CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. - Croton's Blue Pig Ice Cream shop reopened under normal business hours Friday after owner Lisa Moir was hospitalized for an arm injury.

Peter Lavery, a friend of Moir's and a Croton resident, said Moir suffered a broken arm and will make a full recovery.

Moir was taken to Westchester Medical Center for treatment after the accident. The shop reopened after a Department of Health inspection and will be open for normal business hours.  

Croton Police said they received a call at 2:39 p.m. Thursday afternoon. Croton Fire Department also responded to the scene.

The ice cream machine that injured Moir is being replaced by the company, according to Michael Grant, owner of the Black Cow.

The ice cream store has gained popularity in the village for serving seasonal, homemade, natural ice creams and popsicles. The store was purchased by Moir in 2010 after being run by two different owners, including Grant.

The outpouring of support and concern for 1) Lisa and 2) the shoppe was tremendous. Friends and relatives stepped in to work with Lisa's staff to get the Blue Pig up and running full speed ahead. Lawyers, doctors, residents, every day citizens moved right in to make ice cream from Lisa's special all natural recipes and served the public after the Board of Health declared the shop clean and pure and ready to go again. When we told Lisa about the "Croton rapid response team" to her emergency she sighed deeply and even managed a smile as she slid back into her drugged sleep. She was so worried about not being able to serve the wonderful attendees at Summerfest this weekend. But be assured the Blue Pig will be opening and your favorite flavors will be plentiful...... God Bless Lisa!
