Seeing Red…
The annual Go Red for Women breakfast was held at the Springfield Sheraton on Tuesday, Feb. 14.

Blood pressure screenings were one of the features of the Go Red breakfast on Valentines Day, as was a heart healthy menu, a moving speech from a cardiovascular disease survivor, and giveaways from some of the events sponsors.

This balloon heart at the Springfield Sheraton not only heralded the Valentines Day holiday, but also Go Red for Women, celebrated for the entire month of February across the country.
