What’s Up Peekskill? Hippiefest!

What up P-Rockers? Hippies, karaoke, Lego, wine tasting. More stormy weather. If you can’t rock out with wine and legos and hippies and karaoke and thunder and lightening then you really need to get out more! Good thing Peekskill delivers this weekend!

Peekskill Democratic Primary Sept 12!

Don’t forget to vote in the primaries! Find your polling place here.

From an article on Patch with info on all primaries throughout Westchester:

Topping the races is the contentious fight for Peekskill Common Council. There are five people vying for three lines on the Democratic ballot in November, and two of them are running on the GOP slate.

The five seeking the Democratic lines:

    Robert M. Sullivan
    Colin D. Smith
    Ramon A. Fernandez
    Luis A. Segarra
    Vanessa B. Agudelo

Segarra and Sullivan are running mates, picked by the Peekskill Republican Committee to run on its “Peekskill United” slate. Their entry into the race, forcing a Democratic Primary, caused fury among city Democrats. It led to the usual intra-party in-fighting following New York State’s arcane election laws.

What’s Up Peekskill? River tours are back.

Hey P-Rockers, Welcome to Memorial Day weekend! Get your white pants out… if you’re into that. Wish the weather was better, though — (Not my fault). But River tours are back, and we got lots of good stuff going — as usual! So get out and Rock!

Environmental activities: Solarize Peekskill and Tapped film!

If you’re not snowed in for the rest of the week, get out to these two great environmental events.

Solarize Peekskill Campaign Launch!

Wed. March 15, 7 pm
Peekskill Field Library
Neighborhood Center Room
4 Nelson Ave., Peekskill NY

http://www.solarizewestchester.com/Peekskill/

“The City of Peekskill is excited to participate as one of three selected Westchester communities for the 2017 Solarize Westchester solar energy campaign. Through this collaborative outreach campaign, ‘Solarize Peekskill’ will directly connect City residents and business owners with solar industry leaders in order to gain information and access to the financial benefits of alternative energy through group purchasing. The ‘Solarize Peekskill’ program will complement current City efforts focused on sustainability and progressive action. On behalf of the Common Council, Peekskill looks forward to working with Solarize Westchester over the next twelve weeks.”
–Mayor Frank Catalina, City of Peekskill

“Solarize Peekskill presents an exciting opportunity for residents and local business to explore solar energy systems. In my experience, the Solarize Westchester program provides valuable information session and technical assistance to interested participants in order to realize tangible financial and environmental benefits. As City Manager, it is my pleasure to welcome Solarize Westchester, and I look forward to a successful campaign.”
–City Manager Richard A. Leins, City of Peekskill

Monthly Environmental Film Series!

“TAPPED” shows us the Maine village that struggles against corporate attempts to bottle their local spring water and the Texas town that lives with the toxic pollution from making plastic. This is a sampling of the evils of the bottled water industry.

Film followed by Q&A with Greta Zarro from Food and Water Watch.

Snow, Farmer’s and Shopping in Peekskill

You may need that snow shovel one last time on Sunday. The last snowy hurrah! before the spring solstice.
peekskill-weather-3-20
But, spring is in the air downtown this Saturday.

There’s the Peekskill Farmer’s Market making it’s 2016 debut. It will be held not in it’s usual place on Bank Street, but on the plaza in front of the Peekskill Field Library. More info here.
