CALLING ALL ARTISTS!
Please consider helping us with Geneva’s annual “Rain Barrels on Parade.”
The Geneva NRC (Natural Resources Committee) is still looking for artistic members of our community to donate their time and talents by painting a barrel for us to showcase around Geneva. Rain barrels eventually will be auctioned off, and the money collected will go straight toward the purchase of MORE GENEVA TREES!
Will you paint one for us?
