This is the seventh year of the rain barrel program offered by CROW.  Above, Diane Sander stands in front of about 149 barrels that were recently delivered to the Delano pick-up point.  Sander took 10 of the barrels to the USDA building in Buffalo, where her office is located.  (Photos by Ed DuBois)
