Peter Rumora Memorial Tree Fund Donation

The Stockade Association has established a fund to honor long time Stockade resident and SA Board Member Peter Rumora who passed away recently. The fund is for memorial contributions for trees to be planted in the Stockade Historic District. As we all know, trees were a very important part of Peter’s life. Planting trees in the Stockade would be a lasting memorial to his life and memory. And, planting trees is a timely memorial, coinciding with the Stockade Streetscape Plan recently adopted by the city…which Peter supported as a Stockade Association board member.  Our board of directors supports this endeavor and I hope you will consider making a donation in Peter’s memory.

The funds would be used to purchase trees for the park and/or the neighborhood. The type and size of trees purchased will be consistent with the Stockade Streetscape Plan which is available on our website, If you would like to make a contribution, please make a check out to the Stockade Association and write “Peter Rumora Fund” in the memo. These can be mailed or dropped off at: The Stockade Association, Suite 100, 32 Washington Ave., Schenectady, NY 12305. Please email me if you have any questions at
