Soon there will be bright and colorful signs advertising rain barrels around Bay Village. My classmates and I made them because my teacher, Mrs. Fisher, and everyone in my class (including me) is trying to help people in Bay learn about conserving water with rain barrels.
Our Mission Statement is: To educate Bay citizens about conserving water by using rain barrels. We plan to sell rain barrels to businesses and citizens. So far we have around 12 rain barrels. We have painted them blues and greens and are going to put different designs to match your garden on them.
The rain barrels and/or posters will be displayed at Huntington Bank, Heinen's, Georgio's, Dairy Queen, True Value Hardware, City Hall, Key Bank, PNC Bank, BAYarts, Bay Library, Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, and Java Bay. The students in my class wrote letters to those businesses requesting them to let us display posters and rain barrels.
They sent us an email at our email address: email@example.com. Then, we went to their business to have them sign a contract. Most of them did and then it was a done deal. After we met with them and let them sign the contract, we wrote a thank you letter to them, thanking them for spending time with us.
