Helena-West Helena has never looked prettier for the holidays than this year.
Everywhere you go in town there are beautiful lighted trees, decorations light poles, and animated characters. The Helena-West Helena Advertising and Promotion Commission is primarily responsible for the decorations, and they have done a spectacular job in downtown Helena, Oakland Avenue and Plaza Street.

Helena-West Helena has never looked prettier for the holidays than this year.

Everywhere you go in town there are beautiful lighted trees, decorations light poles, and animated characters. The Helena-West Helena Advertising and Promotion Commission is primarily responsible for the decorations, and they have done a spectacular job in downtown Helena, Oakland Avenue and Plaza Street.

There is even a lighted scene next to the Arkansas Welcome Center that is visible as people come off the bridge. In addition, the A&P Commission is encouraging property owners to decorate by sponsoring the "Decorate Helena-West Helena Contest" for cash prizes. 

Some may think that this not a big deal, or that it is frivolous. But, anything that increases community pride is worth the effort. Our community has its share of problems, but this Christmas our spirits can be lifted by the beauty of the season.

Kudos go out to the A&P Commission and the City of Helena-West Helena for a job well done.
