Triple header today: LWV event, Superintendent screening, Library wine tasting

As Plainfielders head into official 'summer' at the end of the month, the calendar is crowded with must-do events.

Today includes three such --

League of Women Voters voter project

Plainfield's chapter of the LWV offers two workshops today on registering to vote, and what to expect if you are a new voter. The workshops are identical, 10 - 11:30 AM and Noon - 1:30 PM. Lunch will be served from 11:20 to Noon. At Plainfield High School, 950 Park Avenue. Special guest: Joanne Rajoppi, Union County Clerk.
School Superintendent candidates forum

The Board of Ed will present the two finalists for the vacant Superintendent's position. Each will make a presentation and take questions from the public. Though the Board has refused to make the names public, word in the street is that the Interim Super, Anna Belin Pyles, is one of the two finalists. At Emerson Community School, East 3rd Street and Emerson Avenue. 1 - 3 PM.
Wine Tasting at the Library

The Friends of the Plainfield Public Library present their 10th annual wine tasting event from 4 - 7 PM this afternoon at the Library. Special wines, special music, special eats! See separate story "Live jazz highlights Library's wine tasting event".
And be sure to reserve tomorrow for the FOSH/VWB Garage Sale!

I attended the Superintendent forum yesterday and I'm very pleased with Dr. Carolyn Gibson. I hope the BOARD members make the right choice and hiring Dr. Gibson over Anna Belin-Pyles. I believe Dr. Gibson have what it takes to move the school district forward and helping the staff and students to meet the AYP.
