City of Rochester Calls for Milestone Anniversaries from Businesses

City of Rochester Seeking Businesses Celebrating Milestone Anniversaries

This year marks the 200th Anniversary of the founding of the City of Rochester. Founded in 1817, Rochester is the first settlement in Oakland County. In addition to many events taking place in celebration of the Bicentennial, the City of Rochester would like to recognize businesses that are also celebrating anniversaries in 2017.
