Help Renaissance beautify communities

FERNDALE, NY — Individuals interested in helping to beautify Sullivan County are invited to a Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Open House on Wednesday, February 5 at 7 p.m. in the CVI Building at 165 Sullivan Ave. in Ferndale.

The evening offers an opportunity to learn details about how volunteers can help with hands-on gardening and beautification, outreach, publicity and fundraising—both as part of the Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps and directly in local communities throughout Sullivan County.

Individuals will meet some of the 2014 Sullivan Renaissance grant recipients, already selected through an early admission process, and learn what they are doing to make a difference in their communities, and how to assist them.

Information about the 2014 Volunteer Corps program and various gardening trainings will also be presented. Pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be served. To register, visit or call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845/295-2445. Details can also be found on the Sullivan Renaissance Facebook and Twitter pages.
