Environmental Award



At the monthly Green Drinks gathering earlier this month, hosted by Bari Freeman and her team at Bike Newport, Toni Wallace Ciany presented the second annual Environmental Stewardship Award given by the Newport Energy and Environment Commission in partnership with the Hibernians to Rachel Lessne (right). Lessne was awarded for her environmental activism, in particular her enthusiastic participation in recycling during the Newport St. Patrick's Day parade. She is the recipient of other awards, all recognizing her environmental activism. She also lectures and works with teachers to involve students in environmental awareness.
