Outdoor Lighting Forum hands out awards
Submitted to Harbor Light Newspaper

The 10th annual Outdoor Lighting Forum luncheon honored Emmet County individuals, businesses and groups committed to sound outdoor lighting practices that result in less light pollution and more quality dark skies over Northwest Michigan.

The event took place at the City Park Grill in Petoskey on Earth Day, April 22, 2013. Hosting the event was Mary Stewart Adams, Director of Programming for the International Dark Sky Park at the Headlands. Keynote speaker was Frank Ettawageshik, Executive Director of the United Tribes of Michigan. He spoke about the importance of considering every day to be Earth Day, and reminding attendees about the importance of not sacrificing the important elements of Earth for human conveniences.

Ettawageshik praised the efforts of the honorees, Emmet County and others in the region for working diligently to protect our natural resources in Northern Michigan. "We've done so many positive things," Ettawageshik said. "I feel good about that. I feel good about being part of a community that is doing these things."

Honored with the Gary R. Williams Excellence in Outdoor Lighting Awards were: Harbor Springs Car Care, Harbor Springs (Connie Warner accepting); Johnstone Supply, Petoskey (Eric Stehouwer accepting); Jones Landing Park (Dennis Keiser accepting); Village of Mackinaw City (Jeff Hingston accepting); and Joann Condino of Three Pines Studio in Cross Village.
