Inspire 5 Mile Run

and FUN WALK

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Core Creek Park, Tollgate Road & Park Road, Langhorne, PA

Rainy weather did not dampen the enthusiasm of the participants at the third annual MCF/Inspire 5 Mile Run, 2 Mile Walk on Sunday, October 29, 2017.

The beautiful surroundings of Core Creek Park provided awesome scenery to view while the runners completed a 5 mile course completely within the park. This was the first 5 mile race held completely within the borders of Core Creek Park. The runners all remarked that it was a challenging course, complete with hills, valleys, straight-aways, deer, and changing leaves.

The walkers encountered beautiful scenery in their path adjacent to Lake Luxembourg.

Thanks to the following organizations who helped make the race a success: Inspire Federal Credit Union, Middletown Township Parks and Recreation, Public Works and Police departments, Middletown Fire Police, Bucks County Parks and Recreation, Spectasport, Levittown Now, the Diane Loomis Keller Williams Team, Sandy’s Beef and Ale, Peppi’s Pizza, Mom’s Ice Cream, Planet Fitness, and Giant Markets.

A Middletown Township K-9 Training Graduation

Chief Joseph Bartorilla had the privilege of attending Officer Steve Andrews’ and K9 Jester’s graduation today at the New Jersey State Police Canine Training Academy.  This was for explosives scent detection school, which was the first of two training courses and lasted 17 weeks.  Steve and Jester will be on patrol in Middletown Township for the summer, then, sometime in October, they will both return to NJSP for the second training course, the 20 week patrol/tracking school.  Graduation for that will be in February of 2018.  That is when K9 Jester will be a fully certified and trained police K9. Below are some photos from the graduation.

Citizens Bank Scholarship Donation

The grand opening for Citizens Bank's newest branch in the Shoppes at Flowers Mill Giant was held on March 4. To show their appreciation for the scholarship program of the Middletown Community Foundation, Citizens Bank president, Dan Fitzpatrick (left), presented a check to Foundation president William M. Cowan, Jr.

The Foundation greatly appreciates this donation to help encourage community service participation by our community's youth. To date, the Foundation has awarded 162 scholarships totalling over $162,000 to Middletown high school seniors who participate in community service.

This year, we added a new scholarship, the Richard L. Tosti Scholarship, aimed at high school seniors who are furthering their education at a trade school.
