Shekinah Christian School in Plain City hosted its first Fall Celebration for the community on Oct. 15. “It’s been amazing… and I am so glad we were able to offer something for the entire community to enjoy,” said Amber Purdy, the school’s advancement director.

Having a great time in the straw bed at the Shekinah Fall Celebration are Plain City residents Arthur Lewis and his younger sister, Annie. Overseeing the fun was Cory DiCarro of Hilliard, who said it took children “quite a while” to warm up to the potential of the straw bed. “They would stand there at first, unsure of it, but soon it became like WrestleMania where they would jump off the bales and into the bed,” he said.
