It is that time of year again. Time to enjoy a fish meal each Friday during Lent. Once again Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church and the local Knights of Columbus will be holding their Friday Fish Fries every Friday through April 7. The Fish Fries will be held at the Parish Activity Center (the PAC), 670 West Main Street (behind the firehouse) from 5:30-8 pm.
Meals are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $6 for children 12 and under. Besides either two pieces of fried or baked fish (please request the baked fish if you would like it), the adult meal also includes soda or coffee, and two sides–cole slaw, fries, or macaroni and cheese. The child meal includes one piece of fish, two sides, and a beverage. Additionally, you can purchase homemade desserts for a donation that benefits the St. Martin de Porres Society.
Carry out service of the meals is also available.
The St. Joe’s Fish Fry was voted “The Best Fish Fry 2017” by the Catholic Times Fish Fry Guy! Scroll down to pages 17/23 to read the review, which also mentions Lovejoy’s Market! You can also read the review at the bottom of this posting.
So please come out this Friday, March 3, and support the Knights of Columbus. Join them each Friday (March 10, 17, 24, 31 and April 7) throughout Lent (excluding Good Friday on April 14) for a delicious meal and lots of enjoyable socializing with neighbors, friends, and family.

We’ll be raffling off gift certificates for:

Christmas Under the Clock actually gets under way at 5 pm with the Tree Lighting Ceremony downtown in Bicentennial Park (the Flatiron between Chillicothe and Main Streets). There will be local carolers, Starlight Twirlers (baton twirlers), and much more entertainment 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 and entertainers, head over to the Plain City Auction, 145 East Main Street, for a Christmas Raffle and Craft Fair.
Bring your pre-decorated Gingerbread House to Daily Needs Assistance (DNA), 340 West Main Street (the old elementary school building) by 3 pm on Saturday to enter in a competition to win a $150 gift card to Carlisle Gifts. To find out more, read this article in the Plain City Advocate HERE.
You can take a horse drawn wagon ride to Yoder’s True Value Hardware for photos with Santa. As you wait for a wagon ride in Lovejoy Plaza, enjoy ham and bean soup and roasted chestnuts from UPCO and the Plain City United Methodist Church.
Rock on Ice is back this year. See them create ice masterpieces in Lovejoy Plaza.
On your way to see Santa, stop by the Plain City Library, 305 West Main Street, for live music with Classical Sounds and the Friends of the Library’s Book Sale.

While you can walk Main Street downtown, it is a little more tricky to get out to us on Route 42. Luckily, as mentioned previously, there will be van 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.
