Get out the Vote

The Public Affairs department is organizing their final door knocking efforts encouraging people to vote and reminding them that ballots are due next Tuesday, November 4. They will be out in the community door knocking tonight at 5:30pm and Saturday from 1pm-5pm. Door knocking is a great outreach effort to get voters to turn in their ballots (and a good way to get some exercise!).

The Public Affairs department needs your help. Their goal is to reach 200 doors to remind people to turn in their ballot. They will also drop off their flier for the November 4th Ballot Party at the Tribal Gym from 12pm-5pm on November 4th.

Door knockers will meet at the Quil Ceda Village Administration Building for both door knocking attempts. Thursday they will meet at 5pm and Saturday they will meet at 12:30pm.

Mytyl Hernandez can provide maps and a script for anyone interested in helping. Please email Mytyl or call Theresa Sheldon at (425) 508-6556 to volunteer.

October is SIDS Awareness Month

October is SIDS awareness month. SIDS stands for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. SIDS occurs when an apparently healthy baby aged one month to a year dies suddenly and without cause while asleep. SIDS is the leading cause of death among one month to one year olds. As the name suggests, SIDS can occur at any time without obvious warning signs. Here are some precautions to reduce the risk of SIDS. Provide good medical care and adequate nutrition during pregnancy. Keep the baby in a smoke free environment as secondhand smoke is a reliable contributor to SIDS. Breastfeeding, minimal blankets and pillows in the crib, and putting the baby to sleep on their back all decrease the risk for SIDS.
