House Tour, Garage Sale May 31

Some of Plainfield's most impressive homes and gardens will be open to the public on May 31, with the added bonus of a highly popular multi-family garage sale the same day.

"Maidens in May" is the house tour organized by the United Way Community Council of Plainfield for the benefit of the Plainfield Medical Transportation Fund. This year's beneficiaries will be the Tri-County Red Cross and the Plainfield Rescue Squad. Six homes of historical and architectural significance will be featured. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 on the day of the tour. Hours are 2 to 5 p.m. with a reception from 3 to 6 p.m. at The Pillars. For more information, click here.

Volunteer docents and helpers may still be needed for the event. Call (908) 353.7171, ext. 138 to volunteer.

The Friends of Sleepy Hollow garage sale draws hundreds of people to the city in search of bargains. More than 120 households will take part this year. The garage sale is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participating homes will be marked with balloons and maps will be available.
