[BETHEL] – Sullivan Renaissance will award over a half million dollars in grants and resources to groups of volunteers involved in sprucing up their communities this season at the Annual Awards Ceremony on August 7th at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Volunteers, businesspeople, teachers, clergy, and elected officials will be acknowledged for their work and role as leaders who are moving Sullivan County forward.
The Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony is the culmination of months of volunteer efforts to plant flowers, spruce up buildings, main streets, and gateways, and to embrace many areas of beautification. From hanging baskets and banners to creating healthy communities and enhanced code enforcement, leaders have emerged to move their neighborhoods toward a place where everyone wants to be part of the action. “The dedicated work of those involved in this year’s program has enhanced our communities and public spaces, making the county an inviting place for all who live and visit here,” said Denise Frangipane, Sullivan Renaissance Executive Director.
The Awards Ceremony is open to everyone to celebrate community members as they are recognized for their dedication. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with light refreshments and festive entertainment. The program begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. The facility is ADA accessible.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, Fisher Mears Associates, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat and Thompson Sanitation.
