To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of World War I - as well as 100 years of women serving in the US military - the historical societies of Chester, Deep River and Essex sponsored a program that combined local history, spirited patriotic music and a unique way to honor our veterans.

For “A Patriotic Salute,” we created a digital slide show of images of local veterans from World War I and up through recent wars. The slide show was presented with live patriotic musical accompaniment by the Corinthian Jazz Band, performing patriotic music (see below). It was an incredibly stirring time for all 175 people who attended the program at the Deep River Town Hall Auditorium.
