Veteran's Salute Blood Drive is Saturday, Nov. 14 at Community National Bank


Bellaire – Oct. 19, 2009. . . In honor of Veterans Day, Community National Bank (CNB), VFW Post 5619 and the Rotary Club of Bellaire/Southwest Houston ask area citizens to donate blood Saturday, November 14, between 9 a.m. and noon, at the seventh annual Commit for Life Blood Drive saluting U.S. veterans. The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center mobile unit will be in front of the bank, 5123 Bellaire Boulevard at South Rice.
“This Veterans Day, we hope local citizens will honor our U.S. vets by donating blood and helping save lives in our own greater Houston community,” said Randy Dobbs, Community National Bank CEO. “One donation may save three lives, such as trauma victims, surgery patients, premature babies and those with anemia and cancer.”
Potential blood donors may register at www.giveblood.org, using sponsor code JO96 said Donna Alley, a Rotarian and CNB Vice President and Business Development Officer, who is spearheading the blood drive.
More than 900 blood donations are needed every day for patients in the Texas Gulf Coast region – from accident victims to cancer patients to premature babies. According to The Blood Center, one pint of blood is needed every 1.3 seconds. Blood usage continues to increase each year, while the eligible donor base continues to decrease because of the travel restrictions imposed by the FDA.
Those who donate or attempt to donate blood at the drive will be part of a three-month Blood Center incentive program that registers them for a chance to win one of four pairs of Continental Airlines tickets for travel in the contiguous U.S.
The VFW Post 5619 and Rotary Club will have booths at the bank, the latter for its Flags Over Bellaire program, where the club delivers flags to display in one’s yard for Veterans Day, Memorial Day, July 4 and Labor Day.
Blood donors must be 17 or older (16 with parental consent), weigh a minimum of 110 pounds (122 lbs. for age 16), in general good health without cold or flu symptoms and show a valid photo ID prior to the donation. Donors that have (partial list) a history of hepatitis (after age 11); HIV; chronic kidney disease, coronary heart disease; internal cancer requiring surgery; or uncontrolled diabetes are permanently deferred.
Houston Area Rotary Clubs support U.S. veterans several ways, including “Homes for Vets” in partnership with Mayor Bill White and the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes Houston, whereby Rotarians help disabled veterans ease back into civilian life with homes built with project funds raised. The Rotary Club of Bellaire/Southwest Houston is one of 31,000 Rotary clubs in more than 165 countries that provide humanitarian services and promote goodwill around the globe. Community National Bank is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. The drive-through bank, 5235 Bellaire Boulevard at Ferris St., is open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to noon.

Annual Free Child I.D. Kit Day Set for Sat., Aug. 8 at Community National Bank

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Bellaire – July 20, 2009. . .  . Community National Bank (CNB) will sponsor its eighth annual “Free Child I.D. Kit Day” Saturday, August 8, 9 a.m. to noon, in the bank’s Bellaire Room, 5123 Bellaire Boulevard at South Rice. The bank, along with the Bellaire Police Department, Bellaire Lions Club and McGruff, the Crime Dog, will distribute the free child identification kits to area families as a community service.”If you don’t have a Child I.D. kit for your child, we encourage you to come get one on August 8. If you have a Child I.D. kit, we hope you will come update the photo, which should be done annually,” said Bellaire Police Department Community Resource Officer Tim Quimby.

According to Community National Bank CEO Randy Dobbs, the bank has distributed hundreds of kits to help protect local children over the past seven years. Geared to children from 2-1/2 years to early teens, Free Child I.D. Kit Day will include children’s on-site instant photos and fingerprinting for their families’ records. The bank will serve complimentary lemonade and donuts and distribute “goody bags” to the children.

Completed Child I.D. kits contain pertinent identification data such as names and contact information of the child’s friends and family, blood type, allergy information and DNA hair sample, in a compact, comprehensive, confidential and convenient format. Bellaire Police Department Officer Quimby notes that having a recent casual photograph of the child (as opposed to a posed portrait) is a major help to law enforcement in search efforts. He will be available to answer crime prevention questions.

Community National Bank Community Club Hosts Health Screening July 28

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Bellaire, TX – July 6, 2009. . . Area citizens can help protect themselves against such life-threatening diseases as stroke, vascular disease and erratic heart rhythm at a Life Line health screening Tuesday, July 28 sponsored by the Community National Bank (CNB) Community Club. Presented by Memorial Hermann, the screenings will be held at ChristChurch Presbyterian, 5001 Bellaire Boulevard in Bellaire.

“I learned from my husband’s (Bill Williams), experience six years ago that preventative screenings like this with Ultrasounds can be life-saving,” said CNB Community Club Director Judy Williams. “Community Club member Betty Zumwalt encouraged us to attend a health screening in 2003, where Bill’s Ultrasound turned up some red flags, including swollen lymph glands. He then made an appointment with his personal physician, who referred him to an oncologist who diagnosed Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Bill also had an abdominal aneurysm and subsequently had a stint put in.” The Williams’s refer to Betty as Bill’s ‘guardian angel.’ Had he waited to see the doctor when symptoms for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma showed up, it most likely would have been too late to help him, according to the treating physician.

Life Line Screening, which has screened more than five million participants nationally, provides these four facts to know about stroke prevention:

  • 80% of stroke victims have no apparent warning signs
  • Ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stoke
  • Stroke is a leading cause of death and permanent disability
  • Screenings are fast, painless, affordable and convenient

July 28 Stroke/Vascular/Heart Rhythm screening includes: stroke/carotid artery disease; abdominal aortic aneurysm, Peripheral Arterial Disease and Atrial Fibrillation. The cost of the screening is $129. One may add an osteoporosis test for $10, for a total of $139. To add a heart and diabetes fingerstick blood to the ultrasound package costs $50, or $179 total. Advance registration is required; the registration form is available at Community National Bank, 5123 Bellaire Boulevard at South Rice. A Life Line Screening representative will call within 48 hours to schedule the appointment, provide screening preparation instructions and secure payment by credit card.  Participants may pay the day of the screening for an additional handling charge.

The drive-through bank, 5235 Bellaire Boulevard at Ferris Street, is open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to noon.
