The Public Celebrations Committee Announces the 2015 Labor Day Sponsors and Vendors


SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - On Monday, September 7th, 2015, South Plainfield will host one of the most, well attended and traditional Labor Day parades in the State. This year’s theme will be “Celebrating Our Heritage.” The Public Celebrations Committee anticipates many spectators will not only enjoy the parade and festivities, but also will enjoy the magnificent fireworks’ display at Spring Lake Park.

According to the Public Celebrations Committee, South Plainfield has always had an excellent relationship with the business community and not-for profit organizations.  The planning and execution of the events that take place on Labor Day would not be possible without substantial assistance and support.   Every year, generous donations are received from local businesses which help to defray the cost of the parade, festivities and fireworks’ display.  Labor Day sponsorship and vendor participation give local business owners and not-for-profit organizations an opportunity to network with customers, other businesses, not-for-profit organizations as well as the residents of the surrounding communities.

The Labor Day sponsors are critical in order to have a successful event.  The Borough of South Plainfield and the Public Celebrations Committee is proud to announce the following businesses and not-for-profit organizations as Labor Day Event Sponsors:

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)


How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.
