Highland Heights United Methodist Church recently consecrated a collection of items for the â€śSamaritan Hospitality Houseâ€ť located in Colorado City. It ministers to families who are visiting loved ones incarcerated in local prisons. With a homelike atmosphere, the â€śHouseâ€ť provides weekend lodging for family members during their stay free of charge. A field trip is scheduled Friday, November 19th, to deliver the collection. Congregational members are pictured above holding samples of collected items.
The winners of the HOBY (Hugh Oâ€™Brian Youth Leadership) Award were announced last week, at Sweetwtaer High School. The winner was Mackensey Hayes and runner up was Madison Meneses. The winners were selected after submitting a 100-word essay on leadership. A selection committee narrowed down the top ten finalists, which then went through a questionare filled out by the SHS faculty.
