MILLTOWN, NJ - Team Milltown has two January fundraisers on tap to beat the winter doldrums and help fund this year's ride in the 2018 Police Unity Tour. The Police Unity Tour was started by Officer Patrick P. Montoure of the Florham Park Police Department. Montoure’s goal was to bring attention to the police officers who had lost their lives in the line of duty and to recognize as well as honor their sacrifices.

In order to participate in the marathon bicycle ride, the officers making up Team Milltown must raise $1800 per person. The officers and dispatchers accomplish their goal by organizing fundraisers throughout the year for a ride that is near and dear to their hearts. All of the money raised by the officers participating in the Police Unity Tour goes to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund.

To help earn this year's entrance contribution, Team Milltown has two fundraisers upcoming. The first is Spirit Night at the Urban Air Adventure Park in Milltown on Thursday, January 11 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Twenty percent of the $24.99 all-access fee will be donated to Team Milltown's quest. Participants must wear socks.

The second is Celebrity Bartender Night at the American Legion Post 25 on Saturday, January 13 from 6 p.m until 10 p.m. Tickets are $30 and include a buffet dinner, dessert and open bar. All tickets will be sold at the door.

The American Legion Post 25 is located on 4 JFK Drive in Milltown.

The Urban Air Adventure Park is located on 396 Ryders Lane in Milltown.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
