2022 Old Home Day
Old Home Days are back! Come share in Plainfield's parade by participating or watching. partake of the Fire Department Chicken BBQ, or join in fun activities for children of all ages!!! Sorry to let you know that there won't be an Old Home Day Revue this year.
To get a Chicken BBQ ticket, contact any member of the Plainfield Fire Department, or Paula Ackel (802) 881-2490 or Fire Chief Greg Light (802) 839-8878. BBQ is served 12 to 1:30 PM at the Rec Field - just follow your nose! This is an opportun-ity to get a great meal, meet with your neighbors, and help support the Plainfield Fire Department. As we all know, the Fire Department has not been able to host this event for the last couple of years which has been a true disappointment! Looking for a great turn out to celebrate the return of our Chicken BBQ!
To participate in the parade. come to the Park and Ride at the top of Main Street by around 10:15 AM to get instructions about where to fit in with the rest of those who make up the parade. Our Plainfield Parade grows from the creativity of people in our community and we never know what or who will be in it from parade to parade. Maybe this year you'll be part of the parade!!! Make a float - you still have time! - or ride your horse, or dress up your family members as pollinators and monarch butterflies. These are just some ideas. What we love is YOUR creativity and contribution! A special treat for those who watch the parade each year.
At the Rec Field please notice the wonderful art work on the big concrete blocks between the parking area and the field. These are the work of youth artists who have been participating in a sum-mer program coordinated by Plainfield's Recreation Committee and the Cutler Memorial Library. Thank you to all involved!
Thanks to Rick Pope for this very cool drone video of Old Home Days 2018 "Stand" activity at the Recreation Field. Drawn on the rec field from south (top) to north (bottom), Plainfield's map allows residents to "stand in the place where they live!").
