Rain came down the weekend of the Shekinah Festival & Benefit Auction, but the Plain City event was far from a wash. Visitors braved the inclement weather Sept. 7-8 to partake in family-friendly fun, place bids in the auction, and consume delicious food. Proceeds benefited Shekinah Christian School.
