Clarksville's Centennial Celebration

Here's a few pics from the well attended event last Saturday. It was beautiful weather that day, in the middle 70's and a clear bright sky. The crowd was quite large with smiles all around. The entire square was filled for the Dedication of The Veterans Monument. It was nice to see some life in the old town once more.

Folks watching the parade. More pics of the weekend can be seen at the excellent site Clarksville Pa.

This was, to me, the most memorable sight of the day. This gentleman made a sign to honor his friend or relative that was killed in Viet-Nam. The sign reads : " In Memory Of Private B. A. McClellan , Born March 18, 1944, Killed In Action March 27, 1966, Vietnamese Highlands ". The name of Brent A McClellan is on the monument.

The Clarksville Book is nearly sold out, but more have been ordered. If you want to get a copy, send an email with your request to rossmarodi@bentcom.net
