HCC Is At The Movies

HCC is at the movies! This summer HCC has an advertisement at the Allegany, AMC Movie Theater!  If you are at the movies and see our ad please let us know on social media. This will help create a community effort to spread the message for youth to  “Have a Safe Summer”  without the use of alcohol and others substances!
