One hundred years ago, a group of community leaders gathered at the Produce Exchange Building with the intent of forming a local chapter of the American Red Cross. On July 7th, 1916 a formal charter was obtained from the National Red Cross.. 

Rachel Hepner-Zawodny, Exec-utive Director, states that “in 2016, the Northwest Ohio Chapter of the American Red Cross celebrates its 100th birthday.  From volunteer recognition events to a gala concert, and events to honor veterans, 2016 will offer opportunities for the entire community to celebrate the contributions the American Red Cross these past 100 years.”

The April program will be “Preparing for the Next Generation” presented by the Auto Dealers United for Kids and Promedica will be offering Blood Services in May. A Centennial concert will be presented  by Hollywood Casino in June.
