The highlight of the week was the Warm Springs community coming out to thank in person the Warm Springs Health and Wellness Center staff, both Indian Health Service and Tribal Health. We all cheered when two jets flew over to thank them for their work and as a reminder of meaning of Memorial day.- “Memorial Day weekend is upon us. Please take some time to reflect and remember our fallen service men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for country. Wishing you and your family a safe and blessed weekend.” Hyllis Dauphinais
