What is 100 years Old and Red All Over?
In 1917, with the United States involved in "the war to end all wars", concerned residents across Southeast an Deep East Texas formed local chapters of the American Red Cross. At this time, the Red Cross was a small organization still in the process of developing its identity and programs. These visionary people wanted to ensure that this area was ready to help the country in conflict, as well as during peacetime. By the time the war ended in 1918, the Red Cross had become a major national humanitarian organization with strong leadership a huge membership base, universal recognition, and a broad and distinguished record of service.

In 2017, we will launch a year-long Centennial celebration that will recognize the organization's many accomplishments, as well as its future plans for making our communities stronger and more resilient in the next 100 years. During the year, you will have the opportunity to attend special events including a Centennial Masquerade Gala on May 20, 2017. During this celebration community supports will be honored for their tremendous work over the pass 100 years on the organization's behalf. Honorees will include the Nelda & Lutcher Stark family, the McFaddin Ward family, the C. Homer & Edith Fuller Chambers family, the Ed T. Malloy family among other families and individuals.
