Fredricksen Library has teamed up with Penn State Master Gardeners to bring you a series of workshops that will show you how to garden with nature.  Penn State Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Penn State Extension to provide research-based home gardening information to the public. Benjamin Franklin said “nothing in this world can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” A gardener would surely add weeds to that list, for every year the weeds appear. Learn to identify some of the most common weeds found in lawn and garden, along with tips and strategies for managing these pesky plants.

Cost per workshop is $5.00. More topics offered on the 4th Tuesday of each month (8/22, 9/26 & 10/24). Registration for all programs is now open. To register contact: Penn State Extension, Cumberland County 717-240-6500 or 1-888-697-0371 x6500.

Donating blood may be one of the most important things you’ve ever done. Just one pint of your blood can save as many as four lives.  Come and donate in Fredricksen's lower parking lot (Walnut Street).  The Central PA Blood Bank will be here one Friday every other month. It is a safe and easy process which takes approximately 45 minutes. Generally, anyone age 16 or older, weighing at least 110 pounds and in good health, can donate blood. If you have any questions about donating, call Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank at 1-800-771-0059 or visit www.cpbb.org.
