Yesterday afternoon I had the privilege of sharing a few minutes with Leadership Anne Arundel Flagship class of 2009 at their Environmental Day. It was being held at Arlington Echo with the wonderful staff there helping out and some great speakers. One of the artist who has participated in our Rain Barrel event from the very beginning had provided us with a beautiful painted barrel that we auctioned off.
We were able to announce the following:
In 2009 we are expanding our program to involve more schools including Rolling Knolls Elementary.
Our auction and awareness day will be held at Arlington Echo.
All of the proceeds of the auction will benefit Arlington Echo and their education efforts.
One more note on this project. Recently we were able to assist the Children’s Museum of Washington DC to do some painted barrels that were part of the Green Expo on November 8,9 at the convention center in DC. They have offered to partner with us on creating barrels in 2009 and we will be working together on bringing this program to Prince George’s County Schools.
