Mem­phrem­a­gog Wa­ter­shed As­so­ci­a­tion helps Ver­mont’s North Coun­try Cham­ber’s Wel­come Cen­ter’s Green Ef­forts!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Dona Ku­lakowski, a Wel­come Cen­ter vol­un­teer has made it her mis­sion to wa­ter and care for the Wel­come Cen­ter’s lovely flower ar­range­ments sup­plied by Spates The Florist. Here Dona is pic­tured fill­ing the wa­ter­ing can from the Mem­phrem­a­gog Wa­ter­shed As­so­ci­a­tion’s (MWA) rain bar­rel that saves town wa­ter by col­lect­ing rain wa­ter for use on plants, lawns and such. The MWA is lend­ing the Wel­come Cen­ter this beau­ti­fully hand-painted rain bar­rel while we sell raf­fle tick­ets to ben­e­fit the as­so­ci­a­tion. In the back­ground can be seen some of the good work the MWA is in­volved with: plant­ings for stream bed ero­sion preven­tion, The Shore­line Restora­tion Pro­ject started in 2009. This work was a fac­tor in keep­ing the Wel­come Cen­ter dry dur­ing the floods of 2011.

If you would like a chance for this rain bar­rel to be in your yard and sup­port the work of the MWA, tick­ets are avail­able at the Wel­come Cen­ter and other venues around the re­gion.
