Last week the Borough held its fourth annual National Night Out, and I must say it was the best. An event like this can only work by having plenty of volunteers and community support. Thankfully, we had both.
The South Plainfield Police Department received hundreds of donations from citizens and businesses to be used towards the National Night Out event. Volunteers put in countless hours of prep, manning various stands, tents and cleanup. For these donations and support I am truly grateful.
In just four years National Night Out has become one of the largest community events in South Plainfield. It is a night the community comes together to have fun, but learn about healthy living, the dangers of substance abuse and how those suffering may receive help.
I look forward to next year's event and thank everyone that generously supplied their time and support.
Police Chief, Borough of South Plainfield
