With so much happening in the village on Sunday...we did not want to forget...REMEMBERING CROTON HISTORIAN MARY LAMBRUSCHI--as we always do--who died on October 18th in 2011...smart, funny, no nonsense.
Your editor first became acquainted with this amazing woman during the long protracted battle to shut down the local waste transfer station. It was she who told us about the bound newspaper archives and microfiched copies (back then) at the Croton Library--and about the ongoing initiative to digitize these records for future use. As a result, residents were able to counteract much of the official misleading information being fed to the public with the cold hard facts found in the village's archives.
On a happier note, we all got to learn about the wonderful--and sometimes quirky--history of our little town and those who came before us.
Croton's Robert Scott wrote an excellent article about Mary in 2011--and it's worth re-reading again. Click on the link http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2011/10/robert-scott-remembering-mary.html
