Mark your calendars! Roll Out the Barrels 2015 takes place on Wednesday, May 27 at Creature Comforts at 4 p.m. 

Local artists turn rain barrels into beautiful pieces of functional art to be auctioned off in support of the Athens Green School Program, an initiative to ensure environmental education is taught in the classroom. Each rain barrel will be available through a silent auction on Wednesday, May 27, 2015 from 4-7:30 p.m. at Creature Comforts. Last Resort will provide appetizers, and BorderHop Five will provide the entertainment at this family-friendly event. 
Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water and reduce stormwater runoff.

Contact Anna Truszczynski at for more information. This event is brought to you by the Stormwater Management Program and the Water Conservation Office, with support from Athens Paint & Body, Creature Comforts, Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful, and Last Resort.
