Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful and its supporters gathered at Giovanni's on Thursday for the annual Earth Day luncheon.
The event featured guest speaker Leilani Münter, a driver in NASCAR's ARCA development league, and KNIB presented its Environmental Excellence Awards to local groups and individuals who work to improve the region. The Rockford Chamber of Commerce, City of Rockford, and Winnebago County were honored.
"We recognize these organizations as supporting us at the outset, and throughout our non-profit's lifetime," KNIB Executive Director Lori Gummow said. "Each of these organizations show exemplary dedication to improving and protecting the environment."
This was the sixth year of the luncheon. More information on KNIB can be found at www.knib.org.
