Mapps host 6th annual Community BBQ Saturday

Plainfield Councilor and mayoral candidate Adrian Mapp and his wife Amelia continue a family tradition on Saturday by opening their home for the sixth annual community BBQ.

This event has become one looked forward by many in the community each year for the scrumptious food, good company and plenty of libations and music.

This year, Adrian and Amelia are asking guests to bring along some nonperishable food items (canned goods, pasta, etc.) as a donation. 'Hunger,' says Councilor Mapp, 'knows no slack season, and those with scarce resources need help as much in summer as in winter.'

Donated foods will be used, as with those given at the annual MLK birthday party, by the Food Pantry at Shiloh Baptist Church, one of the most active in the city.

The partying begins at 4:00 PM this Saturday at the Mapps' home, 535 West 8th Street and continues until the last one goes home.

See you there!

I'm sure Adrian is aware of the Haters out there that will be calling the police about the music like the last couple of years

Although this is a lovely idea, I can't help but wonder if it wouldn't make better sense to take all the money it will cost to host this party and donate it directly to the food pantries.
