ROCHESTER — Fire Chief Mark Klose is pleased to announce the Rochester Fire Department’s participation in the city’s End 68 Hours of Hunger Program.

The End 68 Hours of Hunger program, is a non-profit community organization that helps provide food to school children that may otherwise go without during their weekend break from school. Rochester’s program, assisted by City Manager Dan Fitzpatrick and sponsored by the Rochester Rotary Club, provides children with meal bags that include two breakfasts, two lunches and three dinners.

End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive at school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive at school on Monday morning. This weekend program, established in New Hampshire in 2011, puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend.

This is the second time that the Rochester Fire Department has helped the program by stuffing bags with assorted food, such as cereal, crackers, vegetables, peanut butter and oatmeal.

“We’re grateful that we can help out this cause that supports so many children in our community,” Chief Klose said. “We thank City Manager Fitzpatrick and the Rotary Club for leading this initiative and we look forward to volunteering in the future.”

When the program’s volunteer numbers were low, City Manager Fitzpatrick asked Chief Klose if on-duty firefighters would be willing to help. On each occasion, the on-duty shift, which has happened to be the D Shift both times, has volunteered. Most recently, Lt. Mike George and firefighters Jason Laferte and Matt Parker helped stuff 125 bags in about 30 minutes. The department’s prior participation in the program was led by Lt. George, firefighter Micah Ruel and firefighter Josh Biron.

End 68 Hours of Hunger is entirely volunteer based and contributes 100 percent of its funds to feeding at-risk children. For more information on the program and how to get involved, visit their website at http://www.end68hoursofhunger.org/.

Comcast and Rochester sign 10-year Cable Franchise

First-of-its-Kind Development for New Hampshire

Comcast Plans to Begin Construction in 2018 to Deliver a New Choice for Residents and Businesses

ROCHESTER — Comcast and the City of Rochester announced today they have signed a 10-year cable franchise, giving residents and businesses in Rochester a new choice for TV, internet, voice, home automation and wireless services.

In a first in New Hampshire’s history, construction of an overbuild to extend Comcast’s advanced network into the city will begin in 2018.

Comcast will also make available internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps for residents and 100 Gbps to business customers.

“We welcome and applaud Comcast’s commitment to serve Rochester with its innovative services, and we are exceptionally pleased that Rochester will soon be able to offer a new choice of television, internet, and phone providers to our residents and growing list of business owners,” said Rochester City Manager Daniel Fitzpatrick.

The buildout will benefit Rochester’s more than 30,000 residents and the city’s quickly growing business community. Rochester is already recognized as one of the most business-friendly cities in New Hampshire. The city is rated “A+” for business friendliness by Thumbtack, and the Rochester Economic Development Corporation provides business owners with a litany of resources and information on programs, incentives, and financing solutions.

Today, Comcast is available in 103 communities in New Hampshire and employs over 2,000 people in New Hampshire.

Comcast will offer Rochester customers its complete portfolio of Xfinity services, including:

Rochester businesses will also have access to the Comcast Business suite of products, which include

Of note, Granite State businesses have selected Comcast Business as the #1 telecom provider for the last five years in a row as part of the annual BOB/Best of Business Award from New Hampshire Business Review.

Comcast gives back to the communities where its employees and customers live and work and supports nonprofit organizations focused on digital inclusion, volunteerism and service. In New Hampshire, Comcast partners with organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girls Inc. and Boys & Girls Clubs. Also, Comcast’s Internet Essentials program is available throughout the Granite State. It is designed to help families with children in the National School Lunch Program as well as residents of HUD-assisted housing. Eligible customers can obtain Internet service for $9.95/month, participate in free digital literacy training programs and have the opportunity to buy a computer for less than $150.

“We are delighted to sign this 10 year franchise agreement with the City of Rochester and we are eager to bring our Xfinity and Comcast Business products and services to a city where there is clear consumer demand,” said Tracy Pitcher, Senior Vice President for Comcast’s Greater Boston Region.

ROCHESTER – City Manager Dan Fitzpatrick is pleased to unveil the latest chapter of the City Manager’s Corner video.

The City Manager’s Corner, a video series in which City Manager Fitzpatrick and his staff discuss a variety of city government topics, is released approximately every other month on the city’s video hub.

In this episode, Ian Rohrbacher, Chief Operator of Rochester’s Water Treatment Facility, joins City Manager Fitzpatrick to discuss the history of Rochester’s water department, where the city’s drinking water comes from and the infrastructure and treatment processes involved in bringing water from its source to residents’ tap.

“As a City Manager I work with every department in the city,” said City Manager Fitzpatrick, “I usually shock other departments when I say the water department is the most important city service. I say this with sincerity because the one service we rely on everyday is our water.”

On location at Rochester’s Surface Water Treatment Plant, the source for a majority of the city’s drinking water, the first segment touches upon the history of towns and villages, worldwide, strategically built in locations near a water source, proving Rochester is no exception as the city’s Water Treatment Facility sits next to the Rochester Reservoir. The pair dive into some of Rochester’s unique history, noting that surface water has been the city’s primary source of drinking water since 1880. Today, Rochester still heavily relies on surface water from the reservoir to serve its residents.

“I can speak to the water system and probably 85 to 90 percent of our residents rely on the public water supply,” said Rohrbacher, “Rochester is a blended system, meaning we supply most of our water through surface water, however we do have a Groundwater Treatment Facility that extracts some volume from a stratified-drift well.”

In the second part of the episode, Rohrbacher and City Manager Fitzpatrick take their conversation inside the the treatment facility to explore the ins and outs of the facility, from the chemical feed and bulk storage room to the drinking water quality lab. While inside, Rohrbacher explains the infrastructure behind the entire extraction to distribution process for a behind-the-scenes look at how residents receive their drinking water everyday.

This program will be repeated many times on the City of Rochester Government Channel, Metrocast Cable Ch. 26. For the cable schedule and more information the Government Channel please visit: https://www.rochesternh.net/rochester-government-channel

For more information on the Rochester Water Department and Water Treatment Facility, visit the the city’s website for contact information and to the latest water quality reports.

ROCHESTER — Superintendent Michael Hopkins is exceptionally pleased to announce that students in the Rochester Public Schools are “top of the class” in New Hampshire when it comes to reading!

Rochester Middle School students read for more than 300,000 minutes this summer, earning them the title of “Best in State” for New Hampshire in the 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. The school will be featured in 2018 Scholastic Book of World Records and will receive a commemorative plaque and a celebration kit to commemorate the students’ summer reading achievements.

“I am incredibly proud of our Middle School students and faculty for becoming statewide reading leaders,” Superintendent Hopkins said. “The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is a vital program that keeps learning going all year and prevents regression between school years.”

This summer, children all 50 states, Washington, D.C., two U.S. territories and 14 countries read 138,399,392 million minutes in the 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge.

The complete list of “Best in State” schools is available at www.scholastic.com/summer.

School administrators credit the work of teachers and specialists during the year, for making reading fun and motivating students during the school year to read all summer.

“Students at Rochester Middle School were introduced to the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge in May 2017 and were encouraged by their teachers to log in minutes almost as soon as the program started,” said Chris Evans, Reading Specialist at Rochester Middle School. “Getting students logged in and using the program before they left school for the summer and incentives such as pizza parties for the winning classes at each grade level contributed to our program’s success.”

The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is designed to help kids turn the “summer slide”—the learning loss which can occur over the summer months—into a “summer leap” by discovering the power and joy of reading for fun. This year’s theme, “Happy Camper: Take a Reading Adventure,” came to life featuring beloved Scholastic characters, including custom Dog Man illustrations from Dav Pilkey, bestselling author and illustrator of the Captain Underpants and Dog Man series and our Scholastic Summer Reading Global Ambassador. The program offered kids the chance to log their reading minutes to earn digital prizes as they completed weekly reading challenges, gaining access to 18 reading activities, including games, quizzes and videos based on popular children’s books. Parents and families also had access to free summer reading resources, including book lists across all age groups in both English and Spanish.

“Scholastic is immensely proud of the students who joined the 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge and read all summer long, taking their own reading adventures and logging more than 138 million minutes,” said Michael Haggen, Chief Academic Officer, Scholastic Education. “Thanks to the encouragement and support of their families, educators, public libraries and community organizations, these students have returned to school ready to learn and prepared for the current school year.”

2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge highlights:

  • Nearly 4,000 schools, libraries and community partners participated in this year’s Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge.
  • Students from the U.S. and around the world read a whopping total of 138,399,392 minutes! That’s the fifth year in a row kids logged more than 100 million minutes.
  • The top five U.S. states with the most summer reading minutes read by children are: Texas (28,468,135 reading minutes), Florida (10,243,733 reading minutes), Pennsylvania (7,967,560 reading minutes), Louisiana (7,782,666 minutes) and Massachusetts (7,275,762 reading minutes).
  • For the second year in a row, Scholastic sent two traveling Summer Reading Road Trip RVs across the U.S. to highlight the importance of summer reading and host reading festivals for kids and families in 50 cities. The RVs journeyed more than 10,000 miles from May through July and featured bestselling Scholastic authors and reading activities.
  • Three U.S. Governors and 42 Gubernatorial Spouses and 1 Lt. Governor signed on as Reading Ambassadors to help spread the message to kids in their respective states and territories about the importance of reading during the summer months. Scholastic donated 500 books to the school of each Reading Ambassador’s choice (for a total of 23,000 books), and many of the Ambassadors hosted reading events at these schools.

News Release From 110 Grill:

The program is unique to 110 Grill Rochester and will only be offered at this location.
