Bluegrass PRIDE - Personal Responsibility In a Desirable Environment - is sponsoring "Roll Out the Rain Barrels" as a fund-raiser and part of the Storm Water Awareness Campaign. Local artists have decorated 35 rain barrels to be auctioned at PRIDE's annual meeting June 30 at the Sheraton French Quarter Suites in Lexington. Until then, barrels will be displayed at locations throughout central Kentucky.
PRIDE is currently selling undecorated barrels for $160 and plastic barrels for $115. Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve, and Toyota as well as Ale-8-One and Lexington Brewing Co. donated barrels.
