Bordentown Old City Hall Painted Chair Auction – Bordentown NJ Photographer

I enjoy documenting special events in my area for The Register News. Here in Bordentown, we have a City Hall that is fondly called, Old City Hall. It is a large brick building with a clock town and is located on Crosswicks St.
It is being refurbished and at this event, many chairs that were found in the building were originally in Clara Barton’s school. So different artists came forward to create something special and the money that came from auctioning the chairs off went directly to bring back Old City Hall to it’s “ole’ self” again.Some of these images were published in The Register News, one of the many papers published by http://www.centraljersey.com.

Bordentown NJ’s Annual Halloween Parade-NJ Photographer-The Register News

One of the great things about living in a small town is having our Annual Halloween Parade. It’s a lot of fun, the kids come dressed up in costumes, anyone can be in the parade, and it’s always a lot of fun.
As most know, we just had some snow and really cold weather, so we were hoping that the parade would not get canceled and the weather tuned out just beautiful!
Graham Parker was in the parade, pirates, high school bands, steppers, kids in costumes, and of course I was most happy to see more men in kilts this year ;)Some of these images were published in The Register News, one of the many papers published by http://www.centraljersey.com.

PFC Ben Moore Comes Back Home To Bordentown, NJ

I live in a small close tight community in a small town. The kind that still remembers who lived in which house after they house was sold three times since.
I was there to photograph the escorted motorcade back home. I was there to capture images for Hope Hose Humane #1, the fire house he belonged to and also to welcome him home and bid farewell. The more I read about him from his family and friends, the more I wished that I had known him.
Here is The Trenton Time’s story by Erin Duffy:
