Saturday, April 30, will be a drug disposal day where you can turn in old or no longer used medicines for proper disposal. For those of us in Plain City, the closest location to take our medicines for disposal is Dublin Methodist Hospital.
To look for other locations that might be closer to you, go HERE and put in your zip code or county and city.
The Madison County Sheriff’s office will also be participating in the drug disposal day. At that time, they will also be collecting old cell phones for the 911 Cell Phone Bank program. This program provides emergency communications for the elderly or victims of abuse who need the help within our community.
Collection of expired and unused drugs, as well as cell phones, will be held on April 30 between 10 am and 2 pm at two locations in Madison County: the Madison County Sheriff’s Office located between Garfield Avenue and Elm Street in London and across from the West Jefferson Police Department in the village parking lot near the gazebo.
Happy Birthday on April 29 to our Good Friend, Ernie Sparks, Proprietor of Ernie’s Medicine Shoppe in London.
Happy Birthday to our good friend and fellow pharmacist, Ernie Sparks, who will celebrate his birthday on Friday, April 29. Ernie, as many of you know, owns Ernie’s Medicine Shoppe in London. Ernie was Joe’s mentor while Joe was still in pharmacy school and helped Joe when he decided to open Plain City Druggist in 1999.
Ernie, we hope you will have a very happy birthday relaxing with the dogs, taking a spin in the Drug Bug, and doing all your favorite non-pharmacy related things (hey, everyone needs a break from work sometimes).
We want to congratulate Lauren Prochaska for signing a free agent contract with the Seattle Storm. Lauren will now head off to their training camp, which begins on May 15. Way to go, Lauren! We know you will soon be setting records in the WNBA.
