Sullivan Renaissance in South Fallsburg
LIBERTY, August 2021– For its second 2021 Clean Sweep, Sullivan Renaissance teamed up with the Town of Fallsburg to spruce up areas in and around Brian Ingber Park and Main Street in South Fallsburg.
Staff, along with steering committee members, volunteers, and interns, planted trees, renovated gardens and litter plucked as a demonstration to encourage the community to care for areas they live, work, and play in. NYSEG and the Town of Fallsburg DPW also removed some compromised trees along the river. The teams visited the Rivoli Theatre and Murray’s Chicken to thank them for their continued beautification of Main Street, even during the COVID pandemic.
“We enjoyed spending time in the South Fallsburg community planting. In addition to gardening and clean up, we also offered a planting activity to children and families as a reminder to care for the environment,” said Christy TerBush, Sullivan Renaissance Program Coordinator, who led the Clean Sweep Project. “Gombo’s Bakery and Numell Hair Salon were sites for pop-up gardening sessions where passers-by watched containers and garden beds transform into cheerful spots to brighten the Main Street.”
Sullivan Renaissance will continue the effort by working with interested Main Street businesses through their Business Assistance grant program.
