Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony at Bethel Woods

August 13, 2014

[BETHEL] – Fallsburg Cheerleaders pumped up an already excited crowd during the Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony on August 11 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.  Almost $150,000 in grants and scholarships were awarded to winning communities throughout Sullivan County as over 500 people cheered and applauded enthusiastically. 

The six cheerleaders from Fallsburg High School were tireless as they motivated the crowd with cheers and jumps continuously throughout the two-hour ceremony.

Grants ranging from $1000 to $25,000 were awarded to projects in various categories, while some projects were also recognized with special awards for showing of flowers, history, youth engagement and environmental stewardship.  All of the communities that completed projects received a grant based on the size of their category, as well as certificates of recognition from Sullivan Renaissance and area legislators.

The complete list of winning projects and scholarships can be found at

The ceremony began with the playing of “Do Something Good”by Barry and Ken Somerville.  Sandra Gerry recognized the Sullivan Renaissance staff and thanked participants for the work they are doing.  Sullivan County Legislative Chair Scott Samuelson thanked everyone for their contributions.

Project recipients received certificates of excellence from Sullivan Renaissance, as well as individual certificates from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, U.S. Representative Chris Gibson, NYS Senator John Bonacic, NYS Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther, NYS Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney and the Sullivan County Legislature. 

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  For information about Sullivan Renaissance, contact 845-295-2445.
