FOSH has made special efforts to maintain the historic
Netherwood Station's appearance as a gateway to the Queen City.
Plainfield's week of National Night Out activities continues this evening with the Ward 2 Challenge events.
Under the leadership of the Friends of Sleepy Hollow (FOSH) and the Crescent Area Neighbors group, Second Ward residents are invited to plant flowers at the historic Netherwood Train Station, help paint the fieldhouse bathrooms at Seidler Field or work with youngsters on a poster-making activity.
Participants who register are also invited to an after-party at the YMCA, Watchung Avenue at East 6th Street, where there will be refreshments and opportunities to use the YMCA's new fitness facilities.
This year's NNO steering committee has encouraged each ward to engage in a challenge effort to increase community participation, develop networking contacts and encourage the development of new block associations and neighborhood watches.
Judges will be monitoring the activities (anonymously), and awards will be made at the citywide National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 7.
