Sullivan Renaissance will hold its “Annual Conference, Local Market & Expo” on Saturday, March 9 at the CVI Center in Ferndale.
The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Peter Tarlow, an international consultant on the positive effects of community beautification, who has been assisting Sullivan Renaissance for the past two years. Dr. Tarlow will also present a workshop focused on youth leadership.
The event features exhibits and workshops on the Renaissance Collection of plants, garden maintenance, social media, recruiting volunteers, enhancing Main Streets and related topics. In a continued effort to support the shop-local movement, a marketplace featuring fresh food and items produced in the area will be part of the day.
Information about the 2013 Sullivan Renaissance grant program will be presented, along with an opportunity to discuss individual projects with staff. Applications will be available.
Recipients of the annual Sullivan First Achievement Awards will also be recognized at the conference.
Vendor applications and workshop registration forms will be available online in January. For information, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845/295-2445.
