SHELTON — The Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, will have a brochure commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Shelton Farmers Market on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, starting at 10 a.m.

The public is invited to come and learn about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was established 100 years ago in 1921 as the final resting place of an unknown soldier from World War I; later remains were added from subsequent wars to represent all missing and unknown service members who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

Members of the SRH-MS Chapter will be giving out free coffee, provided by Christopher Chuckta, manager at Dunkin Donuts, 733 Bridgeport Ave.

The SRH-MS Chapter also wishes to honor those Revolutionary War patriots at the Huntington Burial Ground by placing a bronze maker. For anyone making a $10 donation or more, hand-painted patriotic rocks will be available.
