Middletown Life

Middletown Life Spring 2017 Edition

Apr 12, 2017 08:18AM ● By Stone Lieberman


As this spring 2017 issue of Middletown Life arrives in homes, many local residents will be following news about Chris Godwin very closely. Godwin, a record-breaking football player for Middletown High School who became a standout wide receiver at Penn State, is now on the cusp of a professional football career. In this issue, we also shine a spotlight on a number of different people who have made a difference in the world around them. There's Jerry “Crabmeat” Thompson, Middletown's modern-day troubadour. And then there's Tammy and Amanda Nichols, the mother-daughter duo behind two Middletown bakeries. On the cover of this issue is Stefanie Roselle, a former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader who is now the CEO of Social Butterfly, a Middletown-based company that creates and maintains an online social presence for more than 40 clients statewide. We talk to the director of Middletown High School's theater program and the photo essay captures the moments before the students took the stage in the school's latest production, “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” We also profile Joshua Meier, a recipient of the 2016 Individual Artist Fellowship in Photography from the Delaware Division of the Arts. And we look at how the Middletown Family YMCA is filling a need in the community—a fitness facility for children, adults, and seniors.
