Middletown Minutes

Middletown Honors 9/11 Victims with Silent Wreath Laying and Candlelit Tribute 

On Tuesday, September 11th, Middletown Township held a silent wreath laying and candlelit tribute through the WTC Memorial Gardens located at the Middletown Arts Center to honor the 37 residents we lost in the World Trade Center attack 17 years ago.

Close to 500 members of the community, including 9/11 victims’ family members, neighbors, Township Committee members, elected officials, local dignitaries, representatives from Middletown’s Police and Fire Departments, Office of Emergency Management and Emergency Medical Services, as well as contingents from American Legion Posts 338 and 515 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2179, bowed their heads in a moment of silence at sunset. Mayor Kevin M Settembrino and the Middletown Township Committee then led the wreath laying ceremony and candlelit walk through the Memorial Gardens. The silence was broken by 37 bell tolls rung by Doug Corbet, who served as Middletown Township’s Fire Chief in 2001, along with current Fire Chief Ryan Clarke. The bell, which was donated by the Port Monmouth Fire Company, was rung in memory of each Middletown resident who perished on September 11, 2001. Read more.

On September 9th, the Ecumenical Missionaries honored the 1-2-3 Mangia Food Pantry, located at St. Augustine's Church (302 Church Street in Belford). Father Luigi and Archbishop DiSunno, along with Mayor Settembrino and Committeeman Perry, came together to celebrate the one year anniversary of the organization and those who volunteer at the pantry. 

The food pantry serves our community by supplying fresh produce, meat, chicken, cereal, and much more to those in need on a weekly basis. They also provide stuffed backpacks, stuffed pocketbooks, a turkey dinner, Christmas presents and Easter baskets. They deliver groceries to low income seniors, veterans and people with no transportation. 

We thank them for their continued work in taking care of those in need in our community.
