Memorial Day 2017

Three Parades were scheduled: Charlestown on Sunday, May 28, 2017; Westerly-Pawcatuck in the morning of Monday, May 29; Mystic, CT in the afternoon of Monday May 29, 2017.  The Westerly Band only was able to march in one parade--the Charlestown Town Parade.  Pouring rain completely cancelled the Westerly-Pawcatuck parade and a ceremony was held at the VFW in Pawcatuck.  The Mystic Parade was held rain or shine, but the Westerly Band only played for the ceremony at the Mystic VFW. Very WET year!
