Plainfielders celebrated Earth Day with a cleanup at Leland Avenue Park on Sunday afternoon, organized by Netherwood Heights Neighbors and Friends of Sleepy Hollow (FOSH).

Led by Jeff Robbins of Netherwood Neighbors, about twenty volunteers, including adults and kids, spent a sunny (but chilly) Sunday afternoon busily filling trash bags, removing fallen branches and litter, cleaning up the walkway around the pond and generally giving the playground a tidying up. Among the items removed were a patio umbrella,  a car battery and an office chair!

Elected officials who turned out to help were Councilor Rebecca Williams and Freeholder Linda Carter.

Netherwood Neighbors president Jennifer Popper and FOSH president Pat Turner Kavanaugh extended warm 'thank yous' to all those who volunteered.
