Good-Bye, Jill.

Joe and I want to wish Jill Yutzy much success and luck as she leaves Plain City Druggist behind and heads off on new adventures.

We knew we couldn’t keep Jill long after she got a taste of world traveling on her mission trip to Asia last fall. Jill is off to do more mission work a bit closer to home. We know that she will be very successful in anything she takes on, because she always has a positive outlook and is not afraid to try new things.

Good luck, Jill. We will miss you!

Today, February 19, also happens to be Jill’s birthday, so Happy Birthday, Jill!!

Pictured Above are “The Dream Team.” Left to Right, back row: Steve  (Barb’s husband), Lamphao, Barb, and Aaron. Front Row: Jill and Carmen. Margie is also part of this exclusive team, but she had the very important job of taking the photo!

Lions Club Pancake Breakfast, Saturday, February 19 From 7 am to 11 am.

Join the Plain City Lions Club on Saturday, February 19, from 7 am to 11 am at the Plain City Presbyterian Church (231 East Main Street) for an “All You Can Eat” Pancake Breakfast. The cost is $5 for children 6 and older and for adults.

Advanced tickets can be purchased here at the drugstore, at Schrock Automotive, and at Yoder’s Hardware. Or you can just pay at the door.

In the event of a snow day, the Pancake Breakfast will be moved to Saturday, February 26.

So come out with your appetite and support the Plain City Lions on February 19. We hear that Roger Weeks will be flipping pancakes and he is a tremendous cook! YUM!!

Revival of Plain City Farmers Market Needs Committee Members.

I recently had an email from Chris Long at the Plain City Public Library seeking help for the Plain City Farmers Market.

Chris told me that there were efforts underway to revive the Plain City Farmers Market. Jody Carney, the FFA teacher at Fairbanks High School, is paving the way and Chris has been helping her as everyone else has dropped out.  Jody is also a Plain City resident who wants to get involved in the community and is preparing her students to get involved, as well.  Village Council blessed a Farmers Market program so now it’s a matter of organizing and finding others to help.

Chris mentioned that she knew we carried a few locally made items in the pharmacy and she thought Joe and I might know some individuals who would be interested in serving on a Farmers Market committee.

So how about it?

Chris said that if there was anyone who would be willing to serve on a committee (this would involve a few meetings and committing to about five Monday evenings during market season) or who would like to vend their produce, baked goods, or hand crafted items (for pets, perhaps?), to please contact her by email at clong@plaincitylib.org or by calling the Library at 614-873-4912, ext. 23.

Congratulations to the St. John’s 7th and 8th Grade Girls’ Basketball Team for Being COAL League Champions!!

Congratulations to the St. John’s 7th and 8th grade girls’ basketball team for an undefeated season and for also being the Central Ohio Athletic League (COAL) Champions and the COAL Tournament Champions!

We have a very special interest in this team, because one of the 8th grade point guards is Michaela (Mic-#14) Henderson, who occasionally helps out in the pharmacy and whose mom, Margie, pretty much runs the place when Joe isn’t there (and sometimes even when he is there!).

Way to go Michaela and the St. John’s Girls for a super season!
