The Board of the Croton Caring Committee would like to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude to Anne Kennedy, whose vision, dedication, energy and compassion informed her many years of service to the Croton Community.  Anne founded the Croton Caring Committee in 1981, and since its inception the scope of its services have grown in furtherance of its mission to enlist the resources of the community to help the frail, elderly, homebound, handicapped, or families in need of temporary assistance, enabling them to maintain their independence and dignity.  Last week Anne announced her intention to retire from her position as Executive Director on April 18th.  The entire board wish Anne the very best as she begins her much deserved retirement.

The best way to honor Anne’s legacy is for the Croton Caring Committee to continue.  The Board has launched a search for a new Executive Director and hopes to have one in place in the coming weeks.  For those interested in the position, we are seeking a new Executive Director to administer the Croton Caring Committee’s current programs and work with the Board of Directors to develop new programs in furtherance of our mission.  This is a part-time, largely work-from-home position with flexible hours.  The position will involve coordinating with local community groups, volunteers and Organization clients, and Croton residency is a plus, but not required.  To obtain a detailed job description and/or provide a resume, interested candidates should contact the Search Committee, Croton Caring Committee (1) by mail at PO Box 221, Croton on Hudson, NY  10520 or (2) by e-mail at crotoncaring@gmail.com.

We intend to hold the May 19th Luncheon at the Municipal Building as scheduled.  While some of the programs may be scaled down or put on hiatus during the search, we look forward to relaunching the Organization with a new Executive Director shortly.  We thank the community and our volunteers for their support and look forward to many more years of collaboration to help those in need of assistance in the Croton community.
