County seeks more volunteers for committee

The Glen Burnie Convenience Center and Landfill Advisory Committee is still looking for more members.

The county Department of Utilities had hoped to get at least a dozen people to serve on the committee, said Jody Vollmar, department spokeswoman. But so far, only seven members have volunteered.

And when the committee met last month, only three members turned out for a discussion on recycling.

The committee has scheduled another meeting for Jan. 11, Ms. Vollmar said.

The advisory group is supposed to serve as a link among the Glen Burnie area communities and the county on issues surrounding the capping of the Glen Burnie Landfill and possible changes at the Convenience Center, as well as advise the county about recycling, the landfill and the center.

Local blood banks seek more donations

The Glen Burnie office of the American Red Cross accepts blood donations from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at its Donor Center on Oak Lane at Greenway in Glen Burnie, near the Holy Trinity Church.

The holidays can be a particularly difficult time to keep the blood banks adequately supplied. The Baltimore- and metropolitan-area branches of the Red Cross need to collect 1,500 units of blood daily to serve the needs of the hospitals in Central Maryland.

Authorities agree that a healthy person can contribute blood every 56 days.
