Rochester won’t be 150 years old until 2019, but planning for a major three-day (September 13, 14, 15 of 2019) celebration has already begun. “Prelude to Sesquicentennial” Events will also be held in 2018. A ten-member Rochester Sesquicentennial Committee has been holding monthly meetings to plan these celebrations. Committee co-chairs Carolyn Moore, and Ruth Ann Theis report that initial planning for the event, scheduled for September 13-15, 2019 is progressing nicely. Anyone interested in helping plan activities or being involved in some way, please contact Carolyn or Ruth Ann.
