CHESTERFIELD, NJ -
Many townspeople and township officials gathered outside at the Chesterfield Township Municipal Building this morning for the annual Memorial Day Ceremony.
Pastor DeSilva of the Chesterfield Baptist Church hosted the ceremony, and recognized members of the military as well as their families. DeSilva also read a letter written on July 14th, 1861 by a solider to his wife and young sons. It was a very moving letter that you can hear at 11 minutes in the video above.
Displayed today were two memorial wreaths, both donated by area people. The ribbon wreath was made by a local resident, who is also a member of Chesterfield Baptist Church. The other wreath was donated by The Chesterfield Floral Company.
