Tenawa is a natural gas processing plant. Construction of the processing plant is located south of the Haven Panhandle Eastern facility on Kent Road. This location was chosen because of 3 different pipelines that run through this area. The pipes run from Texas through Oklahoma. The plant will process 1.3 billion cubic feet of gas a day. The process will cool the gas and extract various liquids, which will be sold to different industries.
The plant will start construction soon and will create 12 to 15 new jobs for the area when completed.

American Red Cross Blood Drive at St. Paul Lutheran Church
Support the Red Cross, help patients by giving blood
March is Red Cross Month
WICHITA, Kan. — Across the country, the American Red Cross is reminding communities that March is Red Cross Month. In the U.S., nearly 5 million patients need blood transfusions every year. By making an appointment to give blood this month, eligible donors can help the Red Cross meet patient needs.
“The Red Cross relies on the support of the American public to provide all of the services we offer,” said Patricia Quinn, CEO of the Red Cross Central Plains Blood Services Region. “By giving blood, you support the Red Cross and help patients in need.”
March was initially declared Red Cross Month in 1943, when then-President Franklin Roosevelt reminded Americans the Red Cross is committed to providing blood products, disaster relief and emergency social services across the U.S. and internationally.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities:
Monday, March 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at St Paul Lutheran Church, 8513 E. Arlington Rd., Haven, KS 67543
How to donate blood
Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
About the American Red Cross
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Haven High School FFA Pancake Feed Benefits Ronald McDonald House
Haven High School FFA put on a pancake feed for Community Appreciation at the Haven Senior Center Saturday night. Every year the FFA Club chooses a benefit to raise money for. This year they chose the Ronald McDonald House in Wichita. The students worked hard this year by selling fruits and meats as a fundraiser for the club. The sausage that was served was a product from that fundraiser. Due to the great response by the community they were able to fund this dinner. All free will donations went to the Ronald McDonald House.
