On Saturday from 2:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. Native American crafts expert Barry Keegan will demonstrate firemaking, flint knapping and other skills at the Croton Free Library. He will also display his collection of Native American and colonial artifacts, along with authentic replicas of bows, arrows, axes, buckskin, fire-making tools and pottery. This family event is co-sponsored by the Croton Arboretum and the Croton Free Library. Here's a short film by Ken Sargeant about one of Barry's previous visits to Croton.
Congratulations to Ethan and Aaron Lewis, who competed in Croton’s annual Halloween window painting contest this weekend and received an honorable mention for their "Croton Arboreat'em" window. Since the Arboretum officially closes at dusk we’ve never been there on Halloween. Now that we see what goes on there we’re grateful to Ethan and Aaron for the warning!
