Bring your lunch to watch a self-narrative history video of the Rochester area created by John Boeberitz in 1976.  His narrative of every building and the events on Main Street, University Drive, and Walnut Street in downtown Rochester is folksy, informative, fun, and fascinating.  You will hear stories you have never heard before!  John A. Boeberitz was the Chairman of the 1969 Rochester Centennial Celebration and was known as "Mr. Rochester".  Incorporating vintage photos, he takes the viewer on an interesting journey up the east side of Main Street from the south trestle of the DUR to Orion Junction and returning down the west side of Main Street.  He includes side-trips such as Halbach Field, the Detroit Sugar Company, Bloomer Park, Yates Cider Mill, the DUR, railroads and others.  The videos also cover University Drive and Walnut Street. 
Drinks and dessert provided.
