Katonah Memorial Day Parade 2009

Memorial Day is a solemn occasion when we pay tribute to the men and women of the armed forces who gave their lives and made sacrifices to protect our nation and its freedoms. Our Troop is honored to participate in the parade marking the occasion in Katonah. Thanks to Mr. Bacon, here's some photos of Troop 1 Katonah marching in the Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 25. Participants also included the local Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Katonah Fire Department, as well as Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Girl Scouts. As an added bonus, all of our Scouts were wearing the new Katonah Troop 1 "90th Anniversary" neckerchief (this special neckerchief will be awarded to all adult leaders and all Scouts who have achieved the rank of First Class or above. New Scouts entering the Troop will earn their neckerchief upon achieving the rank of First Class). Neckerchiefs will also be available for purchase by collectors as a fundraiser to support the Troop.
