LIVINGSTON MANOR – The memory and legacy of Christopher Pekny, who tragically lost his life in 2021, continues to live on through his family and an outpouring of support from the community. The third annual Christopher Pekny Memorial Motor Show was held at the Robin Hood Diner in Livingston Manor on Saturday, September 16.
“It was a really, really nice turnout,” Jan Pekny, Christopher’s mother, said. “Everybody’s got a job to do and did it well. We had so many donations and had four 8-foot tables set up for that.”
There were about 40 entrants into the motor show, according to Jan, and she also said that 20 or 30 motorcycles drove by and joined in on the festivities.
Jan said that the Class of 2023 of Livingston Manor brought over some tacos and other food. Chick-E-Ribs BBQ out of Liberty was there and also supplied food for the motor show. That includes their famous Pekny Dog, which they named in honor of Chris.
“There were so many donations and any support, big or small, is much appreciated,” Jan said. “We can’t do it without them.”
Jan said that they raised $500 each for both Livingston Manor and Roscoe Central School Districts, which goes towards scholarship money for students. The money raised at the motor show also helps support Jan’s grandson, Christopher’s son.
