Helena Happenings this Weekend
If you have some more weekend events in Helena then send me an email and I will update...
Congrats to Laura Brookhart who is a Helena resident as well as a local news reporter. She has won the 4th Annual SCAC Juried Art Exhibit Best of Photography with the above creation called Daylily Frenzy. I would be willing to bet that the inspiration for this art piece came from Helena's Dancing Daylily Farm. Not only does Laura cover local events for the media, she contribute her spare time to helping local events like the Helena Farmer Market. She is truly a giver to the community and I am proud to call her a friend.
Business Goodbye Sale
I hate to be the bearing of bad news right after sharing about La Reunion's closing but Jeffrey emailed me and said that Avalon Blue Interiors, formerly know as Showhouse Furniture will be closing.
"We appreciate all our Helena and surrounding areas for right at 16 years of business. We will be liquidating starting this Friday (10-4pm), Saturday(9am-till whenever) and Sunday (12-4). Just wanted you to know and we hope to see you this weekend".
I really didnt want to see them go. Last year I bought all my living furniture from them and got a better price than I could at any furniture store. They are sure to have some awesome deals so stop by there and see what they have going.
The Helena Athletic Assoc will have a Board meeting this Sunday 7pm at the Depot. They will be talking about a Pancake Breakfast and the Panther Prowl
Little Italy and JDRF
Katie and a group of her friends are having a fundraiser at Little Italy Pizza this Friday night from 5-9 to raise money for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.

This year she wanted to do more to raise money.So if you don't have any dinner plans then swing by there on Friday night and enjoy the pizza buffet.
