metal detectors searched the area without success.

We're Looking Across The Bridge and we are
With the opening of the Dix Bridge, the Town of Greenwich has laid out a welcome
mat and we are looking across the river for fertile space to grow Hudson Crossing
The Park has been given a $5,000 grant from the Community/Land Preservation and Planning Fund of the Community Foundation for the
Greater Capital Region. Thanks to additional support from the Towns of Northumberland, Greenwich, and Saratoga, as well as an
anonymous donor, a total of $22,000 has now been raised to support an intensive planning process underway to direct the growth of the
Park into Washington County. Cindy Wian, longtime volunteer with Hudson Crossing Park, has been hired to work closely with the Park’s
Board of Directors, and community leaders in the Town of Greenwich and Washington County, to coordinate planning and assist in
developing a “2020 Vision” for the Park’s operation and growth.
A portion of the Community Foundation grant will also help expand
the Schuylerville Green Ribbon School Project, one of Hudson
Crossing’s signature outreach programs.
This project prioritizes getting students outdoors, integrating
environmental education into the curriculum, promoting an
environmentally-friendly campus, and incorporating health and
fitness into school programs. It is part of a national program
currently involving more than 850 schools. Locally, the Schulerville
Green Ribbon School Project is a collaborative effort between
Hudson Crossing Park, parent volunteers, students, teachers,
school staff, and the community. In October 2014, the Schuylerville
School District was named a “Green Ribbon School” by
GreenRibbonSchool.org, one of only 25 in the country to receive this
recognition. Hudson Crossing Park will continue to be a sponsoring partner for this outstanding school-based program.
Please Shop with local businesses' first.
We remind you of this because part of our mission is to support local economic revitalization.
When you decide where or how to shop please think of the potential impact of your decision.
Here is an example for your consideration: If supporters to put Hudson Crossing Park down as
the beneficiary of Amazon Smile and over the holidays purchase $25,000 worth of goods from
Amazon, then one-half of 1 percent of $25,000 amounts to $125. This $125 would be sent to
However, spent locally, the $25,000 in purchases would be made at local stores that your
neighbors own and where taxpaying members of your community work. That $25,000 would
have been a lot of income for those local stores, perhaps the difference between survival and
closure, or keeping staff members or firing them.
If you find that you need to shop online then consider joining one of these two services.
We wish all of you a Happy Holiday
and a big Thank You for such a terrific
2014. Tom Robinson's latest PSA says
