Take time November 10-18 to walk through the Field of Valor virtual field trip at Veterans Park. It's geared towards 5th grade students to #Inspire experiential learning. Look for the signs posted at 10 history stations located along the memorial trail. Start at the flag field closest to the softball parking lot with a pledge to the American flag and end with a moment of silence at the War on Terror monument featuring a piece of the World Trade Centers from the 9/11 attack. Click the YouTube playlist below for short video clips provided by Mr. Pratt (A&M Consolidated US History and Economics teacher) and download or print the script booklet to read about the 10 history stations.

At our Blood Drive on Wednesday, August 3, twenty-three Qualifying Donors contributed 36 Units of Blood which doubled the totals from our January drive. This impressive result occurred because so many donors volunteered to do automated donations through the apheresis machines. A special thanks to the many Bryan & Aggieland Rotarians who took time to donate and especially to Charles Gilliland for coordinating the drive! Check out the video link and we hope you can join us in January 2012 at our next blood drive.
