Rotary Members With Government Officials at Shed the Meds Peekskill
Past president Ron Worth made combating opioid abuse one of his main causes to address. Peekskill Rotary has continued to support this cause by supporting Senator Terrence Murphy's "Shed the Meds" program when it was brought to the Field Library in downtown Peekskill on August 9, 2016. 
"Shed the Meds" is a program that offers people the opportunity to drop off expired, or unwanted prescription medication, keeping them out of the hands people that may abuse them, or sell them on the street.
