Recapping our 2015 Annual Meeting

We celebrated our annual meeting at the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, Connecticut, with inspiring presentations from sustainable community advocates, awards given to activists of all ages for their environmental work in the region, and the bittersweet goodbye to an outgoing board president and welcome of a new one. Thanks for sharing in this great day for CFE/Save the Sound! If you’d like to see more photos, please visit our Facebook album.
