Join Us For Our Christmas Under the Clock Open House on Saturday, December 6 from 5:30-9pm.

Christmas Under the Clock

Please join us this Saturday, December 6, for our Open House and Customer Appreciation evening from 5:30-9 pm during Christmas Under the Clock. We will have lots of food (twenty dozen homemade cookies baked by Cherie’s church youth group–YUM) and the small glass bottles of soda that everyone loves.

Christmas Under the Clock is again being sponsored this year by UPCO (Uptown Plain City Organization) and the Village of Plain City.

Participating open house locations will be giving away lots of prizes, gifts, and refreshments. The more open houses you visit, the more chances you have to win. Pick up a map at the first open house you visit to locate all of the other places holding open houses.

This year, funds raised from Christmas Under the Clock will go toward renovation of the clock tower, the namesake for this yearly event. The tower housing the clock is in need of approximately $60,000 in repairs. Around $17,000 has already been raised from Village funds ($15,000) and a Community Projects Grant ($2,000). The remaining $43,000 will need to be raised by the community.

Please also bring some non-perishable food items or toiletries for the Plain City Food Pantry, 156 West Main Street.

Here at the drugstore, we will also be giving away an iPad to one winner, 12 years and older. So stop in and sign up to win an iPad!

While our open house kicks off at 5:30 pm, Christmas Under the Clock actually gets under way at 5 pm with the Tree Lighting Ceremony downtown in Bicentennial Park (the Flatiron). There will be local carolers, choirs, baton twirlers, and the Jonathan Alder Band at the Tree Lighting. The tree will be lit up by the Tree Lighting Pixies, winners of the Christmas Coloring Contest.

Once you’ve been dazzled by the tree lighting ceremony, head over to the Plain City Auction to bid on Christmas decorations and gift baskets. The bidding only lasts about an hour, so don’t delay. Proceeds from the auction will benefit UPCO (to continue funding the celebration each year) .

You can then take a horse drawn wagon ride to Yoder’s True Value Hardware for photos with Santa. On your way, stop by the Plain City Library for live music with Classical Sounds and the Friends of the Library’s Book and Novelty Sale. The sale will include holiday novelties, as well as an enormous book sale in the library’s large meeting room. The Book and Novelty Sale gets underway during Christmas Under the Clock and continues through December 13 during regular library hours.

The Friends of the Library is also holding a Cookie Contest to raise funds for library programs and services. Submit your best homemade cookies (one dozen) on a non-returnable plate that will be auctioned off  during the Holiday Open House. In addition, entries must include six (6) cookies to be tasted by the judges (total of 18 cookies). Cookie entries must be dropped off by 10 am on December 6 at the Library, 305 West Main Street. The Cookie Contest winner will be announced at 7:30 pm and the winner will receive 50 percent of the silent auction funds.

Stop by ASE Feed and Supply, 211 South Jefferson Avenue, where you’ll get 10% off all dog food and bird seed. What a deal! We’ll be heading over to get bird seed to feed our hungry back yard birds! ASE will be open 5:30 to 8 pm.

After you come out to visit us, make sure to drop by Rooms that Bloom Florist next to Lovejoy’s IGA and find some great holiday candies and gifts.

Rock on Ice will be doing ice sculpting in Bicentennial Park following the Tree Lighting. If you get a bit too chilly, hang out by a fire barrel to warm up.

While you can walk Main Street downtown, it is a little more tricky to get out to us on Route 42. Luckily, there will be shuttles available to take people from Yoder’s Hardware to Lovejoy’s IGA and up and down Jefferson Avenue (Route 42). Let the skilled Christmas Under the Clock volunteer drivers get you safely where you need to go.

We also want to send out a huge thank you to Julie Weaver for all that she does for Christmas Under the Clock and UPCO all year long. Julie took over on a lot of the Village activities a few years ago when Joe and I became a bit burnt out. So thank you, Julie, for keeping this wonderful tradition going! We appreciate all that you do so much!
