IN MEMORIAM: John L. Habib (1964-2021)

“John was a citizen of the world but always called Croton home. After decades of accomplishment in the U.S. and overseas, he returned to Croton to help make his hometown the best Village it could be… He cherished his memories of the Village as a young boy but knew communities must grow and evolve to meet the challenges of today.” —Alain Begun

IN MEMORIAM: Lawrence Otis Graham (1961-2021)

“We have lost a treasure… He had his hand on the pulse of the African American experience. Through his books, he provided a great window into it. He did a great job navigating the political dynamics of our county through his commentary and perspective. He was a vital segment of the African American mosaic here.” —Rev. Franklyn Richardson, Pastor, Grace Baptist Church, Mount Vernon
