Holiday Extravaganza December 7!

A LOT is happening in Pine Lake on December 7! The day begins with a special P.L.A.I.N. holiday breakfast at the Beach House, 9:30am – 11:30am. The first 10 folks in the door receive a free breakfast. After that breakfast is only $3.00 for everyone. We hope you visit and eat a hearty meal because after breakfast is the Pine Lake Makers Market and after that the Cookie Exchange, Lighting of Lake, and Santa Claus! Just keep reading below.
Also we are still looking for warm coats for Rockbridge Elementary School. Bring them to the breakfast. And don’t forget to do your holiday online shopping at and select PLAIN as your organization to support. A portion of your purchase will go to PLAIN.  Of course you can also click on our Join/Donate links above.

All your holiday shopping is right here in our beautiful neighborhood. Begin your tour at the old City Hall (4651 Forrest Rd.) Stop in there to check out TEN (!) artists and also to get a printed list of addresses to visit on the tour. More information is here on the Facebook page: click here

And there is still more! Starting at 6:00pm is the annual Cookie Exchange, Lighting of the Lake, and Santa Claus is coming to town at 6:30pm!!!

For the cookie exchange piece, bring 2-3 dozen homemade cookies to the beach house kitchen, and give them directly to a volunteer there (if you just set them down and walk away, we don’t know who to give a plate of cookies to at the end!). We’ll put some of them out for general consumption, and the rest will be distributed among all of those who also brought cookies. At the end of the evening, retrieve your cookie platter and a bag of assorted homemade cookies!

If baking is not your thing, no worries. Come be with your neighbors and eat some cookies set out for all to enjoy. Hot drinks will be available as well.

Volunteer if you can help with setup and cleanup, or anything in between.

Hope to see you there with cookies in hand!
