Center Seeks Pickup Truck for Long-Term Relationship

Big Red, the trusty 20-year-old Ford F-250 pickup truck at Chapin Mill used for plowing snow and other truck-worthy duties, is nearing the end of its useful life. We may be able to squeeze one more winter out of it, but if you happen to know of anyone with a well-maintained pickup truck to sell or donate please contact Tom Kowal at 585-766-4739 or

Ideally, our next truck would be OK to drive in to Rochester to clear the parking lot and street at Arnold Park after a heavy snow. If you’ve ever tried to get to a sitting after a large snowstorm, you’ve learned that the City sometimes takes a few days to get to our side of the street.
