NEW YORK MILLS, NY - Saturday is Armed Forces Day. A day we pay special tribute to the men and women who sacrificed so much to serve our country.
Over 100 people gathered at Harley Davidson of Utica to rally for the troops. They rode their motorcycles and stood by the road with signs that read "honk for our troops".
Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, along with other dignitaries were there to show their support as well.
There was also plenty of food and music for everyone to enjoy.
But while we pause to remember these veterans, there are still plenty who need to be remembered and Scott Zoeckler of the Veterans Outreach Center says we can do so by donating some much-needed items to the center.
"We're looking for food items for our food pantry. Some household items are helpful. We're looking for textiles, new or used. Anything that we can use to assist the veterans getting into housing or to help them meet their needs basically."
