Volunteers included Tyler Cole, Rochelle and Mike Ulleg, Krista Krogel, Lisa Quiroz and Pastor Linda Jackson. Krista Krogel and Rochelle Ulleg are DDA Board members, Tyler, Mike, Lisa and Pastor Linda Jackson are among those who volunteered taking pride in their community. In all 14 mum plants were re-potted into the terra-cotta planters which had previously held summer flowers. This hard working group of volunteers worked efficiently by completing this task in less than two hours. Mike and Rochelle own Robert Michael Salon & Spa, Krista and Tyler are from the Flower Basket, Lisa is a partner at Some Things Different and Pastor Linda is an Associate Pastor from the River Church. Please be sure to thank these hard working volunteers for their handy work.
