1,000 Daffodils

The Helena beautification board along with volunteers planted 1000 daffodil bulbs at the Welcome Center on Saturday. “This is a part of our overall beautification effort in the city” said Beautification Board Secretary Ana Baker. “Daffodils are among the easiest to grow bulbs are low maintenance and bring a big splash of color. We are encouraging every Helena resident and business to plant daffodils in their front yards and at their businesses. Come Spring, stand back and behold the color!”

Best Decorated House in Helena – 2013

Congratulations to the Goins Family of 1941 Riva Ridge Road, winners of the 2013 Best Decorated House in Helena Contest.  “It was quite difficult to come up with a winner. All of the houses nominated are worthy of accolades for their stunning displays of holiday lights. It’s a magical time of the year and all those whose houses were entered certainly put in a lot of hard work and effort. Each decorated home adds to the magic of Christmas for children of all ages” said Helena Beautification Board Chairman, Chris VanCleave. He added that as a child growing up in Tennessee, one of the highlights of each year was riding around with his family looking at the lights in their Nashville neighborhood. “I want to encourage all Helena residents to jump in the car and drive around and look at all the lights this year. It’s a surefire way to put you in the holiday spirit, VanCleave said. The Goins family was awarded a special Christmas ornament to commemorate this event and wanted to wish all their friends and neighbors a very Merry Christmas.
