      Wear Red for Women on Friday, Feb. 3
      Heart disease is the number 1 killer of women in the USA, and kills more
      women than men. Wear Red Day calls this to your attention - are you at
      risk?

      NW Tulip Trekkers - Bald Eagle Festival Weekend.
      Come for a weekend of Fun, Fitness, Friendship & Food
      Festival Fun: There are many interesting speakers at the High School
      throughout the festival as well as kids activities. Take a guided bus
      tour with a Eagle specialist on board to interpret ($5 donation
      suggested; Reservation suggested.)
      The Bald Eagle Festival is spread out through several towns and spots in
      the Upper Skagit Valley. The prime eagle viewing spots are only a few
      miles up the road (location of our Eagles in Rockport walk). We
      encourage you to visit all of the festival locations.
      Remember: If it is a sunny day, you will have a beautiful day for a
      walk. If it is cloudy, you will probably see lots of eagles as they are
      more likely to be perched in trees rather than soaring. For more Eagle
      Festival Information visit www.skagiteagle.org
