Gala to benefit Interpretive Center in Mt. Tremper
Arkville — Reservations are being accepted for the Catskill Gateway Gala, a celebration of the soon-to-be constructed Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center in Mount Tremper. The gala will be held on Saturday, April 12, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, and will benefit the Catskill Interpretive Center.
The gala will feature special guests, fine food and drink, and fellowship with ardent champions of the Catskills. There will be a very special performance by internationally acclaimed musicians Jay Unger and Molly Mason. The final designs for the Catskill Interpretive Center will be on display as well.
Guest of honor, retired Congressman Maurice D. Hinchey will be in attendance. The congressman has championed the cause of the Catskill Interpretive Center for over three decades. Hinchey secured the original funding for planning and developing this project and continued to support the project ever since. In 2013, the Catskill Interpretive Center was named in his honor.
Gateway to region
Located on a 62-acre site on Route 28 in Mount Tremper, the Catskill Interpretive Center will be the first information center dedicated to the Catskill Park. It will serve as a “gateway” for tourists and residents alike—providing comprehensive information on outdoor recreation, cultural activities, and tourist facilities in the Catskills, as well as natural history interpretation and Forest Preserve information.
The RSVP date has been extended to Tuesday, April 8. If you are interested in attending the gala or would like more information about the Catskill Interpretive Center, please contact the Catskill Center at 586-2611, via email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.catskillinterpretivecenter.org.
