We would like to extend a big thank you to Dr. Ward Stone for coming to Ravena this past Friday. Dr. Stone shared many wonderful stories and, most importantly, talked about his new study of mercury and other hazardous substances in areas that may have been affected by nearly fifty years of toxic air emissions from the Lafarge Cement Plant in Ravena, NY.
Very little is known about the impact of all the toxins that have been emitted from the cement plant in Ravena for almost five decades. Dr. Stone’s study will be an important part of helping the public to understand precisely how these emissions can affect the health and welfare of our families and community
Dr. Stone’s efforts in studying environmental impacts is legendary. We are very excited and grateful for his participation.
We were also very pleased to welcome Assemblyman Tim Gordon and appreciate very much his support.
