From staff reports

The chapter house of  the Vicksburg Area Red Cross at 908 Cherry St. will be closed this week because the building’s air conditioning went out.

The central air conditioning system is at least 10 years old, director Beverly Connelly estimated, and might be past the point of repair.

Connelly said the board of directors will look into options before installing a new system.

It has not yet been determined if the building will stay closed after this week.
