Rain Barrel Reception has Rolled Out Until Next Year
Despite the wind and the rain, many people came out to Bluegrass Greensource’s Roll Out the Rain Barrel Reception on Friday, June 20th at the Fifth Third Bank Pavilion. An excited group of supporters were on site to view the wonderful artistic rain barrels, mingle with our featured local artists and vote on their favorite rain barrel.
Music was provided by the Big Maracas for the event, local beer and wine was on hand and art teacher Miles Johnson, was also there to paint a rain barrel with the help of some of our youngest artists.
An original Enrique Gonzalez painted rain barrel, portraying a beautiful peacock, was the hot raffle ticket item. The winner of our on-site rain barrel vote was Nectar, painted by local artist Agustin Zarate and our over-all rain barrel vote winner was Down on the Farm, painted by local artist Roni Gilpin.
The funds raised will support Bluegrass Greensources’ many outreach programs which focus on water stewardship, energy conservation and waste/litter reduction. Another popular program, the Rain Barrel Workshops, illustrate the importance of water conservation and demonstrate how easy it is to make one of your own.
We would not have had such a successful without the support of our sponsors: Kentucky American Water, Stites & Harbison, and Paint Solutions Auto Body,
