Two Plainfield treats Saturday: Library exhibit, DQ sale

Gospel singer Donnie McKlurkin is among the Gospel performers featured
in a photo exhibit opening today.

Plainfielders have two treats in store today --
RHYTHM & PRAISE: Black Gospel Artists Photo Exhibit
Thirty years of Gospel groups and performers are profiled in an exhibit opening today at the Plainfield Public Library.

Professional photographer Brian Branch-Price, an area resident, has been photographing Gospel musicians in performance and backstage for three decades. This show brings 90 of his most striking photos to the attention of Gospel music aficionados and Plainfield residents.

Among the singers pictured are Cissy Houston, Shirley Caeser, The Dixie Humming Birds, the Clark Sisters, Donnie McKlurkin (shown above) and many more.

The exhibit opens today with a reception from 1:00 to 3:00 PM in the Anne Louise Davis Gallery of the Plainfield Public Library at 8th Street and Park Avenue. The exhibit is free and open for viewing during regular library hours through March 28. The Plainfield Public Library is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots.
Once you've seen the Gospel music exhibit at the Library, you'll need a treat -- so why not toddle over to the Plainfield Dairy Queen, where the Albanese-DeMair family will be welcoming all for a Customer Appreciation Day.

Everything in the store will be half off -- from cakes to sandwiches to cones to Blizzards. Besides the treats, you never know who you'll run into at the DQ!

Plainfield Dairy Queen is at 1367 South Avenue, with plenty of parking on site.

I wish the FEDS would investigate what's going on over at the Pmua. I wounded if the rest of the towns and the committee members know that Assemblymen green is putting their towns on the line to save Malcolm Dunn .

This is a disgrace
