Hometown To Honor Clarence Clemons

The Chesapeake Conference Center in Hampton Roads, Virginia will host a memorial service to honor E Street Band saxophone player Clarence Clemons on Friday (8/19)Clemons, who died June 18, about a week after suffering a serious stroke (story), was born in Norfolk and raised in nearby Chesapeake.  His brother, Bill, said the the service, which will be reverent but also include a display of memorabilia, is being held because the family wants '...the community to understand, although we held a memorial service in Florida (story), we wanted one in our home city where our family grew up and where we still have so many friends.'  Donations are being collected to help in establishing a Clarence Clemons Family Youth Center at the Grace Community Church, which occupies the spot the Clemons home once stood on.
