18 Things We're Thankful For in the ROC

There are so many things we're thankful for in Rochester. We thought it'd be best to share a quick pictorial note of thanks to all who support Rochester and make it the best city it can be. We can't possibly thank everyone who's been apart of the city's reformation over the past few years in this post, but just know we do in spirit. And it's really hard to cut this down to just 18 Things We're Thankful For in the ROC...

THANK YOU.
