*In addition to providing transportation and tickets for Plainfield Senior Citizens (also known as older active adults) to attend the Black History Month Concert at Shiloh Baptist Church, the Rec Division once again sponsored a trip to the annual gospel event, "The Evening of Gospel Choirs" at Rutgers University. The program, presented by the American Studies Department, "...is the longest continuous running and best-attended Black History Month Program at Rutgers University." The seniors also attended a dramatic performance of "Fences," the stage play by the late August Wilson in Union, New Jersey.
