburg's brother, said that Washington County supports the efforts of the Red Cross in saving lives through provision of blood and in providing services in times of disaster. Barr cited the role of the organization in the community for responding to emergencies, aiding military families and teaching over 8,000 people life saving skills such as CPR and First Aid. Citizens were urged to give of their time, blood and money to make a difference in the humanitarian fabric of the community.
Barr commended the organization for its quick response to the recent fire in Boonsboro.
