In the summer of 2020 two local girl scouts (Nandita & Sanskruti) hosted virtual STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) classes through the recreation department in order to earn their Silver Award. The Silver Award can be earned by middle-school age students by volunteering 75 hours doing a sustainable service project for their community. The link below will take you to the website they created which explains their project and the impact they hope it will have in our community. At the end of the program they created a Jeopardy game for the students to play as a review of what they learned during the program, the attached picture is of the game board they created.

Thank you so much to Genmab US, Inc. located right here in Plainsboro for continuously supporting our food pantry. Last year they provided our pantry with a generous food donation and this year they collected gift cards totaling over $1,000. These gift cards will go towards our holiday wishes program and provide support for families in need this holiday season.

A Message from the Mayor and Township Committee

As we get closer to the holiday season, we want to continue to assure you that throughout the public health emergency, Plainsboro continues to protect our residents, businesses and their patrons by implementing policies and regulations based on the guidelines and rules from the CDC, State of New Jersey and County of Middlesex.

Unfortunately, since mid-October, the State of New Jersey and Middlesex County have seen steady increases in COVID cases. It is imperative that we each do what we can to minimize the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing, wearing face coverings and washing our hands regularly and by modifying plans for upcoming holiday gatherings. Click here for information from the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html

At this time The NJ Department of Health is still recommending limiting non-essential inter-state travel as well as any upcoming holiday travel.

Please know that the Township of Plainsboro will continue to monitor this emerging, rapidly evolving situation, and provide updated information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance.

Be safe, protect yourself, and others and make sure you social distance, wear face coverings and wash hands regularly.

Halloween Safety Tips for 2020 🎃

👻Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.

🎃Put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

👻Carry a flashlight, glow sticks or have some type of reflective tape on so that you can be easily seen.

🎃Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible.

👻Don’t dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

🎃Drive Safely! Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.

👻Inspect all candy before you eat any!

😷Use cloth face coverings over your nose and mouth in addition to your Halloween mask!

🎃Stay within your household group and wait until other trick-or-treaters have left the door before you approach. Don't forget to social distance.

👻Remember that not everyone will be participating this year so, if the porch light is off or the house is dark let’s respect the homeowners privacy.

Have a Safe and Happy Halloween Everyone! 👻🎃

Thank you to all of those who participated in our monster hunt! We hope you enjoyed exploring Plainsboro in the hunt to find our monsters. It was so much fun seeing all of your smiling faces. Join me in congratulating our four winners:

The Chowdhury Family
The Vorp Family
The Mitchell Family
The Shaffer/Yu Liu Family

Just because the competition is over doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! We are going to leave our monsters hanging up until Halloween! We encourage you to visit them, in costume if you like, and send us your selfies for us to post on Facebook. Now more than ever we could use some Halloween cheer!

The monsters are located at Millstone River Park, Morris Davison Park, The Plainsboro Preserve, Wicoff House Grounds, and Bethal Cemetery
