Plain City Lions Club Presents Checks to Plain City Food Pantry and the Plain City Public Library.

The Plain City Lions Club recently presented checks to the Plain City Food Pantry and the Plain City Public Library to assist them with the important work they do within our community.

Lion Treasurer Harley Bodenbender presented a $3,000 check to Jane Berry, Food Bank Director, on behalf of the Plain City Food Pantry. Also present in the photo, from left to right, are Ron Gall, Mike Preston, Tammy Kuhn, Ed Keefer, John Dellinger, Sandy Koester, L. T. Preston, and Ray Meister, President of the Fellowship of Praise.

Lions Club President, Shannon Foust, presented a check for $1,000 to Library Director, Chris Long.

The Plain City Lions Club does a lot of good within the Village and we are very thankful to have them working for our community!

The Plain City Lions Club is always seeking new members. Please contact President Shannon Foust if you are interested and would like more information about what the Club does. The Club meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month at 7 pm in the basement of the Plain City Presbyterian Church. A home cooked meal is provided with each meeting thanks to the generosity of Judy Bodenbender and Judy Weeks. The Club also tries to have an interesting speaker or program on the schedule for each meeting.

If you’d like to be Joe’s guest at the next Lions Club meeting to find out what the Club is about, stop in the pharmacy and ask him if you can tag along. He’d be happy to take you.

Revival of Plain City Farmers Market Needs Committee Members.

I recently had an email from Chris Long at the Plain City Public Library seeking help for the Plain City Farmers Market.

Chris told me that there were efforts underway to revive the Plain City Farmers Market. Jody Carney, the FFA teacher at Fairbanks High School, is paving the way and Chris has been helping her as everyone else has dropped out.  Jody is also a Plain City resident who wants to get involved in the community and is preparing her students to get involved, as well.  Village Council blessed a Farmers Market program so now it’s a matter of organizing and finding others to help.

Chris mentioned that she knew we carried a few locally made items in the pharmacy and she thought Joe and I might know some individuals who would be interested in serving on a Farmers Market committee.

So how about it?

Chris said that if there was anyone who would be willing to serve on a committee (this would involve a few meetings and committing to about five Monday evenings during market season) or who would like to vend their produce, baked goods, or hand crafted items (for pets, perhaps?), to please contact her by email at clong@plaincitylib.org or by calling the Library at 614-873-4912, ext. 23.

“From the Harvest to the Table” Program Presented by The Friends of the Plain City Public Library, Saturday, September 11.

I had an email from Chris Long at the library and this program has been cancelled due to lack of reservations. Joe and I have to be out of town this day or we would have attended. I think this sounds like such an excellent event that I am so sorry more people did not email or call for a reservation. Perhaps if everyone inundated Chris with interest in this, the library might be persuaded to put this back on the schedule. Want to give it a try? Then email Chris at clong@plaincitylib.org or call her at 614-873-4912, ext. 23.

The Plain City Public Library will be hosting a program, “From the Harvest to the Table,” on Saturday, September 11 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm to celebrate locally grown foods. A Plain City area culinary arts student, Nathan Endres, will prepare a sampling of appetizers and desserts, all made with fresh, locally grown ingredients. Some of the ingredients will even come from the library’s own garden! Those that do not come from the library garden will be recognized in a booklet the library is preparing that will list local growers and ingredients.

If the weather cooperates, the event will take place in the library’s garden with the sounds of woodwinds and string instruments vibrating in the evening air thanks to the musical talents of Classical Sounds. As you listen to relaxing classical music and nibble on Plain City fruits and vegetables, combined in creative culinary concoctions, you can also stroll through the Library Garden Project.

The Library Garden Project was funded by a grant from the State Library of Ohio. While you are being entertained, you can also learn about the vegetables, native plants, and the smart irrigation system that helps the plants in the garden flourish. Additionally, you can meet Hope, the horse topiary, and her other animal topiary friends (among my favorites are the pigs and the rooster).

A donation of $10 per person for this evening is appreciated to allow the Plain City Public Library to raise funds for other exciting programs (we have the best library around!).

Reservations are required as space is limited. You can contact Chris Long at 614-873-4912, ext. 23 or via email at clong@plaincitylib.org for more info or to reserve you spot at this tempting event.
