We Have a Winner

green-awardWith all the commotion last week over the Dallas drilling vote, we were negligent in covering the 2013 Green Source DFW Awards for Environmental Leadership reception in Deep Ellum. This is a great annual event organized by the Memnosyne Institute that manages to assemble most of the area's environmental groups and personalities without a call to action for any crisis, only an evening of relaxed peer engagement. It's a small but significant sign that there is some infrastructure to the movement.

This year, Molly Rooke, a Downwinder board member and 25-year volunteer for the Sierra Club, won Volunteer of the Year. Molly has been active on clean air issues since 1988. She's a veteran of the TXI hazardous waste-burning fight of the 1990's and early oughts. Recognition for her contribution was long overdue.

Friends of Tandy Hills (think "Prairiefest" ) won Grassroots Non-Profit Group, as a going away present for founder Don Young, who's moving to Marfa, Deborah Branch of Keep Forth Worth Beautiful won the Non-profit Professional of the year, Frito Lay won the Corporate award and Recycle Revolution won in the Entrepreneur category. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to the folks at Memnosyne for hosting.
