What's Cooking? ER's Cookbooks: A Lesson in History

Submitted by Anita M. Mance, Historian

In December, a new cookbook was added to the collection in the Local History Room -Centanni! – St. Nicholas Society Celebrates 100 Years of Italian-American Food, Family and Community. With over 250 photos and about 180 recipes, the book honors the Italian-American heritage in East Rochester. The book serves to remind us that each cookbook in our collection helps us understand the culture of our community, the commodities that were for sale as noted in the advertisements in some of the books, and the markets where foods were sold.

Originally the equipment used in firefighting was a hand drawn hose cart and ladder wagon. In 1925 it was decided that the village needed a real fire truck not a commercial truck converted to one.

TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE 2024

April 8th, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm

The Town/Village of East Rochester will be hosting a gathering event for the community to view the Solar Eclipse. Everyone is welcome to participate with us on the upper soccer fields of the East Rochester School District Campus.

The Rochester/Monroe County area is anticipating between 300 to 500 thousand people coming into our region.  The thruway roads will be closed and all of the hotels are booked!  So, with all that being said, plan to attend the event of the year that East Rochester will be hosting.

We have several vendors who will be selling food to the community including: Kona Ice, GG’s Pizza and St. Nicholas Society(Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Italian Sausage and beverages).

If your looking for glasses a limited supply(2 per family) will be available in the Library on a first come first served basis for East Rochester residents starting March 25th. Additional glasses may be available at the event.
