Hospice youth bring Valentine cheer

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"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. 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
