And now a word from Dennis Kooney, Director, Croton Yacht Club Inc.

I would like to thank those members of the community who supported the recent Croton Yacht Club College Scholarship fundraiser which raised over $2,700. Special thanks to those Yacht Club members who worked tirelessly in coordinating and executing another successful event. 

The mission of the scholarship grant is to promote studies in the marine, maritime, environmental science and/or environmental engineering fields; to cultivate future local environmental leaders and advocates; to develop future stewards of local marine resources and to enhance, promote and protect local river related recreational resources. 

A one-time grant(s) totaling two thousand dollar ($2,000.00) will be awarded to a 2017 Croton-Harmon High School graduate who is pursuing undergraduate college accredited courses in the aforementioned fields of study. Including this year, the Yacht Club will have awarded $11,000 in grants over the past seven years. 

Support of this program is an investment in the future health of the river we all love. Thank you again for your support and we hope to see you all at our annual “River Day” event on September 9th.
