This treasure trove of items made in or about the Catskills is the HSM raffle item this year.

“A Tisket, a Tasket: The Catskills in a Basket” was assembled by fundraising volunteers Jackie Purdy, Anne Sanford and Marilyn Pitetti.

The large wicker laundry basket contains more than $400 worth of locally made or sourced food products, books, home goods and more. These items will provide endless enjoyment as well as gift items for your favorite people.

You can buy tickets at our upcoming events (check our calendar), and at select community events. For information or to make other arrangements to get tickets, contact us at

The drawing will be held at the Annual Meeting October 22.
