Calendar updated!

Hi all.

I was putting out paper recycling on Tuesday night when I realized that I had not updated the Peekskill Rocks 2019 Google calendar. It struck me that I may be putting out paper (a ton of paper recycling after the holidays) and it might not even be a recycling day the next day. Sure enough, I checked the city website and I was a week early. I drove around town the next day and saw many other people with their paper out. I assumed they were Peekskill Rocks fans. This made me a bit happy to see so many Rocks fans, but also sad that I may have let them down with faulty info on the website.

This is a reminder that this website is run by two fellas for free who have very little free time!

Regardless, the calendar is now updated and should be all current according the city’s latest calendar information.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

🚴‍♂️ Critical Mass ✊

Someone just passed Peekskill Rocks a note about an event tomorrow night:

A group of bicyclists in Halloween costumes will be gathering by the riverfront this Friday night at 6:30PM. Word is they’ll be storming the streets of Peekskill ahead of the nor’easter as Peekskill joins the worldwide movement of Critical Mass.

For details on the event and to register, visit the website.

Critical Mass Peekskill

What is up, Peekskill? Horror Folk, Pumpkin Cheesecake and Ultimate Adult Warm Apple Cider

The chill is coming. The leaves are changing. The folk is horroring. The cider is warming. Its a time of change. Embrace it, because hugs are warm.
