What’s Up Peekskill?

Are you tired of the rain? Is the cold getting into your bones? Is your skin dry and cracking? Then let Dr. Peekskill help you out. Come downtown for a benefit at the Paramount to help pay for the Peekskill Fire Department’s 4th of July fireworks. Come to the Hat Factory for wine tasting and pottery sale to benefit the Peekskill Education Fund. Donate toys at the Peekskill Coffee House for the Love Holds Life Children’s Cancer Foundation. There’s also a new record store. Feel better yet? Good. Then the doctor orders you to do a little rehab with good old drinking and live music, and even some swing dancing! Come on and rock, Peekskill.
