Bell-ringers are stationed at 18 sites throughout Lawrence. The official kickoff is 11 a.m. Friday at Firstar Bank, Ninth and Massachusetts streets. __________________________ Charity: Salvation Army requests 50 washable blankets The Salvation Army needs blankets to warm the homeless persons who stay at its overnight shelter.
