Healthy relationships conversation and clearing of your mind on tap for this weekends wholesome events

Before and after the Peekskill St. Patrick’s Parade, there are plenty of things to do this weekend that will have your mind open and your heart at ease.  

The first event, “A Community Conversation on Healthy Relationships” will occur at Mount Olivet Baptist Church on Saturday March 9. This engaging and informative event will focus on fostering healthy relationships within our community. Registration and a light continental breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m. This is a great opportunity for participants to gather and have light discussion before the workshop begins. From 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Kymberly McNair – Senior Director of Social Transition for My Sisters Place, leads a heart-to-heart talk where participants are encouraged to have open dialogue which is crucial for building strong relationships. Participants will be able to share their experiences and learn from others.  McNair will cover various topics, including communication, trust, and self-care. So don’t miss this opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and gain valuable insights. For more information contact Mt. Olivet Baptist Church at [email protected] or 914-737-7567.

 

The second event taking place prior to the St. Patrick’s Parade is a moderate 4-5 mile trail loop hike around Depew Park and Blue Mountain sponsored by Peekskill Hikes.  The group will meet at the Depew Park Pool at 9:00 am sharp and take an easy pace so that no one gets left behind. In total, the hike will take about two and a half hours and with enough time to get ready for the parade at 3:00 p.m. For more information or to let Peeksill Hikes know you are interested in going, click here to respond to their Facebook Event. 

 

The third event of the weekend is a Winter Tree Identification that will be held on Sunday, March 10 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at Bear Mountain State Park.
