For almost a century, the Red Cross has been serving Callaway County residents.

The Callaway County Red Cross Chapter this year will celebrate its 95th anniversary. The Callaway Chapter of the American Red Cross was organized in 1917 during World War I .

"Callaway County Red Cross volunteers continue to exhibit that same concern for their fellow man," said Clayton Kennedy, market manager for the Fulton Branch Office of the Heart of Missouri Chapter of the American Red Cross.

"I've only been working with the Red Cross for a short time," Kennedy said, "but I've come to learn that the people of Callaway County are passionate about their own and about the Red Cross."
