People Who Make a Difference: 2021 Awards
On Oct 24, 2021, nearly 50 people joined Prince William Conservation Alliance (PWCA) at the Winery at La Grange to celebrate four people who are making a difference. This event put a spotlight on people who are generously working to strengthen Prince William communities and reminded us that our actions are important.
People mingled and shared concerns about the rural crescent, datacenters placed next to National Parks, the ongoing struggle to protect historic cemeteries, the value of native plants, and natural area parkland. We exchanged stories and ideas, and connected with one another over shared interests and to learn about something new.
PWCA recognizes the power of people, our voices, our stories and our actions. Much of what makes Prince William County special is the result of individuals who are leading the way to protect our quality of life. On Sunday, PWCA and guests recognized and thanked four Prince William County residents for their unique contributions that make the place we call home all the more special.
Kim Hosen, Executive Director, opened the program with a reminder that we each can make a difference, particularly when we come together to support a shared vision. "It was difficult to decide who to honor today, there are many people in this county doing amazing work," she said and the crowd nodded in agreement. The people we're recognizing stood out to us and highlight the far reaching ways people make our community more welcoming to each other and nature."
