In the heart of Helena, Alabama, where community bonds are cherished and celebrated, we find ourselves overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible events that have unfolded recently. From the joyous Easter Egg Hunt to the delectable Taste of Helena, and the upcoming milestones like the graduation of our seniors and the groundbreaking ceremony for our new City Hall, each occasion is a testament to the spirit of unity and dedication that defines our beloved city.

First and foremost, we extend our sincerest thanks to the amazing Old Town Church volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure the success of our annual Easter Egg Hunt. Their commitment, enthusiasm and hard work made the event a resounding success, bringing smiles to the faces of children and families throughout our community. Their selfless dedication embodies the true spirit of Helena, where neighbors come together to create unforgettable experiences for all to enjoy.

A special round of applause goes to Council Member Hal Woodman and all the volunteers who contributed to the success of the inaugural Taste of Helena event. Their passion for showcasing our local culinary delights and fostering a sense of camaraderie among residents and visitors alike truly made the event a highlight of our city’s calendar. Their vision and hard work have undoubtedly left a lasting impression on our community, and we are immensely grateful for their efforts.

As we celebrate the accomplishments of our community, we also pause to congratulate all the graduating seniors of Helena. Your hard work, perseverance, and dedication have not gone unnoticed. Each of you has demonstrated exceptional talent and potential, and we have no doubt that your future endeavors will be met with great success. As you embark on this new chapter of your lives, remember that Helena stands behind you, cheering you on every step of the way.

The April Old Town Live Concert was such a great experience and is awesome to see our community get out and have fun. The Old Town Live Concert Series has become a strong source of economic impact along with putting Helena on display. May’s show is going to be another great one on May 18 in Amphitheater Park starting at 4:30 p.m. with Taylor Hunnicutt leading up to The Allmen Betts Band.

Looking ahead, we are excited to invite everyone to join us for the groundbreaking ceremony of our new City Hall on Monday, May 13 at 10 a.m. This momentous occasion marks a significant milestone in our city’s growth and development. As we lay the foundation for this new chapter in Helena’s history, we do so with optimism and anticipation for the opportunities and possibilities that lie ahead. Your presence at this event is not only a show of support but also a testament to the strong sense of community that binds us together.

In closing, we extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every member of the Helena community for your unwavering support, dedication and enthusiasm. It is through your collective efforts that our city continues to thrive and prosper. As we reflect on the past events and look forward to the future, let us continue to cherish the bonds that unite us and strive to make Helena an even better place to call home.

Together As One,
