Youth Heart of Hospice (YoHOHs) and Heart of Hospice volunteers decorated heart-shaped cookies for their YoHOH Valentine’s Day outing delivering to hospice patients in the Hood River area.
The group sang songs and engaged patients in a conversation and embrace. A student who recently relocated to the area had this perspective:
“I really loved my experience with patients, to exchange a smile, hold a hand, to be warmly welcomed into the lives of patients, perhaps unfamiliar when we arrive, old friends by the time we leave.
“I’m thankful to have had this opportunity. I can’t wait for our St. Patrick’s Day outing.”

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
