News of the Beeches closing is sad news. It holds fond memories for many. Perhaps Rome, New York could act on one of those memories. Remember the gift from its sister city, Rome Italy, the statue of Romulus and Remus.
Rome, New York could give it a place of honor on city property. It is a wonderful bronze given as a token of friendship and love from one Roman family to another.
