Modify Powershell script to send .html attachments

I would like to modify the script so that any html files it finds at this path:
that start with "Desktop-123-Files.... "...
Are sent as attachments with the email.

If there are 2 or 3 html files that all start with the designation above, they should be sent as attachments.
Is this possible?

#Send Email 
$EncryptedCredential = "C:\creds\creds.txt" 
$EmailUsername = "email1@email.com" 
$EncryptedPW = Get-Content $EncryptedCredential | ConvertTo-SecureString 
$Credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PsCredential($EmailUsername, $EncryptedPW) 
$EmailFrom = "email1@email.com" 
$EmailTo = "email1@email.com"
$SMTPServer = "smtp.smtp.com" 
$SMTPPort = 123
$subject = "Files Processed"
$SMTPSsl = $true 
$param = @{ 
    SmtpServer = $SMTPServer 
    Port = $SMTPPort 
    UseSsl = $SMTPSsl      
    Credential = $Credential     
    From = $EmailFrom

Send-mailmessage accepts an array of stings for the file attachments so you would need to pass it an array.
for example
$File1 = "C:\Users\User1\Desktop\Path\test.html"
$File2 = "C:\Users\User1\Desktop\Path\test2.html"

So first you would search the directory for the name pattern your looking for and pass the returned values into an array that you use for attachments .
Then add the attachments parameter to your script then set attachments to the array.
$param = @{ 
    SmtpServer = $SMTPServer 
    Port = $SMTPPort 
    UseSsl = $SMTPSsl      
    Credential = $Credential     
    From = $EmailFrom      
    To = $EmailTo   
    Subject = $subject
    Attachments = $Attachment

Scripting Languages

A scripting language is a programming language that supports scripts, programs written for a special run-time environment that automate the execution of tasks that could alternatively be executed one-by-one by a human operator. Scripting languages are often interpreted (rather than compiled). Primitives are usually the elementary tasks or API calls, and the language allows them to be combined into more complex programs. Environments that can be automated through scripting include software applications, web pages within a web browser, the shells of operating systems (OS), embedded systems, as well as numerous games. A scripting language can be viewed as a domain-specific language for a particular environment; in the case of scripting an application, this is also known as an extension language.
