Here are events worth getting out of the house for on March 8.
Suggestions include Midlothian and Chicago’s Beverly community.
BREMEN BLOOD DRIVE: From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Bremen High School’s Key Club will host a blood drive at 15203 S. Pulaski Road, Midlothian, (708) 371-3600. LifeSource blood donors must be at least 17 years old (or 16 with parent permission), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, and should not have given blood in the past eight weeks (56 days). Donors will receive a new pair of flannel pajama pants and an entry into a raffle for $100. Information: Jeff Dyke, Bremen Key Club sponsor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
