Fact or Fiction? Poison Ivy. By Anna Gehres, Our In-House Poison Ivy Powerhouse!

How much do you know about poison ivy? Take this quiz to find out:

T / F: Poison ivy rash can be spread from one person to another.

T / F: You can get poison ivy from simply being near a poison ivy plant.

T / F: You can not get poison ivy from a dead poison ivy plant.

T / F: Some people are immune to poison ivy.

All of the above are FALSE! Here are the facts:

The rash caused by poison ivy is the result of oil found on the plant called urushiol oil. Unless urushiol oil is still on the skin, a poison ivy rash can not be spread from one person to another. The skin must come into direct contact with the oil for a rash to develop. Urusiol oil can still be present on dead plants and in the smoke from burning poison ivy plants.

If you do run into some poison ivy this summer, wash well with soap and water as soon as possible. Remove and wash any clothing that might have come in contact with the poison ivy plant. Should a large rash or a rash on a sensitive area such as the face develop make sure to seek medical attention.

If the rash is small and mild, oatmeal baths or calamine lotion can soothe the itch. A topical cream such as hydrocortisone can be used for a short time to help decrease itching as well.

The Plain City Historical Society Needs Your Help to Raise Operating Funds!

The Plain City Historical Society needs your help as their operating funds are currently running very low. To help raise money, they are planning a few events, but they need your participation.

On September 11, The Union County Covered Bridge Festival and the Shekinah Festival and Auction will take place in and around Plain City. To take advantage of the people who will be coming through town, the Plain City Historical Society will be hosting a Perennial Plant Sale on the sidewalk outside the Historical Society (111 West Main Street). Historical Society President, Karen Kile Vance, is asking for perennial plant donations for the sale. She suggests that as you split your perennials with Fall approaching, you donate some of the divided plants and flowers for the sale. And, if you don’t know how to divide up your plants, Karen will even send out a “non-professional plant splitter” to help you.

Besides donating plants for the sale, the Plain City Historical Society also needs Plain City residents to buy the plants. The Historical Society will be open from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, September 11 to allow you to make your purchases and visit their lovely facility.

There are other ways you can help the Plain City Historical Society, as well. Make sure to attend their monthly meetings, which always fall on the fourth Tuesday of the month and start at 7 pm. The August meeting will be on August 24 at 7 pm and will feature Jack Alston, who is involved with the restoration/renovation projects taking place in downtown/historic Plain City. When you attend the meeting, you can pay your yearly dues (for new or renewing members), as well as make a donation to the “One Dollar Club.” Members participating in this exclusive club, play one dollar per week ($52 per year) to keep the Historical Society “bucking” along.

If you’d just like to make a kind donation to allow the Historical Society to keep history alive and relevant in Plain City, mail a donation to them at P. O. Box 82, Plain City, Ohio 43064.

You can also drop off a donation to them during their hours of operation:

Tuesday, 10 am to Noon

Thursday, Noon to 3 pm

Saturday, 10 am to Noon

The volunteers will be very glad to see you, but even happier if you take them a nice donation.
