The florists at Flowers By David Anthony craft bouquets and arrangements for every occasion. They assemble posies into pots intended just to bring a smile to someone's face. They weave together roses, lilies, carnations, and chysanthemums into a basket exploding with golden petals, a particular favorite of well-wishers.

The coaches at Peekskill Fencing Center are living evidence fencing involves far more than lucky lunges. Some have competed at the national level, and two have spent years coaching teams—Cal Schlick, for example, taught at the U.S. Naval Academy, and has medaled in several tournaments. Applying their skills and experience, the instructors lead lessons for all ages and experience levels.
Classes cover beginner and intermediate techniques with the foil, as well as the Japanese art of Kendo and sessions on competitive play. Peekskill Fencing Center delivers personal attention to all of its students and ensures that no one's sword has the same nickname. Pupils can also schedule private classes to receive even more thorough feedback on their technique. Students of all skill levels strive to sharpen their focus, footwork, agility, and balance with each practice. And, for the opportunity to see a professional sparring demonstration, they can even plan a birthday party through the center.

With a bevy of activities to choose from, fall fanatics can race through the hay maze, pet furry friends at the animal farm, and buy, nibble, or juggle fresh apple-cider donuts.
