    Lake Shelbyville

    Blood Drive


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville is partnering with the American Red Cross for a blood drive on Thursday, September 18, 2014. The blood drive is from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center Auditorium. Refreshments provided by Shelbyville McDonalds will be available for participants of blood drive. Participants who attempt to donate will receive a voucher for a free night of camping at Lake Shelbyville. The certificate can be used at any standard, single capacity, non-reservable site at Bo Wood, Coon Creek, Lithia Springs, Lone Point, or Opossum Creek.

The American Red Cross works diligently every day to keep an adequate supply of blood, especially in preparation for the summer recreation months when donations are needed. In the U.S. today, a blood transfusion is needed every two seconds. The need for blood is ongoing—24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to give the gift of life to help meet the demand.

To schedule an appointment call 1-800 RED CROSS or visit and use the code USACE Shelbyville. All donors must present a Photo ID. For questions please contact the Lake Shelbyville Interpretive Services and Outreach Department at (217) 774-3951 ext. 2.

Want something a little different for a day on the Mississippi? Grab a bunch of your fellow pirates, sunbathers, boaters, and wakeboarders and try paddling down the river in the Mississippi River Water Trail Association’s 2nd Annual Poker Paddle on September 20, 2014. A new section of the river: from Sherwood Access to Hideaway Harbor on the Mississippi River is featured this year. Registration opens at 10:00 a.m. at Sherwood Access, Portage Des Sioux, MO. The registration fee covers your game and a cook-out lunch (hotdogs, chips, and marshmallows). Kayaks and canoes can be rented for a small additional fee. After the 10:30 mandatory safety meeting, players travel to different locations where a dealer will give out cards to build your hand. Card sheets will be accepted until 2:30 p.m. at Hideaway Harbor. We recommend that you keep playing into the evening with a visit to one of the great river towns or harbors along the river as the perfect ending to the day.

The person with the winning hand will receive 25 percent of the registration fees. Safety boaters will be on hand to assist participants. Shuttles will be provided. No inflatable boats, please. All participants must be at least 16 years of age. Event subject to postponement due to inclement weather or high water. For more information or to register click here or call the National Great Rivers Museum at 618.462.6979.
