16th Annual Kwanzaa Celebration

On Saturday, December 17, the Plainfield City Council, the Division of Parks and Recreation, and the Plainfield Board of Education hosted the 16th Annual Kwanzaa Celebration at Emerson Community School. At least ninety or so residents, parents, and young people were in attendance, as were a host of vendors. I took some pictures.

I’m sure young students may have fallen in the past Rita ____________________________________
