From the Supervisor – June 2018

By on May 30, 2018

We’ve had an eventful spring season here at Greece Town Hall, and are excited for the upcoming summer activities!

Every year in observance of Arbor Day, the Town of Greece plants a tree to both honor a member of the community and to promote the importance of trees for our environment. This year’s tree was planted in memory of the late Eileen Coyle, founder and CEO of Monroe Ambulance. I was joined by many of Eileen’s family members, friends, community members, and elected officials for the ceremony. Eileen was very well respected in her field and held various leadership positions. Everyone who had the honor of knowing her knew that she had a zest for life and always made family her number one priority. The tree chosen by Eileen’s family to be planted in her honor was the Eastern Red Bud Tree, which was planted on the Greece Town Hall Campus near the Kids Canyon Playground.

Several new businesses have opened up in Greece this past month. As you probably know, Chick-fil-A is now open at 2140 West Ridge Road. The restaurant, owned by Greece resident Alan Taylor, offers a variety of fresh food and many daily hand-made menu items. Another business, Something Delicious, recently opened at 2455 Ridgeway Avenue after owner, Mina Rivazfar-Hoyt, decided to move the business to Greece after being in the City of Rochester for three years. Something Delicious offers wedding cakes, custom cakes, cupcakes, and French macaroons. Another business that recently opened in Greece is Vision Nissan. Owned by Dan Edwards, Danielle DiLorenzo, and Mario Marino, Vision Nissan Greece is located at 4000 West Ridge Road. I wish all the new business owners great success! The Town of Greece is happy to have you!

Be sure to mark your calendars for our Annual Jerry J. Helfer Memorial Food Truck Rodeo event! This event will be held on Sunday, June 10th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm and will be held in conjunction with the first Greece Summer Concert Series featuring Elvis Lives! Jerry Helfer was a man of exceptional character and virtue who always exhibited kindness to anyone he encountered. Throughout his life, Jerry dedicated his time and talents to making our community a better place. Proceeds collected from the Food Truck Rodeo will go towards the Jerry J. Helfer Youth Engagement Scholarship.

As always, I enjoy hearing feedback from residents about programming and other Town-related issues. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office or visit our website.
