CMC Annual Dinner

Fifth Annual CMC Dinner and Award Presentation

tickets for the dinner are no longer available

The CMC will be holding its 5th Annual Dinner event on Sunday evening, October 2th, at 5:00 pm.  We’ll again be celebrating at the Catamount Restaurant at the Emerson Resort on NYS Rte. 28 in Mt. Tremper, NY. This event coincides with the 12th annual Catskill Lark in the Park, which begins October 1st. We know it is a school night, but we think it is worth staying out late for.

Members and non-members of the CMC are welcome to join the evening’s fun that will include speakers, raffles and door prizes.  A portion of the $40 per person cost and raffle proceeds will go towards helping the CMC grow, supporting our trail building and maintenance work, and bringing more activities to the Catskills.

As we have done in the past, there will be a raffle with the grand prize being a new kayak donated by Kenco Outfitters in Kingston, as well as several other great sporting items.

Dinner tickets must be purchased and paid for by September 26th. They may be purchased online through PayPal (with a Credit Card or a PayPal account) by filling out the form below.

Speaking this year:

Heather Housekeeper, aka The Botanical Hiker, is a Certified Herbalist, long-distance hiker, and author. She has thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, North Carolina’s 1200 mile Mountains to Sea Trail (twice), and set the record as the first person to hike the 1000 mile Finger Lakes Trail System in one continuous trek. When not woods rambling or pulling back the petals on a botanical find, she educates and guides others into the natural world. In April, she published the second book in her Botanical Hiker Series: A Guide to the Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Finger LakesTrail.


The Emerson Resort is located at 5340 NYS Route 28, between the hamlets of Phoenicia and Boiceville, in Mt. Tremper, NY. It is roughly 30 minutes from both Kingston (in the east) and Margaretville (to the west).
