Welcome Home to the 585th!

The 585th Ohio Army National Guard Military Police Unit passed by the pharmacy this morning at a bit before noon. Loaded into four large buses, the military convoy was escorted by police and motorcycles bedecked with American flags. We lined the road with our own flags, waving and welcoming them home. We want to thank the 585th for performing their duties in Iraq this past year and to send them many blessings for serving their country. 

Welcome home.

Walk in the Sunshine, but Don’t Get Burned! By Anna Gehres, Pharmacy Student Extraordinaire.

With the summer sun here to stay for awhile, it is a good time to review sun safety and sunburn treatment. Sunshine is essential for overall health and relaxation. However, too much sun can be harmful. Here are some tips to play it safe in the sun:

  • Limit your time in the sun: the sun is strongest between 10am and 4pm.
  • If you are outside, wear protective clothing.
    • Don’t forget your ears, neck AND eyes!
  • Be sure to wear sunscreen.

About that sunscreen…

  • Use a sunscreen with at LEAST a sun protection factor (SPF) 15.
  • Look for a sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection.
  • Most importantly, apply sunscreen!

Apply 30 minutes before going out into the sun.

Reapply every 2 hours during the peak sun hours.

Reapply more often if swimming or sweating.

Avoid sunscreen/bug repellent combinations, as sunscreen needs reapplied.

What to do if you get sunburned?

The best way to treat sunburn is to prevent it! For a minor sunburn (no blisters) take a cool bath or apply a cool water-compress. Sunburn can be painful, but there are pain relief options that can be used. Just ask us at the pharmacy and we will help you find the best product! If the burn is severe (fever, chills, upset stomach, confusion), seek medical attention immediately.

Any questions? Just come on in and ask us!

585th Ohio Army National Guard Coming Through Plain City on Friday, August 13, Around Noon.

The 585th Ohio Army National Guard Military Police Unit will be returning home this Friday, August 13. They have been in Iraq for a year, assisting in rebuilding the country. They left the Marysville Training and Community Center last year on August 16.

The Union County Military Family Support Group and the Union County Veterans Service Office are encouraging Union County residents to line the route the 585th will take on their way home to Marysville in order to welcome these brave service people back into our community. The troops will be coming from I-70 using U. S. 42 heading north through Plain City (along the bypass). The bus convoy, which will be escorted by police, will then head from Route 42 northwest along Industrial Parkway, west on Fifth Street in Marysville, north on Main Street (through Uptown Marysville), north on U.S. 31 (Ellwood Avenue to North Maple Street), then left on Amrine Mill Road to Marysville High School. There will be a one hour community ceremony at around 1 pm to celebrate the 585th’s homecoming at the Marysville High School Football Field. The public is invited attend.

The 585th bus convoy is expected to arrive in Plain City between 11:30 am to 12 pm on Friday the 13th (not an unlucky day, at all). We would like to ask everyone to line the parade route in Plain City. The caravan will come in to Plain City on Route 42 and follow the bypass out of town to Industrial Parkway. The Plain City VFW and American Legion will furnish flags to everyone. The flags can be picked up in front of Plain City Lanes Bowling Alley starting at 11 am on Friday. People should be in place along 42 by 11:30 am to welcome the troops home.
