Sierra Club donates memorial bench in Haon’s honor
On Aug. 5, representatives of the Sierra Club met with members of the Board of Directors of the Inland Bays Foundation to dedicate a memorial bench in honor of the late Harry Haon, a past IBF member.
The memorial bench, made of 100 percent recycled material and inscribed with a brass appreciation plate, was placed in front of the Fenwick Island Town Hall. The bench was donated by the Sierra Club based in Wilmington.
Haon was known as a champion of environmental causes in Delaware. In addition to supporting the activities of the Sierra Club, Haon was a member of the Fenwick Island Town Council, and participated as a board member at both the Center for Inland Bays (CIB) and the Inland Bays Foundation(IBF). The IBF is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to returning Delaware’s waters to their original fishable and swimmable state.
IBF President Nancy Cabrera-Santos thanked Stephanie Herron of the Sierra Club for honoring Haon.
“We appreciate the work being accomplished by the Sierra Club and hope to work more closely together in 2017. With more people like Harry Haon, we can achieve environmental success in Delaware.”
