MONGAUP VALLEY – On September 11, and the days leading up to it, our country marks the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks that rocked our country. As we reflect on that moment in our history, we will honor the victims, first responders, and citizens who stood up to serve our nation through military service with tributes, memorial services, and volunteer service. Together, they represent a shared belief that by neighbor helping neighbor, we can make our country stronger and better for decades to come. The Corporation for National and Community Service leads our annual event, working with 911Day.org and hundreds of business, nonprofit groups, faith-based organizations, and schools nationwide.
On Friday, September 7 from 4:30 - 7:00pm, Sullivan Renaissance is supporting the Smallwood-Mongaup Valley Fire Department’s clean-up evening. This National Day of Service volunteer opportunity focuses on preparations for the fire department’s 9/11 Memorial Services on September 11, 8:00 am at their Memorial Park. The public is invited to participate. The clean-up event will involve litter plucking, weeding, edging, transplanting bushes and planting. Please bring gardening gloves. The park was a recipient of a Sullivan Renaissance Beautification grant in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
The memorial park is located in front of the firehouse at 181 Ballard Road in Mongaup Valley.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat, DVEight, and The Times Herald-Record.
