Rotary Fundraiser to Benefit Peekskill & Cortlandt Communities
 
The Rotary Club of Peekskill will host its 47th Annual Horse Show and Country Fair September 23 – 24 at the Blue Mt. Reservation in Peekskill. 
 
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 tri-state 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.
 
Peekskill Rotary President Pete Goodale 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.
