CONGRATULATIONS TO HOLY NAME OF MARY'S 1ST COMMUNION CLASS

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

Congratulations to the 3rd Grade First Communion class at Holy Name of Mary. Their recent tag sale raised $503 toward a new ipad for kids who are at Blythedale Children’s Hospital and for kids from Happy Families International who are awaiting operations. Leftover books that didn’t sell went to Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for children who come to visit their mothers.

EXAMINER NEWS: GAS PIPELINE, HIGH VOLTAGE STATION RAISE CONCERNS, ALGONQUIN, SPECTRA, WEST POINT PARTNERS

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

EXAMINER NEWS: GAS PIPELINE, HIGH VOLTAGE STATION RAISE CONCERNS, ALGONQUIN, SPECTRA - 4/15/14 Cortlandt Officials Declare: “Enough Already!” - Two separate projects proposed on a 100-acre former quarry site in Verplanck involving a gas transmission line and a high voltage converter station have officials and residents in Cortlandt fired up. More than 100 onlookers packed into Cortlandt Town Hall last week to learn more details about plans pending before federal and state agencies that opponents contend would pose safety, environmental and quality of life threats to a residential community already strapped with the Indian Point nuclear power plants, RESCO garbage burning facility and other industrial businesses.
