A Job Well Done

This morning, workers tidied up the walkway from Lot 7 to Park Avenue, making life safer and more pleasant for the many pedestrians who cross here to and from East Seventh Street.

Kudos to John Louise and his hard-working staff! Demands are many on their time and labor.

If you are among the many theater fans planning to go see Act IV's production of "Steel Magnolias" at First Unitarian Society of Plainfield, you too will be grateful for the cleanup. Performances will be on Fridays, Nov. 6 and 13 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Nov. 7 and 14 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, Nov. 6 and 15 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15.

The Parish Hall Theater is at 724 Park Avenue. Call (908) 756-0750 for more information.

The next challenge is to get the lamps fixed to add more security for visitors and those passing through the lot at night. And also for permit holders who park in the lot. Clocks must "fall back" on Nov. 1 and it will be really dark out there without the lamps.

That's great, Bernice--I'll check it out on my way home. Maybe they even took out that huge poison ivy bush on the Park side...

John Louise could get a lot more done IF people did not throw so much junk on the streets and playgrounds. The staff must spend 50% of their time just cleaning up what people should not be throwing in the playgrounds !!!!

PS it would reduce the taxes !!

What is so pathetic about this town is that one little improvement that should not have to have been pointed out on a blog merits a major kudo. Why isn't this kind of maintenance programed in on a regular basis? You see it all over town on public rights of way as has been pointed out in previous blog posts.Other towns can do it why can't we?
