What happened on July 27 1950? Alan Funt brought Candid Camera to Croton and filmed the police court. And on August 29, 1930? Forty-four men were arrested when police raided a stag party in Harmon. On March 9, 1893, The dynamo for electric light arrived in the village.
The 2006 calendar published by Croton Friends of History includes these bits of trivia and a host of others for almost every day of the year. Professionally designed, the calendar is illustrated with colorful vintage postcards with short explanations of their particular history. For example, the Stanley H. Kellerhouse Municipal Building is shown in its earlier incarnation as the Croton School and St. Mary’s Church, that pre-dated Holy Name of Mary is pictured.
The 2006 calendar is currently available at the Municipal Building, Main Office for $12. It will soon be available at other locations around the village.
