RED SAID WEEK

Barrington 220 is joining many local community organizations in supporting the "My Red Said" project.

Members of the community can pick up a red ribbon between now and Saturday, March 6, then hang the ribbons outside their homes and businesses by Sunday, March 7, 2021, which marks the beginning of My Red Said week.
