COMMUNITY WORK DAY

Gardeners and Volunteers Needed on Saturday, June 2

May 29, 2012

FERNDALE – Gardeners and volunteers are needed for an hour or two in several Sullivan County communities this Saturday, June 2.  Residents are particularly wanted to help in three communities – Roscoe, Livingston Manor and Jeffersonville – but several communities have work days planned. 

“Did you know that many of the flowers and gardens you enjoy around Sullivan County are maintained exclusively by volunteers?” asked Sullivan Renaissance Director Glenn Pontier, “Won’t you please come out and help for an hour or two?” 

Sullivan Renaissance is helping to organize community work days from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the following locations:

  • Roscoe: Meet at the clock garden on Stewart Avenue
  • Livingston Manor:   Meet at the barn behind the old pharmacy (Siegel’s Department Store) on Main Street
  • Jeffersonville:   Meet at the clock garden on Main Street (in front of Peck’s)

Volunteers with (and without) experience are needed; and asked to bring gloves and tools if they have them.  All volunteers who participate will be entered into a drawing for a family four-pack of tickets to the New York Philharmonic Orchestra concert and fireworks display on Saturday, July 7 at Bethel Woods.

Sullivan Renaissance held similar work days on May 19th in Woodridge, Wurtsboro and Swan Lake.  A community work day will be held in Woodbourne on Saturday, June 16. 

For information about other locations, check with the local Renaissance group or chamber of commerce; or call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit www.sullivanrenaissance.org.

Most of the communities are part of Sullivan Renaissance’s Maintenance Grant Program.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, FisherMears Associates, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation and WSUL/WVOS.
