ROSELLE/ELIZABETH, NJ - Children ages 4 to 12 years old are invited by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders to participate in the third annual Paint by the Pond”. A project that teaches families about the importance of recycling while encouraging children to paint on cardboard, creating art from materials usually thrown away.

There will also be miniature houses made with the cardboard boxes floating in the pond at Warinanco Park during the event.

“This year we will be back at the pond at Warinanco Park where young artists will be able to capture the glorious colors of spring,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados.
