Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
The Clearwater Festival, staged for decades, will not be
held this year. The executive director of the Beacon-based environmental
organization founded by the late Pete Seeger said this evening that the
economic condition of the organization is “challenged” and the group can’t
“risk money on a festival.” http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/story/news/2016/01/20/economically-challenged-clearwater-wont-held-festival-year/79076808/

P.S. To those commenters who were somehow blaming Mayor Schmidt for this unfortunate turn of events, your editor has a suggestion: read more, react less, then repeat. Here's hoping that Clearwater can work through their difficulties. They are an important part of Croton's history.
