BRISTOL — Bristol will host a blood donation site during National Sickle Cell Awareness Month. The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give blood in September to help ensure a stable and diverse blood supply for patients in need.

That’s always been important for them and the Guild, but Steve and Christine also saw the potential to create more of a gathering spot for their diehard fans and to create a slightly different vibe for their students.
