Courtesy of River Reporter: The Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association (SCVA) announced that award winners for 2022 have been selected and will be honored at its annual meeting and holiday party at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 7 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
“These awards recognize outstanding individuals and businesses in the Sullivan Catskills,” said SCVA president/CEO Roberta Byron-Lockwood. “We are so honored that they are a part of our thriving community.”
The STAR Award for Business Achievement recognizes a business that exhibits how their work has affected the image of the Sullivan Catskills to the traveling public and enhanced visitors’ experience.
The Eldred Preserve project was brought to life by local resident and entrepreneur Dan Silna and his wife, Joan. The concept weaves the very best of three Sullivan County legacy brands—the Eldred Preserve, the Bradstan Country Hotel, and the Homestead Restaurant—together to create a completely new hospitality experience.
“The intent from the very beginning of the reimagined Eldred Preserve/Bradstan Boutique Hotel/Homestead project was to add to the fabric of the Sullivan Catskills in a positive way,” said the Silnas. “We worked hard to create a space that everyone would appreciate and enjoy. This recognition is so very much appreciated, and we are honored. We continually strive to live up to the expectations of our community.”
