And I love being so close to Franklin Park Conservatory! Olde Towne East is changing for the better, and it helps that I know all my neighbors. ” –Dakota Green

Huge thanks to Ann Heffernan, Jeff Hamilton, Stacy Nickerson Dunbar, Nicholas Wawrzyniak, Troy Timbrook, Bryan Curtiss, Kurt Hummel, a Fort Hayes HS student and sorority from The Ohio State University for helping during the highway ramp cleanup.
