In advance of Memorial Day the weather forecasters were saying that Monday was going to be the best day of the long weekend. Well, they were wrong. At least in Hoosick Falls they were wrong. It rained. It rained when the wreaths were placed at the monuments in Wood Park. It rained when the wreath was put in the Hoosic River in remembrance of those lost at sea. It rained off and on throughout the beautiful parade with a half dozen bands and fire companies, girl scouts, boy scouts, politicians, American Legion Post #40 members and so many more.
