About Adam and Renee:

Adam and Renee made the decision to move their family to Rochester a few years ago, after clarifying their desire to be closer to family and make some changes in their hectic lives. Adam grew up here and has fond memories of the city -- running around Midtown Plaza with his friends, riding the Park Ave #1 route to Charlotte Beach with his sister and grandmother for a frozen custard, ice skating downtown in winter, the Corn Hill and Lilac festivals… he could go on and on. He left Rochester to pursue his education and build a career. After many many years away, he and his family recently moved back to the city. He also brought his business and now employs 40 people locally. Adam is excited to be back. It's home. And that means something. He is grateful for all his friends and family here, but is saddened a bit by the decline in the city.

Adam and Renee live in the city and are fully aware of the challenges of raising kids in the city. But they believe in the values cities bring to our lives. They believe in pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods that encourage people to know and support their neighbors and neighborhood businesses, use their cars less and contribute to a vital community. Active and involved neighborhoods, regardless of where you live, help decrease crime and contribute to the overall happiness and satisfaction of the people who live there. is our attempt to get involved and try to add to the community.

Thank you for visiting and come back anytime.

    If you want a big dose of "hometown pride", consider reading my book titled "Reflections on Big Spring - A History of Pittsford, NY and The Genesee River Valley". More than half of its 300 pages deal specifically with Rochester's proud heritage and will cause any Rochester resident to stand tall and be proud of their hometown.

    PS- Renee where can I send you a copy?

    There are many wonderful events that occur on a regularly in Rochester, NY. To help plant a seed in the Rochester community, I have written my second book entitled, "It's All About School." This book manual-in-one was written to encourage elementary and secondary grade level students to enjoy life, value education, and focus on future life goals. Some of the topics include bullying, conflict resolution, and many other topics youth may encounter on a daily basis. The book is in a soft cover format as well as an e-book on Amazon Kindle (Author Karen Ward-Wilder-It's All About School). Adam & Renee, please let me know where I can forward you a copy of the listed youth educational book.
