Lions Logo

We always know spring is here when the Plain City Lions Club auction finally arrives. This year, those fun-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 Michelin tires donated by Schrock Automotive, one week’s use of a Florida condo donated by Buckeye Boxes and John and Sue Ann Pieroni, Leaf blower 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, a three burner Gas Grill donated by the London Walmart SuperCenter, and an Adirondack Chair donated by Yutzy’s Farm Market.

The Lions Club Annual Dinner and Auction will be held on Thursday, April 23, 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. Doors open at 6 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!

Celebrate the 45th Earth Day on Saturday, April 25.


The very first Earth Day was celebrated forty-five years ago in 1970. Since that time, our oceans, lands, and animal inhabitants have grown ever more damaged and fragile.

Joe and I recently watched the documentary Mission Blue which tells the story of Dr. Sylvia Earle, legendary oceanographer, marine biologist, environmentalist, and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, and her fight to save the ocean, which she calls the “blue heart of the planet.”

I can think of no better film than Mission Blue to download from Netflix to honor Earth Day.

In 1970 when Earth Day began, there was only one dead zone (a spot with no living beings due to low oxygen concentrations) in the oceans. Today, there are over 500 of these areas, brought about through pollution and the destructive habits of humans.

Instead of dead zones, Dr. Earle would like to create “Hope Spots” in the oceans. These “Hope Spots” would be marine protected areas free from commercial fishing and other human activities, allowing the wildlife and environment to recover. You can watch Dr. Earle’s TED talk on her wish to protect our ocean and create “Hope Spots” HERE.

Watch the trailer for Mission Blue HERE. You will be amazed by the tiny, energetic Dr. Sylvia Earle who is almost 80-years-old.

You can also find out about all the news concerning our oceans by following the Mission Blue Facebook site HERE and Dr. Sylvia Earle’s Facebook site HERE.
