How to Organize a Beautification Project in Your Community

December 14, 2010

[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance will hold a “Ready, Set, Organize” seminar to help communities learn how to organize beautification projects on Wednesday, January 5, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale.  

Are you are thinking about a small project at a single location or a community-wide effort involving multiple partners?  Do you have an idea for a beautification project in your community and want to connect with others?  Have you ever wondered how big jobs can get divided up into smaller pieces that are done by different people?

A panel of experienced community volunteers will explain how they rally the troops and organize local beautification efforts – and offer suggestions about how you can do the same.  Featured panelists include:

  • Mary Paige Lang-Clouse of the Ethelbert Crawford Library in Monticello
  • Matthew Migliaccio of the Phillipsport Community Center in Phillipsport
  • Elaine Fettig of the Rockland-Roscoe Chamber of Commerce in Roscoe
  • Eileen Patterson and Deborah Krol of Warwick in Bloom in the Village of Warwick, the national winner of America in Bloom in 2003 and this year’s winner of the international competition, Communities in Bloom. 

Sullivan Renaissance staff will be on hand to explain the 2011 program and how to apply for a grant.

Everyone is invited to attend.  Refreshments will be served.  Pre-registration is requested by January 3, 2011 by calling 845-295-2445 or e-mailing  Individuals may also register on-line at

Individuals interested in Sullivan Renaissance should also mark their calendars to reserve Saturday, February 26 for the annual Winter Conference at the CVI Building.  The keynote speaker will be tourism expert and lecturer Dr. Peter Tarlow.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
