[GRAHAMSVILLE] – For the second year in a row, Town of Neversink residents have spent the year photographing barn quilts placed on the town’s historic barns by local volunteers. Now Neversink Renaissance has released its Barn Quilts of Neversink 2010 Calendar depicting the barns during the various seasons of the year.
The calendar celebrates the residents whose pride in their community and spirit of volunteerism can be seen across the township. It is dedicated to Barbara Purcell who initiated the barn quilt concept in Neversink. Photos were taken by residents; the calendar was designed by Carolyn Bivins.
“We have had a very successful start to our sales at the SCCC craft fair, Neversink Ladies Auxiliary Craft Fair and general sales at the library and town hall,” said Dave Moore, one of the people who organized the project, “We are having more of a mail order push this year which I am sure will help as well.”
Calendars are available at the Neversink Town Hall and the Daniel Pierce Library at a cost of $7.00. They may be ordered by mail at: Neversink Renaissance, PO Box 307, Grahamsville, NY 12740. With shipping, the cost is $9.00 for one; $16.75 for two; or $26.00 for three. Checks should be made payable to Neversink Renaissance.
To view the calendar pictures or download the order form, go to www.townofneversink.org. For more information call the town hall at 845-985-7685.
Neversink Renaissance is one of the projects supported by Sullivan Renaissance, a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with additional funding secured through NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther. For information about Sullivan Renaissance, go to www.sullivanrenaissance.org.
The “Winter Wonderland” project of Neversink Renaissance will presented to the public at the annual tree lighting ceremony on Sunday, November 29 at 4:00 p.m., followed by caroling, special music and refreshments. Bicentennial Park will be transformed into a “Winter Wonderland” complete with 20 Christmas trees decorated by various community organizations and businesses. The holiday display will remain throughout December. The trees have been donated by Mancuso Tree Farm in Yeagerville.
