The 2019 Netherwood Neighbors calendar
is available now.
Need a last-minute Plainfield-themed Christmas gift?
Netherwood Neighbors 2019 Calendar is now available and would make an excellent gift for the holidays that will last throughout the new year.
The theme for this year's 12-month spiral-bound wall calendar is "Imagine Netherwood (1880 - 1930)".
The calendar is printed on heavy glossy stock and there is room for important notes and reminders on the calendar pages. Dimensions are 8½" x 17" (opened).
It features a background on every page of a section of the neighborhood as represented on period property maps (you will be interested in some of the names of owners and property delineation lines of the 1880s).
In the upper portion of each page are photographs of various Netherwood Heights properties -- some no longer in existence, and some then-and-now comparisons.
The photos are supplemented with text supplying information about the properties, their architects, owners and business and Plainfield connections.
Whether you are a fan of Plainfield history and architecture or are just looking for a one-of-a-kind gift that will become a collectible -- look no further!
The calendars are $20/each and may be bought at The Coffee Box (1359 South Avenue) or Swain Galleries (Watchung Avenue at East 7th).
They can also be ordered online on the Netherwood Heights website here; note that postage is extra, and Christmas delivery cannot be guaranteed if ordered online. Questions? Call: (908) 668-0388.
Congratulations are in order to this year's calendar team: David Beverly, Marianne Kehoe, Harold Spingarn, Susan Tomljanovic, and Mary Wacholtz.
And to Netherwood Neighbors and its 2018 officers -- Louise Colodne (president), Phil Schafer (vice president), Jeff Spelman (treasurer) and Jack Freudenheim (secretary) -- for starting and maintaining this project.
Job well done!
