Trees Felled During Windstorm

Please consider making a donation to the Britton Road Association.

The Britton Road and Stone Road cemeteries were featured on the WHEC morning show.  Pat Taney interviewed Helen Gulack about the history of the cemeteries. 

On March 8, 2017, Rochester NY experienced wind gusts up to 80 mph.  Eleven trees at the Stone Road - Waad Hakolel cemetery were seriously damaged or uprooted and fell to the ground.  Remarkably, most of the towering evergreens in the Beth Hamedresh-Beth Israel section landed in between rows of monuments and although the asphalt path was seriously damaged, the  monuments remained upright.
