There will be a Red Cross blood drive at the TACC in Montevideo on Thurs., Jan. 18 from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. sponsored by the American Legion. The Red Cross will also be at the MN West Community and Technical College in Granite Falls on Jan. 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. as well as the Kilowatt Center from 1 to 7 p.m.
