60th Anniversary Events

Opening Day
  • More than 780 employees, retirees and special guests gathered under the big tent on the ESC campus to celebrate opening day on Sept. 1. This year’s event was even bigger, as District Superintendent Jo Anne Antonacci kicked off the 60th anniversary celebration of Monroe 2–Orleans BOCES with several surprises. The program began with an inspirational video featuring individuals discussing what BOCES 2 means to them. Current and former employees, component districts, business partners and parents of our students were all represented.
60K for 60 Years
  • The 60th Anniversary celebration continued at our “60K for 60 Years” fun walk on Sept. 22. Nearly 200 employees and retirees walked a one kilometer loop, played lawn games, danced and visited on the back lawn behind ESC. The joy and laughter at this informal picnic was a testament to the camaraderie of our organization.
    BOCES 2 Night at the Amerks
    • Our 60th anniversary celebration continued with a special night out at the Rochester Americans hockey game on Jan. 29. Not only is it our 60th anniversary, but it’s also the Amerks’ 60th anniversary! BOCES 2 employees, retirees and their families enjoyed exclusive discount tickets to the game.
    Journeying Jewel
    • All year long we’re celebrating our 60th Anniversary and everything that makes our BOCES special. As part of the 60th Anniversary celebration, BOCES 2 is giving its employees the opportunity to tell their colleagues how important they are to the success of our BOCES. Enter, the Journeying Jewel, the brainchild of the 60th Anniversary Planning Committee. This giant gem is a symbol of hard work and dedication to our students. When an employee receives the Journeying Jewel, they will have three days to pass it along to someone else who they think is a shining star.
