A full-on Spring weekend in Plainfield--

SATURDAY
'Home Sweet Homes' House Tour, 10 AM - 4PM
Seven unique Plainfield homes will be open to the public this Saturday in a benefit house tour for COTA (The Children's Organ Transplant Association).

For over thirty years, this national organization has provided financial assistance to transplant families. Your support helps families help save their children.

Tour begins at 940 Glenwood (at Charlotte Road). Tickets may be purchased at Swain Galleries in advance for $25/person. Day of event tickets available at 940 Glenwood for $35/person.

Plainfield Rescue Squad Open House, 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
This open house and tour will help you know more about the Rescue Squad and the services it provides to Plainfield residents.

Meet the EMTs, tour the building and ambulances! Membership applications will be available for the EMT Cadet Corps, Auxiliary and Explorer program.

A simulated motor vehicle accident will show you how the EMTs work, and provide tips about what to do if you are in a vehicle accident.

Plus the City of Plainfield Recreation and Health Divisions will provide health screenings (blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol), as well as fun and games and prizes.

Food will be available from local vendors.

The open house is free and open to all.The Plainfield Rescue Squad is located at 700 West 7th Street (at Spooner Avenue). Parking available on the street -- please be mindful of neighbors' driveways.

SUNDAY
Annual FOSH Garage Sale
FOSH holds its annual Garage Sale event from 9 AM- 4 PM.

My suggestion is to drive up Watchung Avenue and look for one of the participating homes -- you'll see ballons out front. Each location will have copies of the map of this year's participating homes.

There is always plenty of variety (and some surprise items). Proceeds of the sale benefit the FOSH scholarship program for graduating Plainfield High School seniors.

For more information, contact Shannon Pacheco at (917) 204-2112.
