Events of Interest

There is a lot happening in Helena, so this is just a quick roundup of some interesting events that I am currently aware of.

Belly Fillers is a new sandwich shop in the Jet Pep station on Highway 17 next to the Regions Bank.  You can check out their offerings at their new web site

And a new Italian restaurant, Lucia's Italian, will be opening soon in Riverwoods.  There is a banner on the building, but I don't have any details on exactly when they will be opening.

I've lived in Helena for nearly 21 years and Movie Gallery has always been here, first in The Shoppes at Dearing Downs and then in the Winn Dixie shopping center.  Well, Movie Gallery is closing and they are selling everything in the store including DVD racks.

Consignment Sale:
The Church at Cahaba Bend is having a "New 2 You" Spring Children's Consignment Sale!  Registration begins for consignors on February 1 (open to the public!) and the sale will be on Friday and Saturday, March 5 & 6.  The hours are Friday, 9:00am-7:00pm, and Saturday, 9:00am-1:00pm.

Everyone is welcome, prices are low, and they are one of the only consignment sales left in Shelby County!  The church is located on Highway 52 across the street from Helena Intermediate School.
Saturday is also 50% off day! Most items will be 50% off (as marked by seller on the tags).  You can check their web for details -

Reading Event:
The Big Read, brought to us by The National Endowment for the Arts, is designed to encourage everyone to read for pleasure and enlightenment. The selection for this year is Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain.  The Helena Public Library has some great events scheduled in partnership with The Big Read, beginning with their Big Kick-off on Febuary 15 at 6:00 PM.  None other than Mark Twain himself will be here in Helena!  He will talk to us about his life, and there will be a cake as well.  Everyone is welcome, so please come join us!  Reading is so essential and this type of activity will help to instill the importance of reading in our children.

Buck Creek Civitan:
The Buck Creek Civitan meets the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month at Helena United Methodist Church in the Youth Room on the second floor.  Social time starts at 6:00 pm and the meeting begins around 6:30 pm.  There are a lot of activities planned for the spring and they need YOUR help to make things happen in our community.  Consider making the Civitan a part of your life.

For Older Adults:
The Helena Fire Department is offering "Remembering When: a fire and fall prevention for older adults", on Saturday, February 27 from 10 am to noon.  The event will be held at the senior citizens building and it is free.  If you have questions, please contact Lt. Heath Bartlett at 212-8186 or

So a lot of things happening in our community!
