Community, and high school artists have come together to create Caledon’s outstanding 2013 Rain Barrel Art Collection.
We had an over whelming response, Toronto and Region Conservation & ecoCaledon would like to thank you all for taking an interest and supporting our one-of-a-kind, hand painted Art Collection.
These rain barrels were auctioned off to the community to raise funds in support of the Carol Seglins Environmental Bursary while raising awareness about water conservation. All proceeds from your purchase of a 2013 Artist Collection rain barrel will help to provide one deserving graduate from each of the four Caledon high schools a bursary of $400 to assist in their continuing education in an environmental field.
We would like to thank the twenty artists, students and creative Caledonians that were chosen to create one-of-kind artistic rain barrels for Paint a Picture for Water Conservation.
The Artist’s Rain Barrel Collection was displayed at various locations within the Caledon community from May 15th – June 14th. All barrels were on display at Caledon Day on June 15th. Participating locations included: Trailside Café, Foodland Caledon East, Caledon Town Hall, Davis Feed, Zehrs Bolton, Home Depot Bolton, Canadian Tire Bolton, Glen Echo Nursery, Chic-a-Boom, and library branches throughout the Town. Thank you to all of our participating locations, we truly appreciate your support!
A special thanks to The Home Depot and Greer’s Auto Collision, Bolton, Ontario.
