Stained Glass to be Featured
David Schlueter, who is a Helena resident and owns Buck Creek Stained Glass in Old Town Helena, received a message from London England yesterday. It was from the Photographic Director of Elle magazine which is part of Hearst Magazine. They are doing feature on the stained glass in the home and David's creation was chosen. So Buck Creek Stained Glass is about to get some international exposure. Congrats to David and we look forward to seeing the magazine spread.
Best Decorated House in Helena
Today begins our annual blog contest of Best Halloween House in Helena. Here's how it works. You nominate via email the best Halloween decorations in Helena before Friday October 26th. It could be your house or a house you drive by everyday. I just need an address but I would love to have a picture if possible.
Finally on the weekend before Halloween, we send out a crew of volunteer judges to go grade those homes and choose the winner. The winner gets an award and everyone get to know the addresses of the scariest houses in Helena to visit. Past champions have been in the neighborhoods of Braelinn, Old Cahaba, Riverwoods, and Fieldstone. Will your home be the next grand champion?!?!
I am reposting this because Freddy is still lost. He was wearing a red color but his tag fell off. He is a beagle, a sweet dog and last seen in Wyndham. If you have seen him then Holly's number is 410-3219 and Jason is 807-3479
Congrats Pelham High School JV on winning against Homewood 21 to 14
