The P-rade kicked off at 2pm sharp. Our group (alarmingly near the beginning of the line) was led by
the famous St. Columcille Pipe Band, from Kearny, NJ.
Kit Huettig and sons Scott and Jimmy carried the 1960 banner, as usual, and Rich McGlynn
led the class in frequent locomotives, as usual. Our procession had already ended long before the rains came,
just as the Class of 2005 was taking its place in the line of march.
