[GRAHAMSVILLE] – Over the past twelve months, residents in the Town of Neversink have been photographing many of the barn quilts that have been placed on the historic barns of the town by hundreds of local volunteers.
Neversink Renaissance has now released its 2009 Barn Quilts Calendar depicting the barns during the various seasons of the year. Designed by Carolyn Bivins, the calendar celebrates the residents whose pride in their community and spirit of volunteerism can be seen across the township. It is dedicated to Terry Forshay, a master gardener, community organizer and barn quilt painter who passed away earlier this year.
To view the pictures and see the locations of all of the Town of Neversink Barn Quilts go to www.townofneversink.org. Calendars are available for purchase at the Neversink Town Hall and the Daniel Pierce Library.
“The 2009 calendar is awesome, so we are already planning for a 2010 version,” said Dave and Phyllis Moore, who organized the project, “Once again we ask that community members keep their cameras handy for those beautiful seasonal shots.”
Photos for the 2010 calendar – including winter snow scenes and spring blossom shots – will be accepted any time from now through August 15, 2009. Submissions may be made in print form or digitally (300 DPI or better). For submission details or more information, call Dave and Phyllis Moore at 845-985-2746.
Neversink Renaissance is one of the projects supported by Sullivan Renaissance, a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with additional funding secured through NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther. Information about Sullivan Renaissance programs is available on-line at www.sullivanrenaissance.org.
