Need for Blood Does Not Stop for Holidays – Donors Needed!
Those who come to give through Dec. 18 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card
 
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, more than 1 million units of blood could be transfused in the United States. Individuals are urged to give a lifesaving gift this holiday season by making an appointment to donate blood and help the American Red Cross ensure a sufficient supply is available for patients throughout the holiday season. Those with type O blood are especially needed.
 
How blood donation impacts lives
On Sept. 28, 2018, MaKenzie Schienebeck experienced a complication during her pregnancy and found herself losing blood extremely fast. She was in and out of consciousness and felt her life slipping away. Schienebeck was given blood transfusions on the way to the hospital, during emergency surgery and after surgery. “I would not be alive today if it was not for the American Red Cross and the gracious donors who gave their blood,” said Schienebeck. “Blood is more than just blood. It’s the key to saving lives.”
 
During the holiday season, set aside an hour to give blood and be the lifeline patients need. Make an appointment now by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
 
In thanks for helping meet the urgent need, those who come to give blood now through Dec. 18 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, courtesy of Suburban Propane. (Restrictions apply; see amazon.com/gc-legal. More information and details are available at RedCrossBlood.org/Thanks.)

Estate and Transition Planning Workshop

Ag Land Transition . Estate Planning Workshop 2019

“Retiring or passing the farm to the next generation is difficult to think about and is an admission of your own impending demise,” said Allan Vyhnalek, extension educator in farm succession. “However, it is a necessary step and, with good planning, can be made as painless as possible.”           

The workshop will be free, but registration is requested and can be completed by contacting Nebraska Extension in Cass County at 402-267-2205, or in person at the Extension office, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

At the Nov. 20 workshop, Vyhnalek will cover the importance of having a plan, proper family communications and proper family negotiations. The Dec. 4 session will be led by Nick Montague, an attorney with Goosmann Law, and will cover end-of-life documentation, tax considerations at death and tools for estate planning like wills, trusts, LLCs and other business entities. The Dec. 10 workshop will be led by Randy Nesbit, a consultant with Protective Distributors, and Brent Connelly, a financial advisor with Edward Jones. They will cover the use of insurance products, investment strategies, buy/sell agreements and other transition strategies.

“Reactions from past participants can be summarized into one comment: most wished that they had attended this workshop years earlier,” said Vyhnalek. “This program gives a good outline of the process farm and ranch businesses need to take to start or restart that process.”

For program information or assistance, please contact Allan Vyhnalek, extension educator, at 402-472-1771 or avyhnalek2@unl.edu. For registration questions, please contact Nebraska Extension in Cass County at 402-267-2205.
