GBC holds successful fundraiser with "Jazz on the Banks of Lake Barbara"
Posted: August 28, 2010
The Greenville Beautification Committee held a successful fundraiser in the form of a jazz concert at the property of Barbara Walter on Route 32 in Greenville. Families and residents of the local area (and some from as far away as New York City) joined together for a festive evening of music, food, wine & beer and desserts.
The Jazz on the Banks fundraiser kicks off the Greenville Main Street and Parks Initiative, a beautification effort in Greenville to bring new light poles, benches, planters and banners to the Route 32/81 intersection, Veteran's Park and Vanderbilt Park. Examples of the pole and bench were on hand for fundraiser attendees to look at. Read about the Mainstreet Initiative and see photos
The GBC wishes to thank the underwriters for this event (Central Hudson, Big Top Tent Rentals, National Bank of Coxsackie) and local area sponsors who donated to the event (Bank of Greene County, The Freehold Pub, Gennaro's Bakery, Stewart's Shops, Rite Aid, GNH Lumber and Price Chopper). Without your support this event could not have been possible.

As you may have heard, new decorative street lighting is coming to Greenville! Last winter the Greenville Beautification Committee, the Town of Greenville, and the Greene County IDA agreed to fund lamp poles for installation in front of our town hall. Town Supervisor Paul Macko and County Legislator Kevin Lewis also pledged to purchase poles on behalf of their families.
Each decorative pole includes arms for banners and flower baskets.
These new light poles are part of a broad initiative to enhance the streets and public spaces of our hamlet. The Committee is also creating a program to add benches, planters and banner signs, along with other lighting enhancements to the intersection of Routes 32 and 81. All items are chosen with visual impact and durability in mind.
The Greenville Beautification Committee asks for your support of this important initiative for Greenville's prosperity. A newsletter will be mailed shortly in the coming weeks with details and a call for donations.

The Greenville Beautification Committee wishes to announce the launch of GBCworks.com, a news and information site about the Committee's work in Greenville. Over the next coming months, the site will showcase upcoming projects, including opportunities for volunteers wishing to help in beautification work.
GBCworks.com will also incorporate features to act as a "suggestion box" for opinions and ideas on possible beautification projects. It is the Committee's hope that this will help make its operation more engaged and transparent, encouraging greater participation by members of the community.
GBCworks.com was designed and will be administered by Luminant Design, a local Greenville design business.
