Giving blood is easy to do

Emily Schmaltz, 19, of Milan, doesn't mind giving blood. She knows it's for a good cause, she gets free ice cream, and helps her brother, Eric, who is the Blood Donor Recruiter for Hoxworth Blood Center in Cincinnati. Hoxworth was set up at the Ripley County 4-H Fair Tuesday evening and everyone who gave blood was treated to a free ice cream cone, compliments of the Ripley County Farm Bureau.
