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

“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.

What’s Up Peekskill? Spring ahead!

Got a lot going on this weekend. Tons of music, Birdsall House anniversary, swing dancing and Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, (or weeks, it lasts until the 19th).
