On Saturday, September 28th the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County (FCWC) held its annual benefit, at the beautiful home of past FCWC Co-President Sharon Pickett and her husband, Paul Mazzilli, on the grounds of the Sleepy Hollow Country Club. The weather couldn't have been better and a large crowd enjoyed the view, delicious food, music of the trio, “ Too Human,” and good conversation and networking by members and friends of FCWC.
This year’s honorees were the Honorable Amy Paulin, NYS Assemblywoman, and current chair of the Assembly Energy Committee, - for her excellent environmental record and recent actions to promote energy efficiency. She reported to the attendees on current and planned legislation on the energy front in New York State. The other honorees of the evening were the two energy consortiums - Northern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (NWEAC) and the Southern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (SWEAC). These two coalitions pursue energy efficiency and sustainability solutions to municipal problems. NWEAC chair, Herb Oringel and SWEAC Executive Director Nina Orville told those assembled of some of the groups' impressive achievements in both areas and that several municipalities not currently in the consortiums are asking to join. This night was made possible through the generous support of Green Home Consulting, LLC and Sprague Operating Resources LLC.
