Clifton FD Parade 2019

Posted on August 5th, 2019

It was another beautiful evening. warm and dry. We were fortunate to have a spot under a shade tree while we were waiting for the parade to begin.

We marched with our friends in the Chili FD.

Tyler was our only trumpet, and he had never marched alone as our only trumpet. However, he rose to the challenge and played his part well. Good job, Tyler!

At one point, Kim was enthusiastically cheering. She was channeling Art, who couldn't make it to this parade.

For woodwinds, we had Irene and Tracey on flute and Kim on clarinet. For brass, we had Tyler on trumpet, Maria playing trombone parts on alto sax, and Don H. on helicon (sousaphone). For percussion, we had Scott M. on snare drum and Andy on bass drum. Later, in the beer tent, Scott M. switched to trombone, and Don S. - who was marching with the Mark Time Marchers - covered the snare drum parts.

At this point, the fire department parades are done for 2019. We still have the Palmyra Canal Town Days Parade in September. See you there!
