The South Plainfield Knights of Columbus held their annual Keystone Residents Christmas party on December 19th. The Keystone Community which has been located in South Plainfield for many years recently placed there residents across Middlesex County in group home settings. Ray Fantusi and the whole Keystone staff do a great job supporting Mentally Handicapped people to give them a better way of life.
In what was the biggest turn out in all of the years this event has taken place over 120 Keystone Residents & workers packed the Knights hall and enjoyed a great Christmas dinner and desserts. The residents also received a special visit from Santa who delivered many gifts to the residents.
