Christmas Under the Clock is always the first Saturday of December and this year the 9th annual celebration falls on December 4 from 5-9 pm. The tree lighting will take place at 5 pm at the center of town under the clock at the intersection of Main and Chillicothe Streets. There will carolers, the Jonathan Alder band, and an appearance by Santa at the tree lighting.
Additionally, gift baskets will be auctioned off at 5:30 pm at the Plain City Auction House and Santa will be available at that time at Yoder’s True Value Hardware Store. You can take a tractor or horse drawn wagon ride down to the hardware store to visit Santa.
Stop in the drugstore this week and see the gift baskets that we have made up for the auction.
Other businesses in town will feature open houses with food, special holiday shopping discounts, and prizes.
The prize drawing for the $500 VISA Gift Card will take place at 9 pm at The Plain City Historical Society, 111 West Main Street.
Plain City Druggist will be taking part in the Christmas Under the Clock festivities with an open house that will begin at 5:30 pm after the tree lighting. Stop by for food, bottled pop from our old fashioned Coke cooler, and discounts on everything in the store (except prescription medications).
Our theme for Christmas Under the Clock this year is “It’s a Wonderful Life,” based on the Jimmy Stewart movie. We truly believe that we lead wonderful lives!
Christmas Under the Clock is sponsored by the Uptown Plain City Organization (UPCO), the Plain City Business Association, and the Village of Plain City. You can find out more about Christmas Under the Clock by visiting the UPCO web site HERE.
To celebrate the Bicentennial of Big Darby Baptist Church (1810-2010) this year, Robin Terry decided to feature the church on her annual fundraising ornament for the Plain City Business Association. There are only 100 of these hand painted, signed, and numbered ornaments available. This ornament is the ninth in a series.
Last year’s 2009 ornament featured Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church. A limited number of these ornaments are still available, as well as ornaments from previous years that highlighted Plain City’s other historic buildings and sites, including Bicentennial Park (2003), Farmer’s Bank (2004), the Grandstand (2005), the Train Depot (2006), the Presbyterian Church (2007), and the Methodist Church (2008).
We also have burgundy ornaments from the Bicentennial in 2002 featuring the clock for $10. Please note, these ornaments are not part of Robin Terry’s series. They were made just for Plain City’s Bicentennial.
We currently have the 2010 Robin Terry ornaments here at the drugstore. They are $25 each and all proceeds benefit the Plain City Business Association. We also have limited numbers of ornaments from 2003 to 2009. Unfortunately, the ornament that featured the Clock Building in 2002, and was the first ornament in the series, is no longer available, as it sold out. Ornaments from previous years are $25 each. If you purchase three or more of the ornaments, there is a 20% discount.
Ornaments from 2003 through 2009 can also be purchased at the Plain City Historical Society, located next to Security Bank at 111 West Main Street in downtown Plain City. The Historical Society is open Tuesdays, 10 am to noon; Thursdays, noon to 3 pm; and Saturdays from 10 am to noon. You can stop in during those times to purchase ornaments.
We are putting together a package featuring all of the available ornaments from 2003 to 2010. We will have this ready for Christmas Under the Clock on December 4, so stop in to pick up any ornaments you may have missed and to get the 2010 ornament featuring Big Darby Baptist Church.

Joe and I have known Tony Wilson since he was about 11-years-old, so essentially, half his life. We acted as Big Brother and Big Sister to the little squirt, who is now all grown up and serving in the Air Force.
This birthday, Tony will spend out of the country defending the United States. From the time he was just a kid, Tony loved to dress in camouflage, and we knew a career in the military was in his future.
Have a wonderful birthday, Tony. We are very proud of you and send much love your way.
