Fish Fries at St. Joe’s Parish Activity Center (the PAC) Start February 24!

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 beginning this Friday, February 24, and continuing through March 30. The Fish Fries will at the Parish Activity Center (the PAC), 670 West Main Street (behind the firehouse) from 5:30-8 pm.

Meals are $7 for adults and $6 for children and seniors. Besides either fried or baked Alaskan Pollock (please request the baked fish if you would like it), the meal also includes soda or coffee, cole slaw, and fries or macaroni and cheese. Additionally, you can purchase homemade desserts for a $1 donation that benefits the St. Martin de Porres Society. Last year the St. Martin de Porres Society made almost $900 for charity from the desserts that were sold. This year they are hoping to make over $1000 by enticing your sweet tooth!

Carry out service of the meals is also available.

So please come out this Friday, February 24, and support the Knights of Columbus with their first Fish Fry of the Lenten season. Join them each Friday (March 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30) for a delicious meal and lots of enjoyable socializing with neighbors, friends, and family.

Welcome Baby Jesus by Local Author Sarah Reinhard.

Joe and I have known Sarah Reinhard for many years–long before she ever put her first words out into the blogosphere. Sarah, from reading her adventures on her blog, is one busy lady and I often wonder how she gets everything done (although, I do know that she took her laptop to the hospital and was blogging shortly after her second daughter was born–talk about dedication to her art!).

Sarah and her husband, Bob, and their three children attend Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church here in Plain City. Saint Joe’s is, of course, our church, too. Sarah, who did not grow up Catholic, fell in love with the religion after her marriage and conversion. She got her feet wet in the writing world by editing and writing most of the weekly Bulletins for Saint Joe’s after she became a member of the parish staff several years ago.

I have known for many years that Sarah shared my passion for writing. After the Saint Joe’s Bulletins, Sarah continued her writing career with a blog that concentrated on her life as a mother and Catholic convert.  She quickly used her blog as a stepping stone that allowed her to progress to writing articles for other Catholic blogs and newspapers.

Her latest endeavor is her very first book called, Welcome Baby Jesus. The book, which offers ideas for families on celebrating Advent, provides reflections and Scripture quotes to make the Christmas season a bit less about toys and gifts and a lot more about the true meaning of the holiday.

Joe and I want to congratulate Sarah on this exciting new step in her life.

To purchase your copy of Welcome Baby Jesus through Amazon.com, go HERE.

2010 Robin Terry Hand Painted Ornament Features Big Darby Baptist Church.

To celebrate the Bicentennial of Big Darby Baptist Church (1810-2010) this year, Robin Terry decided to feature the church on her annual fundraising ornament for the Plain City Business Association. There are only 100 of these hand painted, signed, and numbered ornaments available. This ornament is the ninth in a series.

Last year’s 2009 ornament featured Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church. A limited number of these ornaments are still available, as well as ornaments from previous years that highlighted Plain City’s other historic buildings and sites, including Bicentennial Park (2003), Farmer’s Bank (2004), the Grandstand (2005), the Train Depot (2006), the Presbyterian Church (2007), and the Methodist Church (2008).

We also have burgundy ornaments from the Bicentennial in 2002 featuring the clock for $10. Please note, these ornaments are not part of Robin Terry’s series. They were made just for Plain City’s Bicentennial.

We currently have the 2010 Robin Terry ornaments here at the drugstore. They are $25 each and all proceeds benefit the Plain City Business Association. We also have limited numbers of ornaments from 2003 to 2009. Unfortunately, the ornament that featured the Clock Building in 2002, and was the first ornament in the series, is no longer available, as it sold out. Ornaments from previous years are $25 each. If you purchase three or more of the ornaments, there is a 20% discount.

Ornaments from 2003 through 2009 can also be purchased at the Plain City Historical Society, located next to Security Bank at 111 West Main Street in downtown Plain City. The Historical Society is open Tuesdays, 10 am to noon; Thursdays, noon to 3 pm; and Saturdays from 10 am to noon. You can stop in during those times to purchase ornaments.

We are putting together a package featuring all of the available ornaments from 2003 to 2010. We will have this ready for Christmas Under the Clock on December 4, so stop in to pick up any ornaments you may have missed and to get the 2010 ornament featuring Big Darby Baptist Church.

Fourth of July Activities in Plain City.

There are a lot of things going on around the Village for the Fourth of July Celebration. Take advantage of some of these fun activities, all of which are occurring on Sunday, July 4th.

First of all, the Knights of Columbus are opening the parking lot of Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church‘s Parish Activity Center (the PAC) for people to view the fireworks. The PAC is located at 670 West Main Street behind the Firehouse. Admission to park in the lot for the fireworks display is $2 per carload. The lot opens at 3 pm to allow people to begin finding choice parking spots. Food will be served at 5 pm. The Knights will serve a hot dog, chips and a pop for $2.50 per person. There will also be a porta-john on site. The public is welcome to eat and stay to watch the fireworks–and this is an excellent place to see the fireworks with an unobstructed view.

The parade through town will begin at 3:30 pm. The Line up for the parade begins at 2:30. The Jonathan Alder Boys Baseball Team State Champs will be featured as the Grand Marshals of the parade. Come out and cheer for the boys.

Plain City Druggist will be in the parade, as well. Make sure you collect all of our goodies. We’ll be throwing candy, balls, beads, and more. The plastic baggies containing our candy will also feature coupons that can be used in the store. So be on the look out for those.

Following the parade, you can gather in Pastime Park for food, fun, games, music, and finally fireworks at 10 pm. The Little Miss and Mister Contest begins at 5:30. Misfit Toys will perform at 6:30. There will be inflatables for the kids from 4-8 pm, face painting, balloon twisting, and lots more.

One thing we would like to remind everyone about: Please do not bring your pets to the fireworks. More animals are lost during fireworks displays than at any other time of the year. Well meaning dog owners bring their dogs out and the loud noises of the fireworks often scare the dogs and they dart. Animal shelters report an increase in the number of lost dogs that are picked up following fireworks each July 4th. Many of these dogs are never reunited with their owners. So do yourself and your pet a favor and leave them safely at home where they cannot get loose if they become scared.

Additionally, while Monday, July 5th is a federal holiday with banks and the post office closing, Plain City Druggist will be open our normal hours of 9-6 (closed from 1:15-2:15 for lunch).

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July.
