Welcome to Everything Croton--a collection of all things Croton, our history, our homes, our issues, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
By special request: A LOOK BACK AT--AND FORWARD WITH--HOLY NAME OF MARY'S KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS, COUNCIL 4730...
One of the nicest things about Summerfest is the opportunity to connect--or re-connect--with Croton's outstanding service organizations--and so by special request, Everything Croton will re-acquaint you with the men and women who serve--from the Lions to the Rotary to the Knights of Columbus....(to see the recent Croton Lions posting, go here http://bit.ly/2srhYBE; to see the recent Croton Rotary posting, go here http://bit.ly/2uhMTly)
For those who don't know, The Knights of Columbus is a men's fraternal order based on the four core principals of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. In Croton, "Council 4730" has a long and rich history at Holy Name and with the community at large--supporting efforts to raise money for the homeless and parish needs, CYO activities, and much more. You'll always find a Knight working at the Holy Name's Summerfest Food Tent...Click on the links below to see only some of the great work the Knights have been involved in--and a little history too:
