2009 Tampa Bay Sierra Club Holiday Party and Awards Banquet

Wednesday, December 10, 2009

Tireless Tampa Bay Sierra Group Chairperson, Bev Griffiths, having attended an EPC Workshop earlier that day at the Hillsborough County Center in support of a summer fertilizer ban and 'stylin a new do,' presented several awards at the 2009 Tampa Bay Sierra Club Holiday Party.

The awards 'Recognize outstanding dedication to conservation efforts in the Tampa Bay community' and were distributed as follows:

  • The 2009 Black Bear Award, the Club's highest achievement, was presented to conservation photojournalist Carlton Ward Jr. for outstanding dedication to Florida conservation and wildlife.
  • Certificates of Appreciation were given to: Executive Committee member, John Hendershot; Group Energy Chair, Stephen Breslow; and local activist, Kent Bailey.

A special 'Thank You' goes to Marcia Biggs, our Program Chair, for organizing one of this year's most memorable events (and last year's, and the year before that .... and on and on!)
