The following letter appears in this week's edition of the Gazette.

To my fellow citizens of Croton,

On behalf of myself, my family, and the Croton Village Board of Trustees, I’d like to extend our very best wishes to every resident of our village for a joyous holiday season and for health, happiness, and success in the New Year. 

Croton is a unique place with a unique and varied history and we are all very fortunate to reside in such a community. We are, by nature, a contentious lot. It is often said that if you ask any Crotonite for his or her opinion on any subject, you should be prepared to spend the next hour hearing all about it. 

 But we are also an extremely compassionate community. Literally hundreds of our citizens give willingly of their time to assist their neighbors through organizations such as the Croton Caring Committee, the Croton-Cortland Food Pantry, the Croton Coalition, and Holy Name’s God Squad. Others participate in similar organizations or individually volunteer at nearby hospitals and hospices, work with our youth in the scouts or coach in our numerous sports leagues or join in the variety of other activities taking place in the village.

  1. Perfect letter for the season. Merry Christmas to you and yours Greg.

  2. Happy Holidays to all!
