A Festival for May at Camlann
In the back of many people's memories is a childhood experience of dancing and weaving in and out around a maypole, holding a colorful ribbon. You celebrate May and experience this tradition again, as well as many more, on May 3-4, from 1 to 6 p.m., at the Camlann Medieval Village in Carnation. Merry 14th and 15th Century English music, dancing, games, and feasting are in order. The games begin at 1 p.m. and include longbow archery contests, nine-man-morris, chess, and more. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for 60 plus and 12-under, under 5 free. Authentic food will be served all day. Reservations are required, however, for the evening's special 14th century feast, which is $35 each including festival admission. Call 788-8624. Camlann is located at 10320 Kelly Rd. NE three miles north of Carnation.
Letter carrier food drive begins
The National Letter Carrier Food Drive is Saturday, May 10. This is a voluntary program and not all letter carriers participate. Because of increased customer response, the Duvall Post Office is asking that those who wish to donate to please bring the donations to the post office, since space in the carriers' vehicles is limited. Those who cannot visit the post office may still give their donations to their rural carrier. Starting on Monday, May 5, a container will be provided in the Duvall Post Office lobby during normal business hours.
Walk for Life
The Walk for Life and Candlelight Remembrance to kick off National Suicide Prevention Week will be held May 3. The event is a one-mile walk beginning at the Center for Wooden Boats.

Participants are asked to bring shoes representing their lost loved ones. The shoes will be placed together to illustrate the many lives that are lost to suicide every year. For information, call 461-3210.
