Serving Our Community Since 1919
Service Above Self
We Bring Our Community Together
From the days of its infancy, Peekskill Rotary made itself known throughout the Rotary district. The Peekskill Club was barely a year old when it was invited to attend an inter-city meet in Poughkeepsie. The club decided to attend, in force and with gusto, with all members sporting “Peekskill” shirts inscribed with blue letters. A flowing yellow tie added to the ensemble, which included black or blue pants with white coats. All cars were decorated with a large sign bearing the words, “Peekskill Rotary Club.”
Garbed in flowing red caps, this same group of Rotarians definitely placed Peekskill on the Rotary map when it attended a Rotary conference in the Bronx a few years later. After the meeting, every club in the district knew that Peekskill had a spirited club. This reputation has been maintained through the years, as has its fine record of attendance.
