Jeffersonville - December 18


The spirit of the season will ring clear throughout the valley and mountain communities of Jeffersonville and beyond the nights before Christmas.

“Ringing of the Bells”...Wednesday, December 23rd, 7 p.m. in the Park at the Bake Shop on Main St., Jeffersonville. There will be caroling, a luminary, and a COVID Memorial. The finale of the night will be the ringing of all of the church bells in Jeffersonville.

The Jeffersonville Area Chamber of Commerce and Sullivan 180 are sponsors of what will be a heartwarming event.

Next, to continue the Christmas spirit, “Bells Will be Ringing”... Thursday, December 24th, 6 p.m. at your home! Would you like to carry over the spirit of bell ringing from the night before? Or maybe unite with the community from the safety of your home? Ring your bell from your porch, your deck, your open window.

The wish of Sponsor Jeffersonville JEMS is that our entire community makes music like we have never made before. Please join us.

The Sullivan Renaissance will host the G2R Virtual Winter Symposium - Get Ready to Renaissance! on Wednesday, January 13th, at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom.

Interns speak about their experience with Sullivan Renaissance and how it has shaped their views on community service, in a short video directed and produced by Arly Marin-Leon. Arly is a former Sullivan Renaissance Intern, Steering Committee Member, and scholarship recipient.
