SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - On Sunday March 11th South Plainfield current and former residents came out in force to support the Eggert Family and stand up against cancer.  The Volleyball fundraiser was a great success and would not have happened without all of the great support from the community.  Once again South Plainfield showed that we are a tight knit community who looks out for each other, especially when times are tough.  Although the volleyball on the court was not always pretty, the heart shown by all was quite impressive.  Congrats to Cookies and Cream who won the adult division over the South Plainfield PBA and the Hash Slinging Slashers who won the High School division over the Student Leadership team.
