Rotaract Club Adds Color to Green Initiative

Students from Trinity’s Rotaract Club took part in a rain barrel art project on May 2, which launched a community initiative jointly sponsored by the Village of Orland Park and the Rotary Club of Orland Park. The initiative will promote the use of plastic rain barrels as a “green” practice to cut waste water and recycle rain water for home and garden use.

A limited number of rain barrels decorated by students at Trinity, as well as students at Century Junior High School in Orland Park, will be auctioned off during a Market Days event. Rain barrels are a simple, efficient, low-cost method for homeowners to collect and recycle water.

“We are doing this activity as part of Rotaract but thought today would be a good day to paint the barrels in conjunction with the Love Palos event,” said club chairman Brenda Roethel ’09 of Oostburg, Wisconsin.

The rain barrels will be auctioned off on Sunday, June 28, at noon at the Open Lands Garden Walk, Orland Park Civic Center, 147th and Ravinia.
