 These are the faces of Middletown. Male, female, young, old, of different faiths, different occupations, different opinions. But they are all Middletowners.


Borough residents gathered for what Facebook organizers hoped would be the first of many casual get-togethers that would bond the community.

The Press And Journal hosted the first Meet & Greet on Wednesday, Feb. 25, and the crowd of at least 80 people included Mayor James H. Curry III, Council President Chris McNamara and councilors Mike Bowman and Anne Einhorn.
