Publication Tells about a Decade of Grassroots Transformation

November 21, 2011

[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance has released a new publication that celebrates ten years of beautification efforts in Sullivan County, New York, as told through the vision and voices of area residents who made it happen.  Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.


The magazine was produced by Sullivan Renaissance staff in collaboration with the Community Reporting Alliance and with the assistance of writers, photographers and designers from throughout the area.  The coeditors were Barbara Gref and Colleen Emery.


“For some, this publication will be a guide for replicating a version of the Sullivan Renaissance program elsewhere.  For others, it is a glimpse of where we have been and where we are going.  For everyone, it’s an invitation to share in our sense of pride as we take stock in what our friends and neighbors have achieved,” explained Emery, who heads special projects for Sullivan Renaissance.


It chronicles several of the individual challenges, struggles, accomplishments and heart-warming, inspiring stories that have been the fabric of Sullivan Renaissance.  It was created with the hope that others will be enticed to support the program’s mission – to beautify Sullivan County while building a sense of pride and community spirit.


The publication was launched on October 21st at the Annual Reception of the Sullivan County Partnership held at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.  Copies have been distributed to organizations, businesses, public libraries, museums and town halls throughout Sullivan County.  To inquire about obtaining a copy or for more information, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or
