Slideshow: River Day 2009

June 14, 2009

To the editor:

Croton resident Geoff Haynes has just published a superb short slideshow of photos and music from the June 7, 2009 River Day. He has plenty of photos of the fleet comprising the Halve Maen, Clearwater, Mystic Whaler, Onrust and other boats as it sailed up the Hudson.

As Geoff says: “Take a look, when you have a moment, at the audio slideshow I created (below) of the River Day festivities last Sunday. So, turn on your speakers, and go full-screen on the slideshow, for the full effect!”

Thank you, Geoff!

Marc Cheshire, chair of Croton’s Quadricentennial Committee that organized our village’s events for River Day on June 7, also has done a superb job of bringing back into circulation some of the very handsome artwork prepared for the Tricentennial. You can view some of this newly digitized 100 year old artwork at the Taconic Postcard C Club.
