Plainfield Homecoming Never Disappoints


It was a beautiful morning in Plainfield for the annual homecoming parade. Thousands of Plainfield residents and alumni lined Lockport Street, to see the 110 parade participants, including Lauren Staley-Ferry, candidate for Will County Clerk in 2018. Lauren was joined by friends and family, including Joliet Firefighters, Burke Schuster, Jeremy Hoffman and Chad Carlson.

“I just love the Plainfield Homecoming parade! The whole town really turns out for this annual celebration of Will County’s oldest community,” Staley-Ferry said. “The strong support shown by the community for the Association of Plainfield Teachers was great to see. The APT IEA signs were everywhere in the crowd along the whole parade route.”



She continued, “What a great way to wrap up parade season! I have truly enjoyed meeting so many people along the way. Now we will continue to focus going door to door getting signatures and building momentum for next year. I am so grateful to the many people that have walked, worked, or helped me in any way so far. It really is special and inspiring to have so many people that believe in me!”
