    I was looking at the mintues from the Bethel Town Council from April 2013 and it had an article about Rain Barrels: June 1st. It stated that the NWA will provide participants with a 4-gallon rain barrel with all hardware. The time is 10 am to 12 pm this coming Saturday at the Town Park. Prior registration is required and to contact Beth Wasden. I do not see anything on the website to register. We currently live in Bethel and very interested.

    Please register us and if you have any additional information it would be greatly appreciated.
