Legislators Honor Rockfall Foundation

On May 17, local CT legislators, State Senators Len Suzio and Paul Doyle and Representative Joseph Serra, presented an official citation to The Rockfall Foundation in honor of the 40th anniversary of the foundation’s Green Grants program. Middletown Mayor Dan Drew and Councilwoman Deborah Kleckowski also attended, with Rockfall Executive Director Claire Rusowicz, Board President Jane Harris, and Board members Frank Kuan and Lee Osborne.

The citation was given “In recognition of forty years of commitment to environmental education, conservation and planning initiatives through awarding grants to schools and other non-profit organizations. Your hard work and dedication to serving your community and the environment are greatly appreciated.”

Rockfall will celebrate the grants’ 40th anniversary this fall on November 8 at its annual meeting and awards evening – please save the date!   

The Rockfall Foundation supports environmental education, conservation programs and planning initiatives in Middlesex County. Established in 1935, it is one of Connecticut’s oldest environmental organizations whose mission is to be a catalyst – bringing people together and supporting organizations to conserve and enhance the county’s natural environment. Rockfall awards grants each year to organizations, schools and municipalities, and continues to hold and manage open space property in the county.
