Blood Donors Needed October 22nd

Bloodmobile

Greetings to all of Volente's previous and future donors!

 

The VVFD Auxiliary is hosting another blood drive on Saturday, October 22 during the VVFD 50th Anniversary Celebration.  Please consider donating as every three seconds someone needs blood.

 

The bloodmobile will be in front of the fire hall from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Walk-ins are gratefully accepted but scheduling in advance minimizes the wait time for the donation process.

 

I have openings every 15 minutes starting at 8:00 AM.  If you want to donate this year, please email jacquepotts@gmail.com or call me at 512-468-7685.

Water Advice 
(Dear eNews)

I wanted to raise an issue which impacts all the families living in the Volente area.

I, like most families in and around Volente, rely on a well to provide water to our house.   With the recent drought we have seen some of our neighbors' wells run dry and them have to spend vast sums on having a new well dug or water shipped.    We also notice other neighbors who have beautiful green gardens and are regularly soaking them in our precious drinking water to keep them that way.    Our wells all pull from the same source of water and so only if everyone uses the least amount possible can we preserve the supply for all.    For those on town water, restrictions have been invoked and they are fined for watering more than 1 time per week, but in Volente the few are pumping water out of the ground without consideration for everyone who needs that water to live.   Who knows how long this drought may continue? 

 

I guess the residents' association has little formal powers to invoke a watering restrictions, but could play an active role in helping to persuade these (residents) to think again.   I do hope that you would be willing to take action to protect us all.
