The HHHS Key Club braved the cold, wind, mist and overall miserable weather to participate in the local Harker Heights Texas Trash-off to help keep our community clean. They had some unusual finds. Look closely, they are holding a harmless snake. They called the Pet Adoption Center and it will be moved to a safe location.
