SULLIVAN RENAISSANCE 2007 AWARDS CEREMONY

July 6, 2007

 

[BETHEL, NY] – The Sullivan Renaissance 2007 Awards Ceremony will honor dozens of community beautification and improvement projects on Monday, August 13 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m., the program begins at 7:30 p.m.  Refreshments will be available, so please RSVP by August 8.

 

Communities have been hard at work on 46 projects since initial grants were awarded in March.  A team of judges from outside Sullivan County will inspect the projects on August 11 and 12.  Twelve communities judged the most successful in completing their projects will receive second round grants between $1000 and $10,000. 

 

NYS Senator John J. Bonacic was instrumental in obtaining funding for the seven large community development projects.  One of these will receive the “Golden Feather” award, a pre-approved state grant of $50,000 secured by Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.  All participants that finish receive completion grants.

 

Special awards will be given for “Showings of Flowers,” “Project Maintenance,” “Historic Preservation” and “Environmental Impact.”  Two communities will receive “Silver Feather” awards for planning excellence.

 

Certificates will also be given to 15 communities that participated in the mini-grant program and to 10 school groups as part of the “Spruce Up Your School and Community” program.  Fifteen municipal cleanup projects will also be acknowledged.  And 24 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 principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Youth participation is supported in part with a grant from the Louis R. Cappelli Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by Senator Bonacic and Assemblywoman Gunther.
