Busy Saturday in Plainfield today, what with the YMCA's annual bike ride, the opening of the Library's Hispanic Heritage Month photo exhibit and Adrian and Amelia Mapp's community BBQ.

YMCA Bike Ride
The YMCA's 4th Annual 'Send A Kid To Camp' bike ride takes place today with registration at 10 AM and kickstands up at 11 AM for a two-hour escorted ride through scenic NJ.

A free bike show gets under way at 1 PM in the parking lot of City Hall, featuring bike-themed Tees and other clothing items, novelties, food and a DJ. There will be prizes for bikes in different categories -- Custom, Cruisers and Speed.

Proceeds help fund the YMCA's annual summer youth camp experience for Plainfield youngsters.
'Cosechanda Memorias' Exhibit Opens
The Plainfield Public Library celebrates an early kickoff to the annual Hispanic Heritage Month observance with an opening of a photography exhibit 'Cosechando Memorias' of works by Angelica Munoz Castano.

A Colombian-American fine art photographer, she returned to Colombia in 2003 and photographed the workers in Colombia's coffee-producing region, seeking to explore their cultural identity and preserve their cultural traditions.

The show is hung in the Room 2 Gallery on the Library's lower floor. Today's opening reception is from 10 AM - Noon. The show will hang through October.
Mapps' Community BBQ
Adrian and Amelia Mapp open their home this afternoon to their annual Community BBQ. See details at my prior post here.

All are welcome.
