A Hometown Christmas

In 2004, a group of Plainville people who were involved in the Rooks County Vision Leadership program decided to resurrect a part of Christmas past in their community, and went on to start a Hometown Christmas tradition.

The leadership group wanted to focus on youth and creating memories like they had as children growing up in Plainville. A visit with Santa, hayrack or carriage rides, melodramas, and a soup supper were just a few of the ideas.

In 2009, Home for the Holidays on Saturday, December 12 carries on that tradition. Here is a schedule of activities:
  • 11:30 a.m. - Free hot dog feed at the VFW
  • 11:00 a.m. - 3 p.m. - Sugar cookie decorating at the library
  • 12:30 p.m. - Cardinal Classic drill team performs at the Township Hall
  • 1:00 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. - Sunflower Clydesdale rides in downtown
  • 1:30 p.m. - Hi-Plains Players perform at Township Hall
  • 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. - Ornament decorating at VFW
  • 2:15 p.m. - Magic Show at VFW
  • 3:00 p.m. - Golf ball drop benefit at old lumber yard

Come and enjoy the fun!
