Centreville Memorial Day Parade To Feature Clough Memorial

“A special added feature should attract more spectators to the seventh annual Memorial Day Parade to be held in Centreville on May 30. Members of the Sudlersville Volunteer Fire Company will lead the parade in full dress uniform in honor of Fire Chief “”Buck”” Clough, killed earlier in April while responding to a house fire alarm. Ed Smith, general parade chairman and a past commander of Jeff Davis Post 18, American Legion, said the invitation had been extended to the Sudlersville firefighters following the funeral for Chief Clough on April 19. The annual parade is to honor those who fought and died in the service of their country. It also is a special tribute to those veterans of WWII of Queen Anne’s County National Guard, Company K, a unit of the 115th Infantry, 29th division, who entered federal service on December 9, 1941, two days after Pearl Harbor, and who led the invasion of Europe on D-Day, June 6, 1944, on the beaches of Normandy, France.
