THE 2019 SERENATA TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE IS 12/12 AT HOLY NAME OF MARY

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

Just got word that the Spanish Ministry at Holy Name of Mary will hold their annual Our Lady of Guadalupe Serenade from 3:00 AM to approximately 7 AM on December 12th; bilingual mass at 5 AM.  Yes, that is indeed "a.m" and the church is packed! (Click on a few of the photos from the 2014 event).


That being said, it has been your editor's privilege to attend this observance for many years. 

For those who don't know, the Serenada/Serenata is a special celebration honoring the Virgin Mary on the eve of the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe--and extremely well attended at Holy Name. This feast day is recognized in much of Latin America, especially Mexico. 

Residents also bring in their icons and statues to be blessed and there are abundant offerings of flowers and sometimes food, the church is decorated in vibrant greens, and there is spirited and uplifting music.

WE'RE A WEEK AWAY FROM THE CROTON POINT AVENUE PROJECT BIDS COMING IN....AND SO BY SPECIAL REQUEST

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton -- our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship -- in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

As you know, the Croton Point Avenue project was recently re-bid....the original responses of some time back came in much higher than the board anticipated.....

WE'RE NOW A WEEK AWAY FROM THESE BID responses coming in and so.... ONCE AGAIN, FOR GOOD MEASURE...

"Let’s return reasonable, off-peak, on street parking (10 a.m.-3 p.m.?) to the north side of CPA, for the benefit of its businesses and their customers.

As for this project, it’s high time to kill it once and for all, and stop throwing good money after bad."

REMEMBERING THE LATE JOHNNY HALLYDAY

WHO DIED THIS DATE in 2017....a fab post courtesy of our friends at European Film Star Postcards:

Johnny Hallyday (1943-2017) - The father of French Rock and Roll is dead. Flamboyant singer and actor Johnny Hallyday (1943-2017) passed away yesterday, 6 December. He was a European teen idol in the 1960s with record-breaking crowds and mass hysteria, but he never became popular in the English-speaking market. In later years he concentrated on being an actor and appeared in more than 35 films. Johnny Hallyday was 74.  READ AND SEE MORE HERE
