WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (August 15, 2011) - Monmouth University will host a solo exhibit of photographer Eric Sambol, August 15 through September 30, in Pollak Gallery. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 7 pm. Call 732-263-5759 for weekend hours. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Urban Coast Institute.
“The mere experience of photographing wildlife transports me to another world…it is an added bonus when I capture the essence and magnificence of another being I get to share the planet with…” states Eric Sambol.
Sambol uses the medium of photography to reawaken his childhood passion for nature. The exhibition showcases the remarkable wildlife he has had the pleasure to interact with and creatures both large and small are captured on film to show their beauty and character. The animals become works of art in the close-up portraits and candid shots.
All proceeds from the sales of the exhibition will be donated to the scholarship fund of Monmouth University and Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. Sambol resides in Brick, NJ and is a trustee of Conserve Wildlife Foundation.

MIDDLETOWN, NJ – In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of September 11th, Middletown Township is planning a trio of tributes to honor those who lost their lives in the World Trade Center tragedy.
“Thanks to the support from the community, Middletown will honor the 37 residents we lost during the tragedy with a memorial service, a flag display and a juried art exhibit,” said Mayor Anthony P. Fiore.
The Township will hold the memorial service on Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the Middletown World Trade Center Memorial Gardens. Among those who have agreed to participate are local religious and government leaders, veterans’ organizations, emergency responders, girl scouts and boy scouts. The service will include a candle lighting ceremony, said Mayor Anthony P. Fiore, who heads the September 11th Memorial Planning Committee.
General parking will be available the main train station lot and the Satellite Lot at Sears, located at the corner of Kings Highway and Route 35. A shuttle bus will transport attendees between Sears and the gardens. The service will be held rain or shine.
Prior to the memorial service a flag display will be installed to honor the 37 residents who died on September 11, 2001. Flag banners will be posted on telephone poles along Kings Highway, Church Street and Middletown-Lincroft Road.
“The flag display is sponsored by local businesses, organizations and individuals who answered the township’s call to help fund this fitting tribute,” said Mayor Fiore. “The flags will continue to be used after the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy as a reminder that Middletown remains vigilant in its support of the War on Terror.”
