Dryden Memorial Day parade

It may have rained a bit this afternoon, but the weather this morning was perfect for a parade. I've posted a huge set of photos of the parade and the ceremony afterward, trying to capture something of the spirit of the event.

After the parade made its way down West Main Street to an enthusiastic crowd, there was a ceremony at the Village Green including music, introductions, speeches by Mayor Reba Taylor and John Bailey, salutes, and the placing of a wreath at the memorial at the base of the Village Green flagpole.
