If my calculations are correct, Plainfield will mark its 30th annual observation of National Nigh Out next Tuesday (August 2) with a community-wide event at City Hall.
As in past years, Mayor Mapp and other city officials will motorcade through the city to make stops at neighborhood observances, ending in front of City Hall at 6:30 PM for the citywide celebration.
Begun in 1986 by former First Ward Councilor Liz Urquhart, the annual observance provides an opportunity for residents and public safety personnel (police, fire and EMS) to meet and mingle.
Having a good time at a National Night Out celebration.
National Night Out gets under way at 6:30 PM, Tuesday, August 2, at Plainfield City Hall.
