Middletown Life

Middletown Life Fall/Winter 2015 edition

Sep 09, 2015 10:24AM ● By Steven Hoffman

Welcome to the fall issue of Middletown Life. One of the big events that will be taking place in town this season is Fashion on Main, which will be held at the Everett Theatre on Nov. 7. Numerous businesses and individuals in town will play a part in this event, with a group of fashion boutiques—First & Little, Jewelapalooza, Nicole J. Boutique, Femme Fatale, and Wardrobe by Carolyn & Nadria—providing the styles that will be showcased that day. 

Middletown is always evolving, and there are plenty of examples of that in the stories that are included in this issue. We look at how the Middletown Chamber of Commerce is developing plans to assist small businesses, including a business incubator program for entrepreneurs. We also have a feature about the Agape Storehouse Community Basket, which works to provide shelter and food for families in the area who need help. The food pantry serves up to 150 families a week. The Q & A in this issue is with Cecilia Rozumalski, the executive director of the M.O.T. Jean Birch Senior Center. Middletown Life talks to Rozumalski about how the senior center, now in its 48th year, keeps up with the growth of the Middletown, Odessa, and Townsend area. This issue also includes a story about the the newly formed MOT Film Society, which celebrates a love of movies. Michael Nazarewycz, the founder of the MOT Film Society, is working with local theaters to screen both classic movies and independent films that will resonate with audiences.

We hope that you enjoy the stories in this issue of Middletown Life and, as always, we welcome your comments and suggestions for future stories.
