The record high prices in January were a result of the avian flu outbreak wiping out a significant amount of egg producing poultry. Supplies were low.

Lufkin held their annual walk at the Ellen Trout Zoo to raise awareness and funds. Alzheimer’s Association volunteer Corey Marshall said spreading awareness through this walk is near and dear to her heart.
