Who are the Belles?The ‘Helena Belles’ is a service organization, derived from the traditional Southern Belles in the South, that helps young women get involved in the Helena community. Exemplary young ladies who are in high school and residents of Helena, Alabama are invited to apply to become a Helena Belle for their High School years.
Helena Belles must be of good character, have a pleasant personality, be enrolled in school, maintain good grades for their entire term and enjoy the civic responsibility of serving their city and local charities.
Each Belle is required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of community service through the organization each year and is required to attend the Annual Garden Party in which they will be presented to the City of Helena. Belles are expected to conduct themselves in a way that will bring honor to the program.
