Centreville Memorial Day Parade Features Veterans

Several veterans of Queen Anne’s old Company K, Maryland National Guard that drilled weekly in the Centreville Armory nearly 70 years ago are expected to be on hand for the 7th annual Memorial Day Parade in Centreville on May 30. The parade will step off from Queen Anne’s County High School at 12 noon and march down Kidwell Avenue to Commerce, north on Commerce past the reviewing stand in front of the court house, and then left on Broadway past the Goodwill firehouse. The men and women veterans and all parade participants will enjoy a free picnic at the Jeff Davis Post Home in Centreville following the parade. All county Legion posts, VFW posts, the Town Council of Centreville, Lions Clubs, Rotary, and other organizations are sponsoring the reception and picnic for marchers. World War II ended 64 years ago; the Korean War 56 years ago; and, the Vietnam War 39 years ago. Memorial Day is set aside to honor all veterans, but specifically those who fought and died in the service of their country.
