The Cider Salon Cares About Peekskill

The Cider Salon Cares About Peekskill

Here’s a recap of the last Cider Salon. Our dynamic discussion kept us warm despite the Arctic Vortex!

We talked a lot about Peekskill, how things are now, and how we might imagine a Better Future. Every suggestion had at least one advocated, some had more.

Areas of concentration: The arts, building bridges between different cultures, and creating better circumstances for the young people of Peekskill.

We need sustainable programs – more, and better maintained, green areas; businesses pitch in to do more to maintain the city, maybe something along the adopt-a-block model; some kind of neighborhood watch, looking out for each other.

Destination Peekskill: If Peekskill is ever going to become more of a destination, we’re going to need to have a lot more retail shopping opportunities.

Small businesses: Peekskill would benefit from having a lot more small businesses – we should provide incentives and supports to get more of them.

Teaching, Mentoring – it would be good to teach art, to mentor, to give the young people of Peekskill a sense of broadening possibilities.

Progressive – It would be good for Peekskill to more welcoming, particularly toward LGBTQ, Millennials, Disabled.

The Arts – the arts can provide much more increase of well-being and engine of positive growth.

      Hi Solange!

      I just encountered the work yogini for the first time earlier this week, and now here you are.

      Yes, the Cider Salons happen every week, Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9:00. Everyone is welcome. If we’re friends on Facebook I will invite you, and also let you know if we’re skipping a week.
