Rockford’s earliest veterans were remembered on Memorial Day Monday, May 31 at Pioneer Cemetery, at North Rockford Middle School, visible from Ten Mile Road. Flags were placed on graves by members of the Rockford Historical Society. This year will be a great time to visit the cemetery, which is now being generously maintained by the City of Rockford.
