ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) — Organizers of Jewish Senior Life’s independent living community, The Summit at Brighton, held their annual classic car show on Sunday, in honor of Father’s Day.
Cars were parked along Summit Circle Drive and roads around the summit on Sunday afternoon, with a parade following the event around the tower and cottages of the Farash Jewish Home.
Gene Trotta, executive director of catering at Jewish Senior Life and organizer of the event, said he expected between 20 and 30 different cars, such as a 1932 DeSoto and a 1965 Austin-Healey.
Trotta also said a vehicle that is a unique addition is a 1957 RTS bus, which he hoped would bring back memories for residents.
“We are very happy to host the motor show again,” said Trotta. “Our residents enjoy reminiscing and sharing experiences with family and friends. It’s a privilege to set up something like this for them every year.
Jewish Senior Life is a retirement community that serves people of different faiths and backgrounds. Officials said the community offers all levels of care, from independent living to skilled nursing, as well as programs and services for people living off campus.
