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.
My friend Becca is a teacher at the Florence-Roebling Elementary School and told me about a large event that they do every year to honor our Veterans. I was asked to be a part of this to take some pictures and I as so happy that I was asked! …
At Bordentown’s MacFarland Intermediate School, they held a special Vet’s Memorial Service.
Part of the service was our local Girl Scout Troop worked together to receive the Bronze Award. This award is for doing a certain number of community hours. They decided to create a special memorial for Ben Moore, who was killed over in Afghanistan earlier this year. They planted a Red Oak in front of the school with a plaque to honor his memory.
Ben’s grandmother, Patricia Jenkins, and Ben’s parents, Amy and Patrick Moore.
Amy Moore comforts Emily Albrecht. “Her father, MSG James Albrecht, is active duty Army, currently stationed at Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands. She misses him a lot! I think meeting Ben Moore’s family made her appreciate what her father does for our country, and how lucky she is that he has survived Kosovo and 2 tours in Iraq.” -Corinne Agins Troop Leader, #25132
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 😉
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.
Bordentown, NJ was bustling as people came out to show their respects for fallen American war hero, Pfc. Benjamin G. Moore, member of the 693rd Engineer Company out of Fort Drum, NY, 23, who was laid to rest on Saturday the 22nd of January, 2011.
