The Havre High School Key Club, among the most active and distinguished in Montana in recent years, got a jump on its school-year projects at the school Sunday and Monday.
About 10 Key Clubbers held a campus beautification day Sunday in anticipation of the start of school Thursday. They returned to the school grounds late Monday afternoon to finish their work.
The crew began its work at about 11 a.m. Sunday, painting large blue hoof prints down Bullhook Road from Rods Drive to the school. They painted the horseshoes all the way to the west foyer entrance to the gym and theatre wing. They also painted two Blue Pony mascots on the sidewalks.
Entering Pony Country is the theme, said junior Jennie Peterson, Key Club reporter.
Club members also constructed an HHS display in a wooden mound on the corner boulevard closest to the band room entrance.
Its like a renovation project for the next few years; were going to be adding flowers, Peterson said. Its a beautification project and landscaping and things like that.
Those who helped with the project were club president Ali Evans, vice president Lindsey Brandt, secretary Erin Lynch, and members Nick Newell, Jesse Suek, Jason Bowker, Cliff Cunningham, Nancy Cline, and Stacey Siebrasse, LaShae Michels, and Peterson.
Peterson said the club owes a great thanks to Coast to Coast for all of its donations and patience, and Murray Barkus, and also to Kmart and Havre Ready Mix.
Havre High Key Club, one of the perennial powerhouses in the state, performs dozens of services for the community and school throughout the year.
