Eighth grade students at Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Cheektowaga recently participated in the Erie County Department of Environment & Planning’s 2014 Earth Day Rain Barrel Painting Contest. The theme of the contest was “Rainwater is a Resource, Not Just Runoff.”

Rain barrels are used to collect and store rainwater from roofs that would otherwise flow across lawns, driveways, roads and parking lots, picking up dirt, oil, fertilizers and other chemicals along the way. The rain barrels used in the contest were converted from 35-gallon syrup concentrate drums donated by the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Buffalo. Other sponsors of the event were the Western New York Stormwater Coalition and the Erie County Water Quality Committee.

MQA students decorated their rain barrel with a four seasons theme. The rain barrel will now be utilized by the school for years to come.

Mary Queen of Angels School is located at 170 Rosewood Terrace. For more information about the school or to schedule a tour or shadowing opportunity, visit www.mqangels.com or call the school office at 895-6280.
