2021 Dogwood Tree Grove Project
This grove, located at Croton Landing, is dedicated to the many residents and businesses of Croton on Hudson who were adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic that began in the year 2020. We are especially grateful for the courage demonstrated by health care providers and other essential workers during this challenging time.
The Croton Rotary conceived of this space to commemorate the resilience our community demonstrated in overcoming the severe challenges presented by this disease. Those efforts exemplify the Rotary philosophy of “Service Above Self.”
2021 Scholarship Winners
We have named the winners — from the Croton-Harmon High School Class of 2021 for our annual Stanley H. Kellerhouse Scholarships.
Jeannine Pecoraro has been involved in many activities at CHHS, including three seasons of track, Finance Club, Croton Academic Challenge team and National Honor Society. Jeannine’s community service involvement included volunteering at Wyomanock Farm, My Sisters’ Place (a domestic violence shelter) and, during the pandemic, Croton Mask Makers. Jeannine’s major focus of her community service was volunteering at White Plains Hospital and interacting with many patients at a tense time in their lives. Jeannine will be attending Tufts University in Medford, Mass., with a planned major of environmental engineering.
Cristian Duque had a variety of community service activities, including the Croton Blood Drive, numerous disaster relief fundraisers and a local food pantry. His major community service activity centered on the Hanami weekend distribution of food supplies. The service was vital to many families during this time, and Cristian traveled to different locations to assist.
Cristian is a member of CHHS stage crew, Pride Club, National Technical Honor Society, and CHHS National Honor Society. Cristian will be attending SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Utica, to major in interactive media and game design.

What is Rotary all about?
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary’s people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
The things we do…
Throughout the year we participate in many events in and around our community of Croton-on-Hudson, NY. Ringing the Salvation Army bell, donating turkeys during Thanksgiving season, preparing lunch for our seniors through the Croton Caring Committee are just a few of the many ways we give back.
