Calling community members!

Call for planning committee members

There are wonderful things happening in downtown Gloversville!

2019 is going to be a pivotal year in the revitalization of Downtown Gloversville, one that will require all of us to chip in to make positive, lasting change in the community and set us up for a successful future. Do you have ideas on how to help us achieve our goals? Do you have goals for your business or our community? If so, our door is always open and we’re ready to hear your ideas.

This year, we are embarking on a single day of community action called 100in1 Day: Gloversville to be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019. Gloversville will be one of the first cities in the United States to host 100in1 Day and we are looking for your help to make it a success.

100in1 Day is an international movement currently in 31 cities across the globe. The event is meant to bring people together on one single day to perform 100 (or there abouts) acts of positivity for their community. This one day of service inspires the larger community to continue small acts the remaining 364 days of the year.

We are currently looking for individual volunteers, community groups, businesses and local residents to join us. Activities can range in size and scope. A neighborhood can get together to plant flowers around stop signs and street signs or in an elderly neighbor’s front garden. A business can work with employees to clean up a City park. A family can volunteer to hand out free “thank you” cards to passersby at Four Corners. The possibilities are endless.

Would you like to help us plan 100in1 Day: Gloversville?

We are looking for enthusiastic community members to help us plan and execute this event. You could be a business owner, someone who works downtown or anyone in the community who is looking to help us make a positive, lasting impact on our city.

What is required for committee members?

In-person meetings will be held once per month starting in February and will conclude in May. Some email communication may be necessary thereafter. We may ask that you help contact possible community groups, musicians, etc. to help fill-in programming for the day. We don’t expect participation to require more than two or three hours per month in total.

Are you required to work at the event?

Absolutely not – but we won’t say no if you want to! We will have a general call for volunteers as the date comes closer.

Please contact Jennifer Jennings, Gloversville Downtown Development Specialist if you would like to help plan the event or have an activity you would like listed. She may be reached at jenniferj@fccrg.org or at 518.725.7700 ext. 1004.
