The Fence Of Hope

April 12, 2020

Happy Easter Everyone

Photos and story by: Dennis Symons, Jr.

ALLENTOWN, NJ (MONMOUTH)–If you happen to drive by the Allentown Presbyterian Church and notice thousands of bright colored ribbons it is the “Fence Of Hope” a community art instillation for Easter.

The Fence of Hope at Allentown Presbyterian Church as seen on Easter Sunday April 12, 2020

This is a much different Easter than we are used to and church services were held online this year due to the COVID-19 situation. An idea was to have a community art instillation for Easter. The art project and community event also had to be “social distancing compliant” with the Governor’s social distancing guidelines.

Members of the church and community collected bright colored table cloths cut them into ribbons at home and brought them to the fence to be tied. Fifty Five panels were covered in ribbons for the “Fence Of Hope” art instillation. The project was spread out and the community brought the ribbons at different times of the day so there was plenty of space to maintain social distancing rules.

More about the Fence Of Hope can be found on the Allentown Presbyterian Church website.

To Social Media Investigators and Haters: You Got The Wrong Guy

April 12, 2020

Performance Supply, LLC of Manalapan, NJ has no relation to “Performance Screen Supply” also of Manalapan, NJ

By: Dennis Symons, Jr.

MANALAPAN, NJ (MONMOUTH)–On April 10, 2020 brought you a story about a company who was allegedly price gouging New York City for N95 masks made by the 3M Company. Since that time Internet sleuths, haters, arm chair quarterbacks and social media trouble makers took out their hate on a business in the same town with a similar sounding name.

For all the haters you are accusing the wrong business, if you Google Performance Supply Manalapan you get a similar sounding company (note this is the good guy) Performance Screen Supply
600 Park Ave
Suite 100
Manalapan, NJ 07726

As accurately reported by here is the company involved in the lawsuit from the April 10, 2020 story:

3M Files Lawsuit Alleging N95 Price Gouging in New York City Against Performance Supply, A Manalapan, New Jersey Company

From 3M’s 26 page lawsuit:

“On information and belief, Defendant Performance Supply, LLC is a New Jersey
limited liability company, with a principal place of business at Westbrook Way, Manalapan,
New Jersey 07726.” —-Note removed the house number from the location.

People are assuming that if you just “Google” a name and it comes out similar it has to be the same business or person. They are wrong and need to do their fact checking from a number of sources not just “Google”

After I posted the story to Facebook and defended the accuracy of the story of the name of the business on the “Monmouth County News” Facebook Group I received this message from Bob the owner of Performance Screen Supply of Manalapan:

As a news person you want to have your facts before posting and I was accused of being inaccurate by posters on the “Monmouth County News” Facebook group.

One poster has since removed the posts where I defended the name of the business because it sounded different with different addresses. After a lengthy debate where that person was getting information and I wanted to know the references I was told to just “Google it” I told the person in one post that if you can’t back your sources you are peddling “fake news” and asked again for more facts. I was then told that the poster did not have time so “Google” is committed to factual, accurate reporting and does not pedal Fake News.
