WESTON, Conn. – Do you know someone in Weston who has done great things for the environment? You can recommend him or her to the Weston Kiwanis Club, which is looking for nominations for its Millie Best Award.
The Millie Best Award goes to a Weston resident for “his or her environmental contributions or preservation efforts,” according to a statement.
Past winners include members of the Weston Conservation Commission and wildlife photographer Bruce Ando. Last year’s award went to former Weston Garden Club member Alice Barreca for her work to maintain the Aspectuck Land Trust’s Benjamin Wildflower Preserve on Old Stagecoach Road.
The award winner will be announced at Weston’s Green Up Day on April 27. During the annual event Westonites are encouraged to pick up litter across town.
The award is named for the late Millie Best, who founded Green Up Day more than 40 years ago. “The Millie Best Environmental Award is given to someone who best exemplifies her love and concern for the environment,” the Kiwanis Club announcement says.
To nominate a candidate for the Millie Best Award, contact Fred Schneider at 203-226-3748 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide your name, address and phone number as well as the name, address and phone number of the nominee, and a description of the environmental activity justifying recognition. Nominations should be received by mid-April.
