If you’ve ever noticed the beautiful flowers on the street corners in downtown Sanford, you may have noticed the milk jug lady. This is of course our own Helen Hnks.
Helen has been a devoted member of Downtown Sanford Incorporated (DSI) since the mid 1990′s. Although she does not own property or a business in downtown, she still feels that being a part of DSI and helping our downtown grow is very important. When ever there’s a project that needs volunteers….. you’ll find Helen.
The flowers on the corners downtown have always been a challenge for DSI to maintain. Working on a limited budget DSI needed volunteers to help with this project. The job of “flower keeper” in downtown was filled by none other than guess who……….that’s right, Helen Hinks.
If you happen to see Helen carrying her milk jugs filled with water on the streets downtown, please thank her for ALL she does for our city. I for one can’t think of anyone that helps out more and is always there.
Thank you Helen….very much!
If you would like to volunteer to help with any project in downtown Sanford please call DSI Director David Montgomery at 919-775-8332.
