MIDDLETOWN, NJ (April 22, 2020) –  Middletown is known for many great things! Among them some of the most beautiful green sprawling parks and farms in the state. The best part about Middletown is that there is great community spirit. Even during a time when we can not socialize as usual, Middletown Township is inviting the town to celebrate together.  Today is the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, and the Middletown community begins a celebration, and a Facebook challenge that will run through the entire Earth Week, April 22-April 29.

It will be designed to make you think how you can do your part in helping to create a greener, healthier community.  After participating in the challenge, post a picture in the comments showing your neighbors what you did (c'mon post that pic! It will be fun to see our neighbors).

For certain challenges, prizes will be randomly selected.  Don’t worry if you can’t do the challenge on the day it’s posted - come back to it another day!  All challenges must be completed by April 29.  Remember, the most important part of this is to have fun and help our community make everyday Earth Day!
