The Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct are happy to be working with the Village of Dobbs Ferry to make the entrance to the trail accessible to all—even those who are handicapped. The Village has given $10,000 to the project which will be credited to the mandatory matching funds account required for the Recreational Trails Grant.

In addition, hundreds of people throughout the Rivertowns and beyond are continuing to help the Friends to reach their match. Some bought raffle tickets for a bike last year. Others are giving now in response to the Meet The Match campaign.

The Friends would like to thank everyone for their generous donations so that we can make this exciting project a reality. Special thanks to Jason at Endless Trail, the bike shop in Dobbs Ferry, for his contribution. The drawing for the bike took place on November 20, 2010. The winners of the raffle were:

1st Prize: Eugenie Anderson of Washington DC who won the Transeo bike.
2nd Prize: Soo Chin of Dobbs Ferry who won Dinner for Two at Orissa restaurant in Dobbs Ferry.
3rd Prize: Jo Brimmer of Dobbs Ferry who won a basket of Aqueduct gifts.
