Dwight Lydell Chapter
Conservation Awards Banquet
We were very proud to call Cannon Township’s Steve Grimm, Bonnie Blackledge, and Julie Lovelace our Conservation Awardees this year, because their work on watershed education has evolved into fracking protections. This township is the FIRST in the state to put some teeth into specific ordinances. A few others have declared moratoriums, but Cannon’s board is going for a stronger legal defense, in hopes of maintaining local control over our environment.
Jim Schneider was awarded Chapter Ike of the Year with help from Alona Schneider
Bob Stegmier was recognized for his many years of service to the IKEs. Award was presented by chapter VP Georgia Donovan.
