2008 Memorial Day Parade

Katonah Troop 1 participated in the villages annual Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 26. Staging began at the Katonah Fire House where our boys lined up in proper parade formation, carrying the American flag and the Troop flag. This year, Patrol Leader Kyle Winthers led the troop through the parade route, past enthusiastic supporters. The parade left the firehouse, headed down Katonah Avenue, past Depot Plaza, and then up Park Way to the circle where we paused for memorial ceremonies and remarks. We then continued down Bedford Road and concluded at the firehouse, where the boys were treated to ice cream from the KFD. This year we marched with the Webelos who just joined our Troop, swelling our ranks to more than 20 boys, which made for an impressive showing at this year's parade.
