South Cottonwood 4-H members were doing their part Monday to keep the city of Hillsboro looking cheery during the spring and summer months by planting a mixture of salvia and vinca flowers outside city hall on Grand Avenue. According to Jana Dalke, club leader, this is the first year the 4-H youth have taken on the project at that location. Assisting Dalke are Ellie Just, Hannah Bartel, Amanda Bartel, Jessi Dalke, Eli Dalke and Savannah Siyajuck of Shawnee, who is visiting her grandmother, Shirley Suderman. Jana Dalke said the reason for choosing these two varieties was because both can handle “hot spots” and when in bloom offer bright, colorful flowers.
