Crowds turned out for the Centerport Fire Department annual Memorial Day parade and service. 

Besides firefighters and shiny fire apparatus, the parade featured marching bands from the Harborfields Schools, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, as well as Girl Scouts and Brownies from local troops. 

After the parade, the ex-Chiefs led a flag-raising ceremony at the Park Circle Monument opposite the firehouse. 

This year's guest speaker was Brigadier General R. Dennis Kerr, U.S. Army (Ret.), who grew up in Huntington Bay.

Refreshments were served by the Centerport Cadets and the Ladies Auxiliary held their Bake Sale.
