One of the nicer events of Independence Day Week is the yearly Naturalization Ceremony that takes place this Thursday July 2 at 1 p.m. in the Council Chambers of Middletown's City Hall. The people who become US citizens come from all over the world and it's fascinating to watch them as they become Americans. Even in this crazy economic climate, men and women of all ages still come to this country t live, work, raise families and become part of this amazing tapestry.
"The Honorable Stefan R. Underhill, United States Federal Judge, will conduct a Naturalization Ceremony for new citizens from all over the world. Russell Library coordinates this event with other local organizations and agencies every July, and it is inspiring to attend."
