The HHHS Key Club and the EHMS Builders Club students were in the Christmas Spirit this weekend and volunteering in the community. Key Club members worked with the costumed characters at the annual Frost Fest so the children could get their pictures taken with them. Saturday night was the Killeen Christmas Parade and the Builders Club members participated in the parade along with Elsa & Anna from FROZEN. The weather was gorgeous this year and we weren't actually frozen this time.

Members of the EHMS Builders Club and AVID class helped sort over 50,000 lbs of food during the time they were at the Killeen Special Events Center. This is the main collection point where all the local donations are brought to be sorted by each type of food (corn, beans, cereal etc). Then the food is taken to the main warehouse where it will be allocated to families or each of the smaller food banks such as the one in Harker Heights.

Harker Heights Kiwanis Members Dick Dinwiddie, Norm Dunbar, David McClure, Lisa Youngblood & Vivian Marschik along with members of the Eastern Hills Middle School Builders Club and the Harker Heights High School Key Club participated in the 2019 Killeen Veteran's Day Parade. This photo was taken just before the "Fall cold front" blew in. In a matter of minutes everyone was scrambling to get coats, hats, scarves and gloves on. It started sprinkling rain and the wind was blowing all the leaves from trees near by in our faces. In no time it went from the upper 60's into the 40's. The parade started off with a bang! We Texans survived the cold front to finish the parade without losing anyone . :-)

*Flags are not placed out in inclement weather.
American Flag Etiquette
Federal law stipulates many aspects of flag etiquette. The section of law dealing with American Flag etiquette is generally referred to as the Flag Code. Some general guidelines from the Flag Code answer many of the most common questions:
The flag should be lighted at all times, either by sunlight or by an appropriate light source.
The flag should be flown in fair weather, unless the flag is designed for inclement weather use.
The flag should never be dipped to any person or thing. It is flown upside down only as a distress signal.
The flag should not be used for any decoration in general. Bunting of blue, white and red stripes is available for these purposes. The blue stripe of the bunting should be on the top.
The flag should never be used for any advertising purpose. It should not be embroidered, printed or otherwise impressed on such articles as cushions, handkerchiefs, napkins, boxes, or anything intended to be discarded after temporary use. Advertising signs should not be attached to the staff or halyard.
The flag should not be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform, except that a flag patch may be used on the uniform of military personnel, fireman, policeman and members of patriotic organizations.
The flag should never have any mark, insignia, letter, word, number, figure, or drawing of any kind placed on it, or attached to it.
The flag should never be used for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
When the flag is lowered, no part of it should touch the ground or any other object; it should be received by waiting hands and arms. To store the flag it should be folded neatly and ceremoniously.
The flag should be cleaned and mended when necessary.
When a flag is so worn it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner.
