Memorial Day celebration to be held at Ridge Ferry Park on May 25

Those who wish to stay after the program can visit the displays, enjoy barbecue and Brunswick stew made available by the American Legion Post 52, chicken sandwiches from Chick-fil-A, and a variety of other items from the Greater Rome Area Young... This program is organized by the Americanism Committee of the Exchange Club of Rome with assistance from local veterans and their respective organizations. The Exchange Club is a true community service club. The club is trying to meet the need to restore the true purpose of Memorial Day in honoring and remembering those who sacrificed their lives on the battlefields for our country and the freedoms we enjoy. The Memorial Day program will begin at 10 a. m. and conclude by the noon hour. Their choir director, Marvin Williams, will sing the Star-Spangled Banner.
