The landscape of our parks has been slowly changing slowly over time, and it's our trees that have reflected this change most. Many were lost to old age, severe storms, and erosion. Besides providing a lifetime of natural beauty, they keep the surrounding air cool during hot weather, allow habitats for birds, and offer unique spots for picnickers. It's the Parks Committee's goal to see that our parks retain their forested areas and to establish new plantings where needed. Currently, we are working to re-establish the major hardwoods such as white and red oak to the park. Just as with the benches, any individual, family, or organization can sponsor to have a tree planted in the park of their choice. They are usually three to four-year-old established trees when planted and have a plaque, mounted to a stone, set at the base of the tree.

As of March 2021, the cost to sponsor begins at $350, depending on tree choice. Larger caliper trees can be purchased at a higher cost. This includes the plaque with its inscription. The Parks Committee and the East Rochester Department of Public Works try in every way to accommodate a sponsor's request, but some tree types and their placements may be decided on by the committee.

Should you wish to sponsor a tree or have and questions or concerns please feel free to call Mark McDermott, Chairperson, East Rochester Parks Committee, at (585) 586-7756.

EAST ROCHESTER VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT--125 YEARS OF SERVICE

EAST ROCHESTER VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT--125 YEARS OF SERVICE Read more

On May 23, 1898, a group of businessmen from Despatch (as East Rochester was known until 1906) met at Branshaud’s Hall on East Commercial Street to set up the first fire department.  On May 29th, the first official meeting was held, and the Despatch Fire District was formed.  During subsequent meetings committees were formed to find estimates for needed equipment, as well as for property and a fire hall.  It was determined that $1800.00 was the amount needed to outfit this first department.  Equipment included:  one dozen rubber coats, boots, and helmets, a hose cart, an alarm bell, a ladder truck, and three chemical carts.  Needless to say, the first fire trucks were either pulled by horses or pulled by hand.
