A LOOK BACK AT--AND FORWARD WITH--THE CROTON LIONS CLUB

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

By special request: A LOOK BACK AT--AND FORWARD WITH--THE CROTON LIONS CLUB...

One of the nicest things about Summerfest is the opportunity to connect with Croton's outstanding service organizations--and so over the next few weeks, and by special request, Everything Croton will re-acquaint you with the men and women who serve--from the Lions to the Rotary to the Knights of Columbus....

First up, the Croton Lions, established in 1939. (Click on the photo to see current members marching in the 2017 Summerfest Parade).

Yes, The Croton Lions have a long history in the village. You can see select scans from their 45th anniversary commemorative booklet (and that was back in 1984!) by clicking on the link http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2015/11/1939-1984-croton-lions-celebrate-45th.html

And of course, there's the annual Croton Lions Christmas Tree sale--residents thought the sale wouldn't happen in 2016 due to construction at the Shoprite site but village officials found a way and the tradition continued http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2016/11/the-2016-croton-lions-christmas-tree.html

And here's more Croton Lions, courtesy of the historical society and... http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2012/12/2012-look-back-at-croton-lions.html
