Volunteers have been busy working on 46 community projects since initial grants were awarded in March.  Each group will meet with a team of judges on Friday, August 8 to explain its project.  The judges will then visit the sites over the next two days.  Twelve projects judged the most successful in completing their efforts will receive second round grants between $1000 and $10,000.  All participants that finish will receive completion grants.

 

NYS Senator John J. Bonacic was instrumental in obtaining funding for five large community development projects in Category C.  One of these will also receive the $50,000 “Golden Feather Grant” secured by Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.  Sponsorships have also been provided by WSUL/WVOS for Category A projects and by Thunder 102 for Category B projects.

 

Special awards will be given for a “Showing of Flowers,” “Project Maintenance,” “Historic Preservation” and “Environmental Stewardship.”  These awards are presented by the following sponsors: Jacobowitz & Gubitz; Town & Country Preferred Properties; The Chapin Estates; Times Herald-Record; Jeff Bank; CloughHarbour; Kristt Company; Barton & Loguidice, P.C.; The Towne Crier; The River Reporter; Sullivan County Democrat.
