The SVA is hosting a rain barrel sale this spring, as part of a fundraising program. The barrels are sturdy and come complete with a leaf and mosquito filter basket, an overflow adaptor that permits multiple barrels to be connected in series, 1.2 m. of of overflow hose and a spigot that attaches directly to a garden hose. Additional overflow hose can also be purchased if necessary. The price is $55 per barrel, and proceeds go toward supporting SVA events in the community, such as Artists & Authors in the Park, Canada Day celebrations, VillageFest, and Parade of Lights. We have set up an online ordering page (http://rainbarrel.ca/stittsville), or face-to-face/telephone orders may be placed through Tanya Hein, Secretary, Stittsville Village Association, at 613-686-1842. The barrel distribution date is set for April 28th, and will take place at Stittsville Sobey's on Hazeldean Road.
