ROME, N.Y. - The Rome Rotary Club along with the Rome Historical Society held a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Rome.
This ceremony has been taking place since the monument was built back in 1976.
The tomb holds the remains of a soldier who fought in the American Revolution.
A flag raising ceremony was held to honor those who fought in the Revolutionary War.
"It's just so important on a day where we all have picnics and celebrate with our families that we remember why we are free to do that," Nancy Neiley, president of the Rome Rotery Club said.
The daughters and sons of the American Revolution from the Fort Stanwix chapter laid wreaths.
Arthur Simmons of the Historical Society was the event's guest speaker.
