Cheverly Town Park Pavilion
Have a healthier lawn/garden, clean up the Anacostia, and save money,
all at the same time. Craig Tupper will help you assemble your own
rain barrel(s), for a fraction of the cost of commercial units. The
cost will be $30 to $45 per 55-gallon barrel, depending on the
customization you want for your rain barrel. Maximum of two per
person. A second barrel that will be attached to the first will only
be an additional $12. This is a great savings. Comparable
commercial rain barrels start at $130 to $160. Openings are limited
so register today by calling Craig at 773-4386, or
