This fundraiser will help us sustain and expand our scholarships and continue to educate our community,” said Curtis L. Beulah, Chairperson of the Sgt. Alfred B. Hilton Memorial Fund Committee. “In addition to providing education and scholarships, our committee is working diligently to locate and appropriately mark the final resting places of USCT in Harford County.
