The Downtown Flower Project is once again up and “growing” thanks to the help of two groups of volunteers who installed the baskets on a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon. WHS athletes, coaches and community members included Tanner Scheetz, Easton Darling, Ethan Safford, Sam Schrodt, Brayden Dinkla, Zeke Hoven, Parker Henry, Josh Henry, Gary Emmert, Stuart Hoven , Reilly Hoven, Justin Hackett, Blake Bellamy, and Levi Gurwell.
