It was cold this year but that is much better than hot and certainly better than the rain from a few years ago. The CCS Marching Band once again anchored the Memorial Day Parade in Chateaugay. They performed several patriotic pieces during the parade and also during the ceremony. This year's service featured many special readings and poems and a guest speaker who reminded everyone that the Memorial Day weekend should be about more than picnics, cookouts and parties. To that end the band was recognized several times during the ceremony. The veterans are always pleased to see so many students take the time to perform over the weekend. It means a great deal to them to continue to have the support for the memorial service. It was very touching to see CCS graduate Corey Spoor in uniform again. You can see him in the pictures. 
I also have to apologize a bit for so many pictures of the 21 gun salute. I always try to get the flash from one of the guns. I think it looks pretty neat. This year I got one. I also have some pictures of the shells being expended. I also have some great pictures of all the participants. Thanks to the Chateaugay Fire Department and the State Police for their support and to Mr. Michael Campbell for leading the morning's ceremony.
I know the community is very proud of the students who marched and for Mrs. Trombley's leadership. Thanks also to recent student teacher Mr. Vanier who came back after his graduation to work with the band. You will also see some recent CCS graduates in the band, It was a wonderful and poignant morning.
