[MONTICELLO] – The Sullivan Renaissance 2010 Awards Ceremony will honor the volunteers who are improving communities throughout Sullivan County on Monday, August 9 at Monticello High School Auditorium. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with light refreshments; the program begins at 6:45 p.m.
Sullivan Renaissance will thank the thousands of volunteers who have been planting the seeds and nourishing the vision for ten years. “This has been ten years of blossoming, ten years of teamwork, ten years of making a difference,” said Sandra Gerry, who chairs the Sullivan Renaissance Steering Committee, “At this rate, can you imagine what we will all accomplish in the next few years?”
This year volunteers have been busy working on beautification projects in dozens of communities since April. Projects judged the most successful in completing their efforts will be announced at the Awards Ceremony and receive additional grants between $1000 and $50,000.
Participants in all Sullivan Renaissance programs will be acknowledged and three Community Development Grants will receive special recognition. Scholarships for Sullivan Renaissance volunteers will be announced by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan Counties, and the SCCC Foundation.
NYS Senator John J. Bonacic was instrumental in obtaining funding for large community development projects in Category C. One of these communities 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.
