On December 12th, the Spanish Ministry at Holy Name of Mary will celebrate the feast day of OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE. There will be a gathering at the church at 4 am, mass at 5 a.m., serenading by a traditional band and others, ending at 7 a.m. We’ll be there to take photos of this very special event.

Welcome to EverythingCroton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
CALLING ALL CROTON KNITTERS: Introducing a new series here at EverythingCroton: THE VINTAGE KNITTER! - We got the idea when Hallie Flanagan Wolfe of hallieflanaganwolfegardens.com, recently donated a small cache of dogeared but very interesting vintage knitting and crochet magazines from the 1940's through the 1960's. Some of these patterns are simply gorgeous!
Our fourth installment in the series is a KNITTED AFGHAN, 1942. Click on the photo.
