Sullivan Renaissance 2006 Award Ceremony at Bethel Woods

July 21, 2006


[BETHEL, NY] – “It’s Show Time” for Sullivan Renaissance as dozens of community beautification and improvement projects are honored at the 2006 Awards Ceremony on Monday, August 14 at  7:00 p.m. at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.  This is a wonderful opportunity to stroll the grounds and to celebrate all the volunteers who have worked so hard to beautify Sullivan County.  Refreshments will be available, so please RSVP by August 9.


Communities have been hard at work on 43 projects since initial grants were awarded in March.  A team of judges from outside Sullivan County will inspect the projects on Saturday, August 12 and determine the winners.  Twelve communities judged the most successful in completing their projects will receive second round grants between $1000 and $10,000. 


State Senator John Bonacic was instrumental in obtaining funding for the six large community development projects.  One of these will receive the $50,000 “Golden Feather Award,” which was secured by Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther.  All participants that finish receive completion grants.


New this year, are awards for a “Showing of Flowers” and “Project Maintenance.”  Returning awards include: “Historic Preservation,” “Environmental Impact” and the “Silver Feather” for planning excellence.


Certificates will also be given to 11 communities that participated in the mini-grant “Just Plant Flowers” effort and to 13 school groups as part of the “Spruce Up Your School and Community” program.  Three municipal cleanup projects will also be acknowledged.  And 18 young people will be recognized for participating in a gardening internship program where they learned horticulture while assisting Renaissance projects with the care of their flowers.  Scholarship awards for Sullivan Renaissance volunteers will be announced by Sullivan County Community College Foundation.


Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program funded by the Beaverkill Foundation and the Gerry Foundation.  For a list of the groups and projects or for more information call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445.
