Emergency request for blood donors! Community Blood Drive July 21st at the Salina Stake Center

Blood Drive

Emergency request for blood donors!

The American Red Cross is conducting an Emergency Community Blood Drive for the Salina Utah Area this Thursday July 21st, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Salina Utah Stake Center located at 98 West 400 North in Salina Utah.

In just an hour of your time, you can help save up to three lives. Make sure hospital patients get the treatment they need. 

Right now, the American Red Cross has a significant blood shortage and is issuing an emergency request for eligible blood and platelet donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve now and help save lives.

With less than a five-day blood supply on hand, your blood drive is more important than ever!

This blood drive in the Salina Utah Area is greatly appreciated and can help offset this shortage in donations. Blood donations are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in.

A Lucky Tourist Shares His Experience of Staying in Salina Utah and Attending the Balloon Festival


While checking his family into a Salina hotel, Dustin Welch from Nashville Tennessee was told by a friendly desk clerk that their family will want to get up early and experience the Eyes to the Sky Balloon Festival just west of Salina. Dustin shares his experience of what happened to him.

We would like to thank all of the friendly clerks who assist people traveling through Salina. We express gratitude to you for taking a few moments to help people feel like they are visiting a wonderful destination. You are making Salina spectacular.


Happy Independence Day!

A few years ago a couple of friends wrote about there favorite holiday in their home town of Salina, Utah. Tweeb Gladwell and Cody Braithwaite wrote about the parade, the rodeo, the games and all of the other things that made Salina’s Fourth of July celebration memorable. Listen to the words of this song and just see if it doesn’t remind you of home. And enjoy a little bit of last year’s parade to get you in the mood for this year’s celebration.
