INGRID BERGMAN, FROM OUR FRIENDS @ EUROPEAN FILM STAR POSTCARDS

Our friends at European Film Star Postcards have put up a wonderful post on actress Ingrid Bergman--who was unforgettable in THE BELLS OF ST. MARY, CASABLANCA, and more.

And here you go:

We're in Italy at the 29th edition of Il Cinema Ritrovato in Bologna. One of the sections is about ‘Sweden's illustrious gift to Hollywood’, Ingrid Bergman (1915-1982). In the 1940s, the fresh and naturally beautiful actress won three times the Oscar, twice the Emmy, and once the Tony Award for Best Actress. Little known is that before she went to Hollywood she already had a European film career. 

Read more--and video too--about Bergman from one of our favorite blogs here:

p.s. Here's Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS.

MASONRY & ROOF WORK BEGINS WEEK OF 7/6 @ CROTON MUNICIPAL BLDG., PARKING @ A PREMIUM 4-6 MONTHS

Parking at the building will be severely curtailed during the project--expected to last 4-6 months. As a result, much parking will have to be on the street. Please be courteous and respectful of those who live in the area; do not park over--or tightly against--residential driveways. Please also be aware that parking, already difficult in the Upper Village business district, will also be at a premium from "spill-over".  Overnight parking in the municipal building lot will be prohibited. 

It is unknown at this time know how much of the parking lot spaces have been lost to the cell tower on the roof, which had to be relocated elsewhere; the carrier wanted a portion of the parking lot used for this purpose as a recent Gazette article indicated. Nothing is mentioned about the cell tower in the village's release; READ THE RELEASE HERE: http://www.crotononhudson-ny.gov/Public_Documents/CrotonHudsonNY_EmerNews/051A04FF-000F8513

SUPPORT FOR GABRIELA BARKAN'S FAMILY...CAN YOU HELP, ALSO WAKE/FUNERAL INFO

We just got word that...Last week, we lost an extraordinary woman, Gabriela Barkan. She was compassionate, loving and full of life, which makes her loss that much harder. 

Gabriela's large family of friends and neighbors, community and school district members, let’s get together and honor her name by lending a helping hand to Jason and their children Alexandra, Sebastian and Rhea to cover their unexpected costs, loss of one income and caregiver for the children.  Let's pave a softer way out of this ordeal of losing Gabriela so prematurely leaving them in pain, confused and overwhelmed...

For those who would like and are able to offer any help financially, you can contribute any amount here, besides the love and kindness that we need to spread in her name at http://www.youcaring.com/gabriela-barkan-382404#.VZLUqhne6pk.facebook

Editor's Note: Gabriela was an ardent supporter of Croton DI and all three of her children, Alexandra, Sebastian and Rhea have been part of the program. Please consider helping the family, if you are able. 

Many thanks to Roseann Schuyler for passing along this information.
