Wells Fargo Stagecoach, English and Western Riding Classes Highlight Peekskill Rotary’s 47th Annual Horse Show & Country Fair
-- Rotary Fundraiser to Benefit Peekskill & Cortlandt Communities --
The Rotary Club of Peekskill will host its 47th Annual Horse Show and Country Fair Sept. 23 and 24 at the Blue Mt. Reservation in Peekskill.
A Wells Fargo Stagecoach and team of four horses will offer rides out of the Old West while complementing western riding competition on Saturday.
Admission and parking are free and the show will go on, rain or shine. Competition and attractions will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, and 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
This is the only show in Westchester County with both English and Western riding classes. There are 28 Western classes with eight championships on Saturday, and 28 English classes with eight championships on Sunday. Riders from stables throughout the tristate area participate in the show.
Fair attractions include pony and hay rides, a country fair and craft market, bounce and slide rides for the children, and a “Kountry Kitchen” offering home-baked goods, pumpkins, apples and mums. In the food tent, Rotarians serve up burgers, hot dogs, chicken, sausage and peppers, fries, beverages, ice cream and pretzels. Breakfast is available for early-arrivers.
The highly regarded Masonic Safety ID Program offered by Courtlandt Masonic Lodge #34 will be offered again this year. The program provides parents at no charge with a CD including a child’s photo and background data to help law enforcement agencies more quickly recover a missing child.
Peekskill Rotary President Chappy Manzer said, “We enjoy producing this show and are proud that it is recognized as one of the ‘must see’ family events in our community. We also are thankful for the hundreds of Rotarians who have worked so hard to make this event successful for the past 46 years.
“The horse show continues to be our club’s main fundraiser, with all proceeds donated back into the community and to meet international humanitarian needs.”
Blue Mt. Reservation is located on Welcher Ave. off Route 9.
The Rotary Club of Peekskill was chartered 98 years ago. The club has about 90 members representing a cross-section of the Peekskill and Cortlandt communities.
Westchester County has a long and storied history with the automobile dating back to the turn of the last century when in 1908 it first hosted the Briarcliff Grand Prix in which autos of the day traveled a 30 mile lap around the county ten times. It was said that over three hundred thousand spectators lined the route as people came out to see these new-fangled machines. It is in this spirit that Hudson Valley Car Week will commence with the inaugural running of the Peekskill Vintage Grand Prix. This automotive event will have vintage cars (1967 and older) traverse a 2 mile route that will take them through downtown Peekskill as well as along the beautiful waterfront showcasing the spectacular Hudson River.

Excited to be back in action, and making our debut at the Hudson Room. Located in the heart of Peekskill, we're looking forward to gracing their large stage. And we need it, we'll be running with four horns, keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and percussion and of course the wonderful Catie Graves behind the mic.
While performing the standard funk favorites and those sweet soul classics by such artists as Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, MJ and Prince, we'll be incorporating those soon to be timeless 90's R&B songs we grew up with. Sound good, so far? Well, we have to get greedy too. We'll be performing our entire original 2016 EP "Peaceful Observer" and both sides of our 2017 single "The Game." A few more of our tunes we have yet to record, and a few more no one has ever heard yet round out this funkin' night of jams.
Bring your hunger, bring your thirst and bring some comfy shoes and prep yourself for an enjoyable night of dinner, drink and dance!

HVCCA is partnering with NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital to host the Global Big Latch On!
This collaboration was inspired by the artwork of Asya Reznikov, "Expression" and "Wet Bar," currently on display as part of "Between I & Thou." Reznikov's artwork features the theme of lactation, both in her photographic rendition of Manet's "A Bar at the Folies-Bergère," where she is depicted wearing her hands-free pump, and her video, "Expression," where she hand-expresses breastmilk into crystal goblets. "Expression" also features a fantastic hand-made resin frame with a variety of galactagogues (plants that promote lactation). Artist Asya Reznikov will be in attendance for this event to mingle with the mothers and talk about her work casually.
What it is: For the Global Big Latch on event, HVCCA is opening its doors to women to gather to breastfeed and offer support to each other. Our doors will open at 9:30 am, and the latch on begins officially at 10:30 am sharp. Official counters will tally the number of women and babies latched at the same time, and the totals will be reported to be included in the global count. Last year, 17,852 women latched 17,992 babies at the same time at over 758 locations in 28 countries! HVCCA is proud to offer a unique setting for this incredible event, engaging the women and children in attendance with contemporary art. Siblings are welcome, as we will have storytelling and coloring available for young children to partake in while their mothers get settled. HVCCA and NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital are also holding a free raffle with several great prizes for attendees! Babywearing International of Rockland-Westchester will also be in the house, so don your favorite baby and tell them who you're wearing!
Details: Parking is available on-site in the HVCCA parking lot, as well as on both sides of Park and Grant streets for the day. Parking in Beverage World's lot is prohibited. Limited stroller parking will be available within HVCCA, so we do recommend babywearing if possible. HVCCA's doors will open at 9:30 am, allowing time for mothers and children to enter, sign in, and explore the space a bit. At 10:15 we will ask that mothers begin to take their place for the Latch On, which will begin promptly at 10:30 am. The Latch On count takes about 5 to 10 minutes maximum, though mothers are welcome to continue nursing their babies until finished.
About the Global Big Latch On: Global Big Latch On events are highly successful, targeted community development initiatives that raise awareness of breastfeeding, encourage the formation of support networks between breastfeeding persons, and aim to normalize breastfeeding as a part of daily life. Global Big Latch On events take place at registered locations around the world, where women gather together to breastfeed and offer peer support to each other. Their friends, family and community join this celebration to promote and support breastfeeding. Volunteers from within the community host each location, hosting a Global Big Latch On event creates a lasting support network for the community. The Global Big Latch On takes place annually over two days during World Breastfeeding Week (1st – 7th August). As a worldwide peer support and community development event, it aims to strengthen national and global support for breastfeeding and to improve the health of children and women around the world.
Global Big Latch On events aim to protect, promote & support breastfeeding families by: - Provide support for communities to identify and grow opportunities to provide on-going breastfeeding support and promotion in local communities. - Raise awareness of breastfeeding support and knowledge available locally and globally. - Help communities positively support breastfeeding in public places. - Make breastfeeding as normal part of day-to-day life at a local community level. - Increase support for women who breastfeed – women are supported by their partners, family and their communities. - Ensure communities have the resources to advocate for coordinated appropriate and accessible breastfeeding support services.
