[SULLIVAN COUNTY] – Join with Sullivan Renaissance and volunteers from 11 communities on a self-guided tour through Sullivan County on Saturday, September 8. Each community will have volunteers available during the day to answer questions about their winning projects. Events and activities run from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
For a brochure containing the list of winners, tour day activities, and driving directions to each location go to www.sullivanrenaissance.org and click on the “Winning Projects Tour” Quicklink in the upper right hand corner. The brochure is also available at most gardens centers and nurseries throughout Sullivan County. Because of the distance between projects, it is not possible to visit every site on Saturday. Individuals should select the communities they most want to see and arrange to visit the others at a later date.
The winning projects were selected by an independent panel of judges from among 36 communities participating in the 2012 Sullivan Renaissance beautification competition. Volunteers worked on the projects from April through August and were judged for aesthetic improvement, collaboration, youth involvement, permanence and an ability to be maintained. Over $100,000 in grant and scholarship winners were announced at the Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony on August 13 at the Seelig Theater of SUNY Sullivan in Loch Sheldrake.
