Summer Communities Join Renaissance Beautification Effort

June 30, 2005

[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance has awarded 12 grants to seasonal communities that are joining in the second year of a program to improve the appearance of their property and to beautify the area.  Under the Sullivan Renaissance 2005 Seasonal Grant Program, these summer camps and bungalow colonies are being awarded $200 grants for clean-up and aesthetic improvement projects. 


Projects include new entry gates and signs, plantings and gardens at entrances, flower baskets, repair and painting of roadside fences, restoring a steeple ticket gate, landscaping of the campus, and cleaning up litter and trash.


“Some of these projects are larger and more ambitious than last year.  We’re very happy to see five communities return for a second time, along with eight new ones,” said Colleen Emery, who coordinates the Seasonal Grant Program, “It’s clear that many summer residents have just as strong an interest in improving the way our county looks as our year-round residents. 


Seven of the projects involve summer camps, one is by a summer theatre, and four are bungalow colonies or summer communities.


Applications were submitted by June 1.  Communities will be recognized at the Sullivan Renaissance Awards Celebration on Monday, August 15.  There are 42 regular Sullivan Renaissance projects in communities throughout the county this year.


The mission of Sullivan Renaissance is to enhance the appearance of Sullivan County, while building a sense of pride and spirit in the community.  Sullivan Renaissance is a project of the Beaverkill Foundation with support from the Gerry Foundation.
