HELENA — The Helena Education Foundation and Downtown Helena, Inc.— along with Helena’s Public Schools,— are joining forces to honor all those who are working so hard to bring us safely through this pandemic tunnel and to brighten the long winter nights that lie ahead.

This effort is named Lights On, Helena!, and as part of this, we'd like to introduce Luminaria Night.

On the night of February 14, let’s unite as a community and show our love and support for our health care workers, teachers, first responders, and others on the front line, by lighting luminarias throughout the county!

6 piece luminaria kits are being assembled by the Boy Scouts, and will be available starting Monday morning, at Allegra Marketing, 40 W. Lawrence Ave.

If your business would like to help distribute these kits, please contact Doug Wheeler at

A donation of $4 is helpful, which covers the actual cost of materials for the 6 piece luminaria kit.

Lights On, Helena!
