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!

What’s Up Peekskill? The Force! But not your pants…

Happy Star Wars Day everyone. May the Forth (Force?) be with you. And also with your pants, that you will take off on Friday. Because you will bare it all on Saturday when you go a-gardening. It’s also Cinqo de Mayo on Friday, whether you have your pants on or not. But it’s all okay, because we can laugh it all off (pun intended) on Sunday. Enjoy. You’re welcome. Rock on, Peekskill!
