ASE Feed and Supply will be throwing a customer appreciation breakfast celebration on Saturday, April 26. Ken Jewell and his wife, Teresa, purchased the feed store and mill in 2001 and renamed it ASE in honor of their three daughters–Amy, Stacy, and Emily. They have been serving the Plain City community for thirteen years!
If you stop by on April 26, you can get a pancake breakfast from 8 am to 1 pm. There will also be a 10 percent discount on anything purchased in the main store and a ten percent discount on all bird seed, all dog food, gates and tanks, and organic chicken starter and layer. There will also be a twenty percent discount on trophy and redmond rocks. Additionally, you can register in a drawing to win 1 year of FREE Blue Buffalo dog food.
Adoptable dogs from the Union County Humane Society will also be visiting from 9 am to 11 am.
The customer appreciation event ends at 2 pm when the store closes.
I have to thank Ken and everyone at ASE for supporting Black and Orange Cat Foundation for the past seven years (or more). Carol Gaul helped Ken get the feral cats that were living around the mill and shop fixed and vaccinated. These cats kept the mice under control around the mill, but also tended to cross the street to the Gaul’s shop and often met unhappy fates on the road. After being fixed, they didn’t wander so much and Carol stopped worrying about them. Ken was also very glad to have the cats around.
Ken kindly donates food to Black and Orange every month, which we then distribute to people in need. Additionally, Ken donated a dog house to us a few years ago for Peggy Meadows, who runs a small dog rescue (Happy Tails of Central Ohio), here in Plain City. We cannot thank Ken and ASE enough for all their generosity.
ASE Feed and Supply is located at 211 S. Jefferson Avenue (Route 42) in Plain City (they are across the street from McDonald’s). For more information, including hours of operation, products and services, visit their web site HERE.

On Saturday, April 26, gather up all of your family and friends and come on down to the St. Joseph’s Catholic Church Parish Activity Center (the PAC) for a racing spectacular. Located at 670 West Main Street (behind the fire station), the PAC will be the site of a fun evening of horse racing that will benefit UPCO, the Uptown Plain City Organization.
Become a horse owner, name your steed, and listen for the race announcer to call it out. Enjoy the free buffet while betting against your neighbor’s horse. There are a limited number of horses available, so we suggest buying early: $20 per horse!
Costs are: $25 each person or $40 per couple. And if you decide to participate in the races, you can spend $20 per horse you decide to “own.”
There will also be a free buffet and cash bar, an auction race which you can enter to win half the cash, a 50/50 raffle, and lots more fun!
As this is the kickoff day to Kentucky Derby week, there will also be virgin mint juleps and a Best Derby Hat contest. So get those fancy hats out or decorate one to wear.
Online registration is available at uptownplaincity.givezooks.com/events/a-night-at-the-races. Want to print out and mail in your registration? That form is available at uptownplaincityorg.webs.com.
Proceeds go toward Uptown Plain City Organization’s efforts in supporting local businesses and improving the Historic District. Have a question? Please call Shannon at 614-578-9726.

The very first Earth Day was celebrated forty-four years ago in 1970. Since that time, our Earth has grown ever more damaged and fragile.
When I was little, one of my favorite pastimes was taking a walk, looking at the flowers and bugs and listening to the birds hailing each other above me. Everything was beautiful and exciting to me at that age. Even now, however, when I go out to fill the bird feeders on mornings awash in the pinks and silvers of daybreak, I am filled with awe and amazement at the beauty surrounding me in my own back yard. The trees feel like old friends, sparrows and blue jays hanging from the branches. I cannot imagine these simple treasures disappearing.
We must protect our backyards, our villages, our countries, our Earth. We have never been so connected–the internet causing miles to disappear at the touch of a keyboard. We are all united in these connections. As Marshall McLuhan said in 1964, “There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.”
Find out more about Earth Day and events you can participate in by going HERE. Below are a few that are taking place in Columbus and surrounding counties.
Several of the area Metro Parks will also be honoring Earth Day with programs throughout the Central Ohio area. To find a program you would enjoy, go HERE.
We always know spring is here when the Plain City Lions Club auction arrives. This year, those funny loving Lions are hoping you’ll join them the last Thursday of the month and raise money for their many, many service projects and local charities. This auction, which is filled with jokes and teasing along with tons of super buys, always leaves people with full bellies, giant smiles, and empty wallets (people bid often to help support a good cause!).
You can bid on several great items at the auction including: Four tires (up to a $450 value) donated by E&R Tires Plus, four Michelin tires donated by Schrock Automotive, one week’s use of a Florida condo donated by Buckeye Boxes and John and Sue Ann Pieroni, Echo gas string trimmer which retails for $240 donated by Hilliard Lawn and Garden, a Lake Erie perch dinner for the lucky buyer and ten other family members and friends (courtesy of Captains and Cooks Richard Murray and Roger Weeks), Spanish lessons with Lion Veronica Taylor, and an Adirondack Chair donated by Yutzy’s Farm Market. Jim Butler is also donating a 3 yard dump truck load of 27-year-old bull manure (the manure is 27-years old–not the bull–aged like fine wine) compost for delivery and dump within a 10-mile radius of Plain City ($300 value).
The Lions Club Annual Dinner and Auction will be held on Thursday, April 24, in the Banquet room at Der Dutchman Restaurant in Plain City at 6:30 pm.
Tickets are $16, which includes a family style dinner and entry to the auction. The meal will be served at 6:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased at True Value Hardware (see Lion Perry Yoder), Schrock Automotive (see Lion Bill Davis), and here at the pharmacy (see Joe). The auctioneers this year are Geoff Smith, Frank Roby, and Jay Kurtz.
Stop in the pharmacy as soon as possible and buy your tickets! You will have a roaring good time!
