CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. ‒ Village of Croton residents have organized two pot luck dinners to spare families without a way to cook after Hurricane Sandy the expense of eating out.
"If you're from Croton and you are sick of eating every meal out, please join us for a free hot dinner together," organizers wrote in a message sent out through the village's public notification system.
The first free dinner will take place Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Croton's Stanley H. Kellerhouse Municipal Building, 1 Van Wyck St. Organizers are serving spaghetti, "good tomato sauce," vegetables, bread and butter, organic milk, juice and soft drinks.

A second pot luck dinner is scheduled Thursday, Nov. 8, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church, 110 Grand St. Those wishing to attend who have a way to cook a meal should bring a dish.
