PHOTOS FROM FATHER MIKE's WINE & CHEESE FAREWELL RECEPTION AT HOLY NAME

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

On June 25th, a wine and cheese farewell reception was held for Father Michael “Mike” Keane at Holy Name of Mary. To say that it was well attended would be an understatement—with fellowship, good food, and more than the occasional tear. It’s safe to say Father Mike will be dearly missed. Click the link to see a slideshow of some photos from last night’s event:

A “family friendly farewell” will be held today in Holy Name of Mary’s Peace Garden, 11:30 to 2 p.m.

OSSINING'S PETER FALK HAS DIED

Peter Falk, a.k.a. Columbo, has passed away. Given his Ossining roots, there's an article in the Journal News; you can read more about it here but the link won't last forever: http://tiny.cc/0edt4 

While Columbo may be his most remembered role, why not rent Blake Edwards' THE GREAT RACE, starring Natlie Wood, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon to see Falk at his comedic best. 

Falk played "Max", the bumbling sidekick to the evil Professor Fate. Set in the early days of the automobile, Falk was the perfect counterpoint, exhibiting a flair for comedy that was nothing short of sublime. Rest in peace.
