Welcome to Midbergen Communities

Welcome to MidBergen Communities. Please bear with us about the slowness of updates; we are busy in the process of moving over to a new system, and will be moved in by the end of February. Please don't register until we have moved, as we will be restarting the forums, and adding in comments for the various stories. We wll be adding in new features; watch this space.

We are a community service, covering the towns and boroughs of mid-Bergen county (hence the name of the site). We are currently working with(in alphabetical order), Bergenfield, Dumont, Haworth, New Milford, River Edge, and Oradell. Feel free to explore around. The discussion forums are open (registration is required to prevent spamming). The purposes of this site are educational in nature: to make residents more aware of resources available in our area, notably events, organizations, locally owned businesses, and government services. We therefore concentrate on features; including articles written with the help of representatives of local businesses and organizations. (if you want your business featured, and have a good idea for an article, don't hesitate to contact us).

If you have an event coming up, please submit them to the community calendar (please write us at webmaster@midbergen.com, if you want to post an event). The site will remain completely free of charge for the time being; if pay services come in the future, anything that is currently here will remain free of charge. In addition, any funds received over and above  expenses will be used to help local not-for-profit organizations.

There are free classified ads in the discussion forums. We are building a directory of local businesses. If you want your business to be included (there is no charge for a basic listing if you are in one of the six boroughs), please send the name of your business, its website (if any) its address, phone number, hours, and what kind of business it is to webmaster@midbergen.com.).

This site is currently run by residents of the area, which we hope will differentiate us from nationally run sites only interested in advertising dollars (and it also means that we won't disappear if ad dollars aren't there). If you want to make any suggestions, comments, or, especially, complaints, you can reach us publicly in the support forum, or email us at webmaster@midbergen.com in any case.

Bart Lidofsky - Webmaster

Events: Baseball Returns to New Bridge Landing

News about local events

1860's style baseball came to New Bridge Landing on Saturday, July 5th, 2014, with the Flemington Neshanocks returning, this time playing a double header against the Brooklyn Eckfords. And this year, the weather was perfect, sunny, seasonably warm (as opposed to last year's heat wave), with a good crowd showing up at the Bergen County Historical Society's stomping grounds.

Events: New Milford Annual Fishing Derby, 2014

News about local events

On Saturday, June 14th, the day before Father's Day, fathers and children came down to Hardcastle Pond in New Milford to say "no" to drugs and "yes" to a morning of fishing fun. While the Drug & Alcohol Municipal Alliance Committee came through with a great event, as usual, this year the attendance was down to 48 children this year. This was largely due to the people who started the New Milford Run not being able to find another day in the entire year when they could hold their event, forcing families to have to choose to chose between two of the few family friendly events that New Milford has every year. However, those who chose to attend this event certainly made a good choice, as we shall see.

Events: The 2014 New Milford/Teaneck Elks Carnival

News about local events

After 50 years of raising money for charity and having fun doing it, the New Milford-Teaneck Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks' 2014 carnival almost didn't happen, when they lost their provider. But McDaniel Brothers Shows of Lodi came through. We can only hope the weather holds out, too (maybe the thunderstorms can be marketed as a fireworks display?).

Theater Reviews: Ruthless! The Musical

Reviews of local theatrical productions

We can start off with a simple statement: If you love theater, you are going to love this play. If that fits you, you can stop reading this review, right now. Just buy a ticket to the Bergen County Players production of Ruthless! The Musical at the Little Firehouse Theater in Oradell, New Jersey, and see it. Now, to break into the first person for a few seconds, I will admit that I love the theater (which, if you see this play, you will see is not a necessary quality in a reviewer), and I had a great time. But the purpose of this is not to say whether or not I enjoyed the play; it is to help you decide if you will enjoy the play. So let's go on to the details.
