Ziegler and Weber each worked on separate projects at Washington and Burns transformed the circle in front of the high school auditorium.

"I actually walked through the area in the back of Washington, where Andrew Ziegler did his work and it looks fantastic," LaSusa said.

Burns cleaned up the circle are in front of the auditorium at CHS. He repaired two damaged benches and built one by hand.

Ziegler made three benches and placed them near the playground in the back of the school. He also made improvement to the landscape by planting perennials and bushes. Burns  worked on the area between two wings of the school, trimming back a tree that reaches the roof, mulching and adding plants. He also built a large bench for the area.
