The Plymouth Improvement Committee (PIC) is hosting an ice cream social starting at 6 p.m. July 23 in front of the village community building, according to fundraising committee chairman Jennifer Meyer.She said the homemade ice cream will not be the only thing available. There will be a sundae bar, homemade pies, cupcakes and cookies available. The items will be purchased through donation only. Meyer noted all the proceeds will go towards the 2015 bicentennial celebration for the Village of Plymouth. "We will also have the New Washington Band playing music that night at 6:30 p.m.," said Meyer. Meyer said the PIC is divided into four committees, each with the purpose of preparing for the bicentennial. The first assignment the PIC has taken is to try and help raise funds for the bicentennial. Charlie Doan is in charge of contests, Elaine Root is in charge of entertainment, Susan Moore will handle advertising and DiAnn Jamerson will provide the clean-up at the 200th celebration. "We are trying to raise $30,000 for the celebration," she added. Meyer said she has held a bake sale and car wash to help raise funds. She has raised $790 during her first events. She noted it is a daunting task to raise $30,000 but it will all go towards giving Plymouth residents a celebration to remember. The PIP will set up booths at both the Shiloh Ox Roast Fireman's Festival and the Fireman's Festival in Plymouth. She said the group will be selling pens and t-shirts with a bicentennial logo.
