Get your picture taken with Pres. Obama at New Dems Potluck Saturday


Congressman Frank Pallone and President Barack Obama
at the 2012 New Dems MLK  Potluck Dinner.

As President Barack Obama prepares to take the oath of office for his second term on Monday, January 21 -- the 'official' Martin Luther King Day, Plainfield residents will once again have an opportunity to celebrate the life and contributions of Dr. King, congratulate the President on his re-election and raise much-needed supplies for one of Plainfield's most active food pantries.

The 5th Annual Community MLK Potluck Dinner will be offered by the New Democrats club and hosted by Councilor Adrian Mapp and his wife Amelia at their gracious West 8th Street home.

Members of the community are invited to bring a dish to pass and contributions of non-perishable food items to be distributed to the food pantry of Shiloh Baptist Church. (Contributions may be left on the Mapps' front porch at any time up to the party, or brought to the party itself.)

This is always a treat for the whole community as the Mapps' gracious home is filled to overflowing with old friends and new. The dining table literally groans from the potluck offerings of attendees.

And one of the treats of the evening will be to have your photograph taken with President Obama (well, OK, a full-size cutout photo of him that will be doing stand-in duty).

Plan to come out Saturday evening and join Plainfield neighbors and friends in an evening of conviviality and service.
