Morton Ranch High School hosted its 7th annual Black History Pro-
gram on February 16th. This year’s theme, “HEROES,” paid homage
to the student’s heroes within their lives - whether a past historical
figure that paved a way for them to have a better today or someone
within their family that is their constant cheerleader. Student per-
formances ranged from original poetry works, lyrical and hip-hop
dances, skits and songs.

home church and fill them with change, bills and checks during
the month long event. This event spotlights the extensive resources
that Pregnancy Help Center provides to residents of 3 counties who
are faced with circumstances surrounding a present, potential or
former pregnancy.                                                                                                          Lawn & Landscape

well as limited ultrasound, and help with maternity clothing and
baby items are just some of the services that the Center provides
to their clients.

anyone interested in participating should contact the center at 281-                                   281-861-6611                                                              *

578-0078, please ask for Lisa. If you happen to have a bottle out                             
from 2011, please know that Father’s Day would be a great time
to add to it and return it to Pregnancy Help Center.

We would like to extend our thanks, in advance, to our life saving
churches, their parishioners and congregations for their gifts. Thank
you for treasuring life thru the gifts of your treasure.

                                                 We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor
                                                 of chiropractic can help my problem?”
                                                 We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and
                                                 examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete
