From start to finish it took her
nine months to complete the bag.

Bryant, came across an Elvis
Presley picture in a waiting room

would love this. She's an Elvis
Presley fan." He tore the picture
out and brought it to her.
George said, 1 his is a round
picture, what am I going to do
with this Sam?" She then decided
to make it into a purse and came
up with ideas for the other side.
Her daughter Johnnie liked her
idea to make a purse and she
bought her the cut beads to start

The Housing department's work group, with the assistance of tribal
sanitarian Nancy Collins, has taken the initiative to designate the entire
month of April as the time for the annual "Springs Clean Up" for our
April 1 to 4 "Garbage Bounty Week"
We have set a goal of 1,000 bags of garbage to be picked up in
the month of April. The Housing department will provide five
garbage bags (free of charge) to individuals for picking up
garbage along side our units or along the roadside. If all goes
well and wc find the financial support, we will then pay a bounty
for each bag of garbage collected. We will do our best at keeping
track of who collected the most garbage and at the end of the
month have a grand prize for the most active individual or group.

If people have large items (washer, dryers, couches, etc.) that
they are tired of looking at and would like removed, we will do
our best at getting to your home and take the unwanted items to
April 14 to 18 Tree Limb removal and "Garbage Bounty Week"
The Housing department will be concentrating on West Hills,
Tcnino Apartments, Campus units and the Senior Citizen
units for removal of dead and down tree limbs. We have asked
for assistance from the Fire Management Staff and we are
awaiting their response. Because of the large amount of limbs,
we may try piling and burning of these limbs to reduce our
workload and make our goal easier to achieve.
April 21 to 25 Abandoned Car Roundup and Crushing
The Housing department will be continuing the Abandoned Car
removal project. The Warm Springs Police Department will be
assisting the Housing staff by placing stickers on those cars
deemed "abandoned". If individuals have a car that they would
like removed, contact the Housing department. All cars removed
will be at no cost to the owner.
April 30 "Springs Clean Up" Picnic
The staff is planning a picnic for this day to celebrate our
victory. At this time, awards (donated by local merchants) will
be given to the individuals or groups who have taken the most
active role in the "Springs Clean Up" project. The picnic will be
held at the Housing office.
The Housing staff is committed to making a strong effort in
carrying out the "Action Part" of our plan. If you are interested in
volunteering, would like to sponsor a prizemake a donation or have
different ideas that would help us, please contact the Housing
department at 553-3250.
