Flu Trumps Art and Mr. McRae Honored

The Middletown Teen Theater production of "The Crucible", scheduled for this Thursday and Friday at Woodrow Wilson Junior High School, has been postponed until further notice due to the H1N1 virus that has struck the school system and, especially, the cast. No "makeup" dates have been announced.

Last night (Tuesday October 27), Willard McRae was honored with the Liberty Bank Community Diversity Award for his many years of championing the cause of diversity in the Greater Middletown area. It's a well-deserved honor for a person who has never been afraid of rolling up his sleeves and getting involved, doing the work that needed (and still needs) to be done to make this city a better place to live - for everybody.

Besides winning the award, he was furthered honored by the Bank, which has chosen to change the name of the distinction to the Willard M. McRae Community Diversity Award. A classy move by a classy organization and a wonderful tribute to a good man.
