For those who don't know, Lee Hayes of "The Weavers" fame, moved to Croton in 1967 where he spent his remaining years. He died in 1981. The documentary film The Weavers: Wasn't That a Time!, for which Hays had written the script, was released in 1982.
And so by special request, courtesy of the outstanding archives at The Croton Historical Society, a few select items from the file. Click on the photos below. For those who have asked, Hayes lived on Memory Lane here in Croton. You can read more about Hays at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Hays
Please note that this is not a forum for political commentary, left or right, and those comments will be deleted immediately; rather this posting serves as a tribute to the music and a record of his time in our village.
