LifeServe Blood Center Welcomes Donors Nov. 19 and 20
The LifeServe Blood Center Blood Drive on Wednesday, Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. and Thursday, Nov. 20 from 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at the WSC Student Center could use your help! We are always in need of more donors to share in our mission of saving lives. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, the need for blood is higher than normal to help ensure the local blood supply is stable through the holiday. If you can donate, wonderful, but even if you cannot you can still make a profound difference. One of the biggest reasons that people donate is because someone important to them asked. You can have that impact on someone’s life by asking your students, co-workers, and friends to be blood donors.
Thank you so much for supporting your local blood provider!

Festival of Trees to Light Up the Student Center Atrium on Nov. 17-21
What is the Festival of Trees?
Imagine the holiday season in your home without decorations or gifts. For many Wayne County families, this bleak situation faces them every year during what should be a joyous time. Help with holiday dreams by sponsoring an entry in the 2014 Festival of Trees. With your help, we can make a difference for local families in need.
How to participate?
Your campus organization (e.g. club, department, residence hall, Hahn office, support staff) agrees to put up and decorate a tree to be displayed in the Student Center atrium from Nov. 17-21. If your organization has no tree of its own, a limited number of trees are available from Student Senate to borrow on a first-come, first-serve basis. Entry fee for each tree is $10 (or $25 for organizations that borrow a tree from Student Senate). All proceeds will go toward purchase of clothing and gifts for needy children in Wayne County. The local “Gifts for Kids” organization will provide lists with clothing sizes and toy preferences for children from eligible families.
All entries in the Festival will be evaluated by an impartial panel of judges. Award certificates in several categories will be presented to outstanding trees. Additional donations are welcome and may be placed in the collection box at the information desk in the atrium during the Festival. Sign up at the Student Center SAB Office. Entry fee due at time of sign-up.
Sponsored by the WSC Student Senate and Pi Gamma Mu

Art Show Continues
The Wayne State College Department of Art and Design presents Larry Roots, Painting: “Everything Tells a Story” at the Nordstrand Visual Arts Gallery through Nov. 20.
It is his practice to manipulate materials, take risks and intuitively improvise within each painting. In essence, it is a daily practice of doing, seeing, learning and thinking. His oeuvre can be categorized by bodies or series which are finite or continuing and have distinctions that influence current work.
Roots is a full-time painter and sculptor who resides in Omaha, Neb. He earned his B.A. in painting from the University of Northern Colorado where he was named Alumni of the Year for 2005 in the visual arts. He is owner/director of Modern Arts Midtown Fine Art Gallery, shows regionally and nationally, and is included in numerous corporate, public and private collections.
For more information about the artist, visit his website at www.larryroots.com. To learn more about the Nordstrand Visual Arts Gallery and upcoming exhibits, visit www.wsc.edu/schools/ahu/artd/nordstrand_gallery.
