It is hard to believe that 30% of all Americans go hungry every day. What is the picture like in our own community? In May 2008, the Penndel Food Pantry served over 2000 individuals. With the bleak economic picture across the country, it is important for those who can to help. The economy is tough for everyone. With a small contribution you could feed a family their only meal of the day. During the holiday season there are many well publicized food drives but as we continue through the rest of the year it is easy to lose sight of the continued need for food.
Help the hungry in our community by dropping off your food donations at the Middletown Municipal Center, 3 Municipal Way in Langhorne Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. This is an ongoing program; donations will be accepted each work day, year round. Any type of non-perishable food item will be accepted at any time. So, next time you are at the grocery store, pick up a few extra cans of hearty, wholesome soup, canned vegetables or fruits and drop them off at the bins located in the Lobby of the Municipal Center. All donations will be delivered to local food pantries for distribution.
Bottled water; the mainstay of the soccer sidelines, walking trails and school lunch bags. Do you really know what it costs? For as much as $2.50 a liter, or $10 per gallon, bottled water costs more than gasoline. For one household serviced by Bucks County Water & Sewer Authority the cost of water is $.0059 per gallon. And it is not just the cost to the family budget…
The Container Recycling Institute estimates that 86% of the disposable plastic water bottles do not get recycled but end up in the landfills or littered along our roads and in community parks. The problem is growing for the environment and the landfills. In 1995, the amount of PET (the plastic used to make water bottles) in landfills was 1,175 million pounds. By 2005, this tripled to 3,900 million pounds; almost 2 million tons. And it is not just the cost to the landfills and the parks…
Fossil fuels are used to manufacture water bottles. According to the Earth Policy Institute in 2006, making bottles to meet America's demand for bottled water requires more than 17 million barrels of oil annually - enough to fuel 1 million US cars for a year! The Natural Resources Defense Council reports that the release of greenhouse gases in the manufacturing, transporting and disposing of plastic water bottles contributes to global warming and is filling the nation's landfills.
Each person and each family can help solve this problem. Simply cut down on your use of bottled water and always recycle the bottles when bottled water is your only option. This fall, the Parks & Recreation Department will be adding recycle containers to the parks. Please use them. In 2009, water fountains will be installed in locations where they can be protected from vandals. Park users are encouraged to bring refillable water bottles from home. For a little less convenience, you can save money, oil and the environment.
Recycle your old cell phone to benefit the Middletown Township Parks & Recreation Department. For each cell phone and battery dropped of for recycling at the Municipal Center, 3 Municipal Way, Langhorne, the Recreation Department will earn funds that will be used to help support township-wide recreation programs and events.
At the October 4, 2010 Public Meeting, the Middletown Township Board of Supervisors voted to adopt the Twin Oaks Park Master Site Development Plan which provides a roadmap to guide the community in the future renovation and revitalization of Twin Oaks Park. This plan is based upon recommendations contained within the Middletown Millenium Park & Recreation Plan, a public participation process and research into the historic and physical conditions of the land and waterways. A copy of the plan is available for review or download by clicking the link below.
The 2005 Middletown Millennium Park & Recreation Plan, a Comprehensive Recreation, Parks and Open Space Update is now available for download. The project was funded by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnership Program, administered by the Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The plan sets forth a vision for how the Township can conserve and make the best use of its parks, recreation facilities and open space.
