The festive mood was contagious at the annual Monroe County Bar Association’s Bench and Bar Holiday gathering on Dec. 7. Held at the Legacy Tower Wintergarden once again, passed hors d’ oeuvres and five or six food stations made for a pleasant evening of conversation, food and drink.
MCBA President Jill Cicero thanked the sponsors which included platinum sponsor Kammholz Law PLLC; gold sponsor Canandaigua National Bank; and silver sponsors Counsel Press Inc., The Daily Record and Harter Secrest & Emery LLP.
In thanking the local judiciary, Cicero called all judges present by name to assemble an impressive group for a photo. As the judges posed for a photo, Rochester City Court Judge Thomas Rainbow Morse made a point to recognize New York Supreme Court Judge Francis Affronti, who will be retiring from the bench later this month.
