Saturday’s activities planned in celebration of Plainville’s 150th anniversary of incorporation, have been rescheduled due to weather. Sunday’s slate of events will still take place.

A bus and walking tour of historical landmarks had been scheduled for 10 a.m., to 4 p.m., on Saturday, July 20. It will now take place on a to-be-determined date in September 2019.

All are invited to visit the Plainville Historic Center, 29 Pierce St., and The Congregational Church of Plainville, 130 West Main St., on Saturday, July 20. Both locations will open at 10 a.m., for walk-throughs and tours.

The Plainville 150th Committee announced that the family-style picnic on Sunday, July 21, will be held from 12 to 4 p.m.

The Plainville Fire Department will be on site with a pumper truck hooked up to a sprinkler, to provide relief from the heat, and the Committee secured a twenty-two foot water slide for the children.
