PLAINFIELD — Over 190 visitors from all over New Jersey and neighboring states participated in the United Way’s Plainfield Community Council third annual “Maidens in May” house tour. The event showcased the historic and architectural significance of six houses in Plainfield. A reception followed the tour at Grace Episcopal Church located on Cleveland Avenue.
As a result of the closing of Plainfield’s Muhlenberg Regional Center, medical transportation is a growing issue in Plainfield. United Way raised over $4,700 from the tour and a large portion of the proceeds will go towards the Plainfield Medical Transportation Fund. A check will be presented to the Transportation Fund recipients, the Plainfield Rescue Squad and Neighborhood Health Services in early July.
Event sponsors this year included: Investors Savings Bank, The Burney Group, The Pillars Bed and Breakfast, Lola Reed of Caldwell Bankers, Rapp’s Pharmacy and Anderson Publishing.
