Thursday: Conflict Zone photography exhibit
On Thursday, Sept. 15, the wounded veterans, their caregivers, volunteers and other members of the community were invited to a reception at the Loft in Beaufort’s City Hall to view the national photography exhibit “Conflict Zone.” The images were all taken by some of the most celebrated combat journalists of this generation, and the show was inspired by Joao Silva, the New York Times photographer who lost both legs in an Afghanistan explosion.
The event was catered by Palm Key Catering, and volunteers also brought many other delicious homemade dishes.
It was a wonderful opportunity to mingle, enjoy a good meal and see thought-provoking — sometimes even heart wrenching — images from the war zones.
The show is sponsored by The Independence Fund and will be on display through Friday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.conflictzone.org.
Friday: Lt. Dan Band concert in the park
Saturday: 5K run and Beaufort 300th parade
