A small troup of singing reindeer were seen on East Front Street Monday (Dec. 12, 2005) night.
The occasion was the annual YWCA Hanging of the Greens in conjunction with the grand re-opening of the restored Theatre on the second floor of the Y.
The YWCA of Central Jersey has been providing services to women, children and families for 98 years. The restoration of the historic theatre means Plainfield will regain a performance space that the city has been without for many years.
Monday's open house was a way to show off the room and a way to kickoff a drive for financial support to help purchase needed equipment, props, costumes, a curtain for the stage, chairs and more.

I have been reporting on Plainfield for more than 30 years, first at the Plainfield Today weekly, then at the Courier News and after retirement on the Plainfield Plaintalker blog and its successor, Plaintalker II.
