The future of the American Red Cross

Today was our local small town parade and my young grandson has anxiously awaited this day all week. I asked him to lead our American Red Cross lineup representing the future of the Red Cross organization. Our youth of tomorrow need to catch the Red Cross vision to carry on behind us. Mark loves everything about the American Red Cross and can hardly wait until he too can become a volunteer just as his Nana does. He's also wearing a blanket around his shoulders to represent the comfort we give to those who have suffered a disaster. There was not a prouder young man to be found than this one today!

Mark proudly carried the American Red Cross flag and led the way even though it was bitter cold. I'm proud of you Mark and look forward to you carrying on my love for serving in the American Red Cross!
