Rain didn’t keep people from turning out Dec. 1 for Christmas Under the Clock, sponsored by the Uptown Plain City Organization and area businesses. The evening event took place on Main Street, Chillicothe Street, and Jefferson Avenue.

Christmas and sports made a wonderful combination as a steady flow of people stopped in to browse and enjoy treats at Hometown Huddle, a sports memorabilia store on Main Street.
