Community Meeting - Highlands!

In case you have ever been concerned about water pollution in Highlands, be sure not to miss the community meeting this Saturday, July 17th.  It will be held at Highlands United Methodist Church, 107 W Houston St. at 2pm. The meeting was originally scheduled to be held at Stratford, but, due to space issues, is moving just down the road. 

The meeting will be concerning the cleanup of the San Jacinto River Waste Pits Cleanup. You will learn of ways you can be involved in the cleanup process as well as how to protect yourself from potential health risks.
