Patchogue 4th of July Parade

Patchogue, NY

July 4, 2007

In polar opposition to last year's weather, we had gray and unusually cool skies for the annual march along Montauk Highway in Patchogue. That may have dampened plans for everyone else but for all those wearing wool suits from head to toe it was a Godsend. We fell in with the 119th NY and filled out a decent sized company plus the Old Bethpage Band kept us in good cadence for the whole route. Special thanks to Private Jamieson's (Dave Brink) wife, Janica Mitchell Brink, for taking this year's photos.
