  • Everett Theatre
    Not many theaters have been featured in Oscar-winning films. The Everett Theatre is an exception. The space took center stage during a pivotal scene in 1989's Dead Poets Society, and its vintage facade, plush red curtains, and ornate arches helped it fit right in with the film's '50s setting. But despite its brush with Oscar gold, it's the Everett's function as a community center that has made it a source of local pride since it first opened in 1863. While weathering fires, remodels, and closures, the venue made entertainment its mission, from vaudeville shows and movies to musicals and plays. More than a century later, the renovated Everett Theatre continues to produce entertainment for Middletown and its surrounding area.

  • Colonial Neighborhood Council
    Culinary craftsmen at Fingers, Wings and Other Things grease ravenous fingers with hand-battered chicken tenderloins and zesty buffalo wings gracefully dunked into more than 12 homemade dipping sauces. The vibrant menu entices eyeteeth with handheld munchies such as fried pickles, mac 'n' cheese wedges, or buffalo shrimp glazed in mild, spicy, or extra-spicy sauce hot enough to garner a centerfold spread in Condiment Monthly. Guests can count their chickens before they're devoured with a basket of 10 fingers or 20 wings bedecked in a choice of savory sauces, including three types of barbecue, horseradish mayo, and honey mustard. A selection of seafood and chicken entrees heads up the main event with tasty picks such as the beer-battered fish 'n' chips platter or the grilled shrimp and chicken skewers, which unite meaty morsels more conveniently than a mailbox full of pork chops.

  • ConKerr Cancer
    When Cindy Kerr's 12-year-old son, Ryan, was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, she began making pillowcases for him to brighten his hospital room and his spirits. He was so cheered by the gift that she started creating pillowcases for other children staying in the oncology unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Since its early days, Cindy Kerr's pillowcase project has grown into ConKerr Cancer, with a network of thousands of volunteers who make the pillowcases spread across North America and South Africa. ConKerr Cancer has created and delivered more than 600,000 pillowcases to children across the United States, Canada, South Africa and Great Britain in the past five years.

  • LuLu Shriners
    Earning a rating of 46.4/50 skulls on HauntWorld, LuLu’s House of Horrors’ live cast of sinister denizens sends chills down voyagers’ spines as they move through woods, a haunted house, and a creepy cornfield. Hoary rays of moonlight peak through the tree line as guests begin their paranormal journey by boarding a wagon that takes them creakily through the forest, halted periodically by shadowy wayfarers and undertakers who need their hearse’s battery jumped. The wagon drops the group off at a cemetery, where they tiptoe over restless graves before arriving at the doorstep to a haunted house with hair-raising ghouls at every turn. Once they have passed through the depraved domicile, guests step aboard the wagon again, which winds through another forest and lets patrons off at the entry to a haunted corn maze, their leafy escape route to salvation.
