The Buena Vista County Soil and Water Conservation District again sponsored a rain barrel painting contest held during the Buena Vista County Fair. This year's winning club was the Fairfield Pioneers led by Melissa Fahr. Each club was given a 55 gallon, white, recycled barrel and paints. The rain barrels were judged by BV SWCD commissioners and staff. They were judged on originality and neatness. The Pioneers will receive a pizza party donated by the Soil & Water Conservation District. The rain barrels were auctioned off during the fair with all the proceeds going back to the 4H general fund.
