StuCo is sponsoring a Red Cross blood drive Thursday, March 3, from 2-6 PM in the high school cafeteria.  Please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit and enter: VanFarHS to schedule an appointment. The Red Cross is experiencing the worst blood shortage in over a decade. If you need help looking for an appointment, please contact Mr. Rost or call 573-594-6442. We are ten donors away from qualifying for a Red Cross scholarship.  Please help the students earn this money for college/future job training. If you are in high school and would like to donate, you must fill out a parental permission form located on the office ledge. High School blood donors need to bring their permission forms with them to the blood drive tomorrow.

All STUCO members are required to work the blood drive.  Please see Mr. Rost.

Vandalia Youth Ball Umpire applications are available from the office ledge.  Must be 15 years old to umpire.  Forms must be completed and returned to City Hall or Ramsey Dickerman’s State Farm office.
