Sometimes we tend to take things for granted. There are things in our lives that we never give a first thought, much less a second. They are those things you don't ever think about until you need them. The American Red Cross is one of those things. Here is your chance to get involved with this fine organization.

The Crossroads Chapter of the American Red Cross will hold the 2012 annual meeting and volunteer recognition from 5:30-7 p.m. June 26 at the 77901 Wine Bar, 221 S. Main St, says the Victoria Advocate. Membership is open to all people who make a monetary contribution, perform volunteer service and/or donate to the American Red Cross.

For more information or to make reservations by June 25, contact the chapter at 361-573-2671.
