MIDDLETOWN, NJ - In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of September 11th, Middletown Township is planning a flag display at the site of the Middletown WTC Memorial Gardens to honor the 37 friends and neighbors the community lost in the World Trade Center tragedy. The flags would be posted on telephone poles at the Gardens, located on Church Street next to the Arts Center, and would extend down Middletown-Lincroft Road, past the Middletown Train Station.
The flags will remain in place after the September 11th Remembrance Ceremony as a perpetual reminder that Middletown remains vigilant in its support of the War on Terror. The cost of each flag banner is $250.
Businesses and individuals who sponsor the cost of at least one flag will be recognized in the 9/11 program materials, on the township website – www.middletownnj.org – and on the township television station. The station is viewable on Comcast Channel 20 and Verizon FiOs Channel 26. Donations are tax-deductible. All donations are appreciated. Please make checks payable to: Middletown WTC Memorial Gardens, c/o Mayor’s Office, Middletown Township, 1 Kings Highway, Middletown, NJ 07748. Call Mayor Anthony Fiore's office at 732-615-2024 for more information.
