Twelfth Night Dinner tickets going fast

Traditional Twelfth Night festivities included the last appearance of the Yule Log.
Van Wyck Brooks Historic District president John Stewart, Jr., tells Plainfield Today that tickets for the District''s annual Twelfth Night** Progressive Dinner are going fast. You know what that means -- act now if you don't want to miss this ever-popular winter event.

Four homes of District members will be open as diners move from one to the other for various courses of the meal and culminate with after-dinner cordials.

Those opening their homes this year are April Stefel (appetizers), Barbara and Gordon Fuller (entrée), Barbara and Abraham Drake (desserts) and Vicki Blasucci (cordials).

Tickets are $30/person for VWB members and $40/non-members. Memberships (at $10 per person) may be renewed along with ticket purchase. To reserve your tickets, contact VWB member Larry Quirk by email at For more about the Van Wyck Brooks Historic District, visit their website here.

**Twelfth Night traditionally concluded the Christmas festivities, among which was the burning of the Yule Log, and was celebrated on the eve of the Epiphany, the twelfth night after Christmas.
