National Handwashing Awareness Week is December 6-12.


One of the easiest things you can do to prevent the spread of germs is washing your hands. At this time of the year as everyone is getting flu shots to prevent the flu, hand washing, along with an annual flu shot, can greatly increase your chances of remaining well.

Dr. Will Sawyer, an infection prevention expert, mans a web site for “Champion Handwashers.” The web site, Henry the Hand, offers important principals of hand awareness to help prevent germs from being passed.


First off, wash your hands when they are dirty, after using the bathroom, and before eating.

Don’t cough or sneeze into your hands. We all know to use our elbows to catch those germs when we sneeze and cough.

Don’t put dirty fingers into your eyes, mouth, or nose.

For more information on National Handwashing Awareness Week, vista the Henry the Hand web site HERE.

There will be local carolers, the Plain City Community Band, Starlight Twirlers (baton twirlers), and the Jonathan Alder Mixed Chorus at the Tree Lighting. DJ Tim Firlik will also help out with music and sound. The tree will be lit up by the Tree Lighting Pixies, winners of the Christmas Coloring Contest.

They will be followed by In Harmony Music Studio from 6:30 to 7 pm.

From 7 to 8 pm, the Sharon Mennonite Church Group will warm your spirits.

Once you’ve been dazzled by the tree lighting ceremony and entertainers, head over to the DNA Building, 340 West Main Street (the old Elementary building) for a Christmas Auction beginning at 7 pm. Proceeds from the auction will benefit UPCO (to continue funding the celebration each year). Auction items will be on display beginning at 5:30 pm. Items have been donated by local businesses.

While you wait for the Auction to get started, you can shop at the Crafter’s Only Show in the DNA Building from 5:30-8 pm. Get all of your holiday gift giving done in one stop and pick up some great home-made items.


You can then take a horse drawn wagon ride to Yoder’s True Value Hardware for photos with Santa.

Let the skilled Christmas Under the Clock volunteer drivers get you safely where you need to go.
