Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters Moving in MRB
A newsletter for
volunteers of Strong
Memorial Hospital
Susan A. Sullivan
Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters in the Flaum Atrium will soon have a new café in the
former Au Bon Pain space at the western end of the north corridor. Construction is
underway for a new state-of-the art café featuring the finest and freshest coffee
selections along with quality products that are proven winners.
New coffee choices will be available including Joe Nitro - a cold brew coffee
infused with nitrogen and served on tap. A premium blend single cup pour over coffee
will offered in addition to a variety of coffee beans for purchase. The new café will also
feature “grab and go” food items along with fresh ice cream. The café will have seating
for customers in a cozy, relaxed setting.
Joe Nitro Coffee
Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters selects high quality Arabica beans from coffee farms
around the world. They sample roast and cup beans in small batches constantly to
ensure consistent taste throughout the harvest season.
All three of Strong Hospital Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters give a percentage of
every purchase to Friends of Strong. Over the last 10 years, $3.6 million has been
donated by Finger Lakes for patient care needs at Strong Memorial Hospital.
Fifteenth Annual Rochester River Run
Thank you for supporting the Fifteenth Annual Rochester River Run/Walk 5k on Sunday,
April 17, at Genesee Valley Park. The event was our most successful run/walk ever with
nearly 1,000 participants! Everyone enjoyed the cool spring weather and refreshments.
Prizes were awarded to the top pledge collectors and runners in various age categories.
We were fortunate to raise nearly $40,000 to benefit transplant patients and their
families. The Sixteenth Annual Rochester River Run/Walk 5k will be held on April 23,
2017. Details will follow in future Volunteer Update newsletters.
New Staff at Friends’ Office
In the past several months we welcomed two new secretaries to our team! Suzanne
Stafford and Jackie Johnson have joined the Friends of Strong staff as ‘time as reported’
secretaries. TAR, or time as reported, allows us to bring paid staff in as needed for
certain special projects or programs that do not need staff attention year round. These
wonderful ladies will be assisting the office during our peak volunteer recruiting times in
the spring, summer, and fall (about 6 months out of the year.)
The TAR’s have a dedicated office space located in Joyce Stadtmiller’s former
office. If you see any of these gals in the next several weeks, please say hello and give
them a warm Friends of Strong welcome!
Be sure to mark your calendar with the following upcoming Friends of Strong events…
 Friends of Strong Annual Celebration Luncheon will be held on Thursday,
October 6 at noon in the Flaum Atrium. Invitations will be mailed later this
summer. Be sure to R.S.V.P.
 Friends in Good Taste: Beer and Food Pairing fundraiser will be held on
Saturday, October 15 from 2-5 p.m. at Lovin’ Cup Bistro and Brews.
