FT. LAUDERDALE, FL - When members of the Plainfields' Chapter of UNICO traveled to Florida last week for the group’s 91st annual convention, little did they know they would be receiving three national awards for the work they do.   

Because it led the way in chapter growth with 32 new members, the Plainfields’ Chapter received the Chapter Membership Growth Award (first place).  In addition, the chapter received honorable mention for best scrapbook.  The award marked the sixth time the group received a major award for its scrapbook.

South Plainfield resident Bob Bengivenga was also honored, being named Distinguished District Governor.  The award recognizes the best District Governor in the nation.
