The Battle of the Badges blood drive will be held Wednesday, Nov. 27 from noon to 6 p.m., at the Altus Community Center. Each donor will receive their choice of Bedlam T-shirt and a chance to win a pair of 2013 Bedlam football tickets. This is an annual blood drive, and last year the Fire Department, EMS, Sherriff Department, Police Department and OHP took part in the event. Each donor gets to vote on a department, and the department with the most votes wins a plaque that gets to stay with the department until the next year. The Fire Department has won the last three years in a row. We know it is a busy time of year for a blood drive and Wednesday is a very busy day for everyone, but winter is approaching, and this is a time of year when donations are greatly needed.
