The Plainfield Volunteer Firefighters Association (PVFA) will host it's annual Chicken Barbecue, Sunday, Sept. 3rd, 2017, behind the Shaw Memorial

Library on Main Street. Dinner will be 
served starting at 1pm. As always, the meal will include a 1⁄2 barbecued chicken, locally grown baked potato, corn on the cob, homemade cole slaw, dinner roll, slice of watermelon and a beverage; all for $12/adult and $6/children under 12. All Plainfield firefighters and EMTs have tickets to sell. As the total number of meals served is limited, tickets should be purchased before the event.

This year's event will include live entertainment, funded by the Massachusetts and Plainfield Cultural Councils. The annual Firefighter's silent auction will feature multiple locally donated items to choose from, tickets on sale at the gate. The 42nd Annual Plainfield Road Race will run at 1pm. Open to all, the 1.1 mile course around the center of town is a deceptively hilly course. Free registration at serving tent.

Many Plainfield groups will again take advantage of the Firefighter's Barbecue and have events going on simultaneously during the afternoon. This includes the Shaw Memorial Library Annual Book Sale, ArtsFeast, LBS Tag Sale at the Shaw-Hudson House, and Sanderson Academy PTO bake sale all offering items for sale and display.

Fire/EMS department. The department will have it's new vehicle accident stabilization equipment and Rescue Trailer on display during the Barbecue. Join your neighbors and friends and support your town's volunteer first responders.
