Meet Our September Pharmacy Student, Michael Salem.

We currently have a fourth year Ohio State pharmacy student helping us in the drugstore for the month of September. Michael Salem is originally from North Olmsted, a small suburb on the Westside of Cleveland, Ohio. He attended St. Edward High School in Lakewood, Ohio before moving to Columbus in 2004 to attend The Ohio State University. Michael completed his undergraduate degree in 2009, earning a Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences. That same year, he was accepted to OSU’s Doctor of Pharmacy program and has been working towards his PharmD degree ever since. (Just six more months to go, hooray!!).

When Michael was selecting his rotations for this, his final year of pharmacy school, he thought the opportunity to come to Plain City Druggist represented a unique opportunity to observe an independent pharmacy that services a special patient population.

In his free time, Michael really enjoys hanging out with friends and staying active- playing basketball, lifting weights, and spending time with his dog, Combo. After school, he hopes to move back to the Cleveland area to be closer to his family.

In the future, Michael hopes to someday find the pharmacy niche that best suits him and to start his own business that will allow him to provide valuable health information and pharmaceutical care to improve patient’s quality of life through optimized medication utilization. It will be a long road to achieve this goal, but one that Michael believes will be very gratifying and full of learning opportunities to improve himself as a pharmacist.

Please stop in and say hello to Michael and give him some hometown friendliness this month.

Vote for Black and Orange Cat Foundation in the Chase Community Giving Campaign from September 6 to September 19!

Black and Orange Cat Foundation is nominated to participate in the Chase Community Giving campaign where 196 groups will be chosen out of thousands to win cash prizes. The group with the most votes will win $250,000, while runners-up have the chance to win $100,000, $50,000, $20,000, and $10,000.

Check out the rules for voting by going HERE. Chase customers with an online account will receive two votes at www.chasegiving.com. You can only use one of those votes for Black and Orange. I would suggest using the other vote for PetPromise, who is also nominated and would like to win the $250,000 to build their cage-less Animal Community Center.

Facebook users who allow access to the Chase Community Giving app will also receive two votes. You can again only use one of those votes for Black and Orange. Facebook users will also have an opportunity to earn one bonus vote on Facebook. According to Chase, this bonus vote may be cast for any Eligible Nominated Charity even if the voter has already cast a vote for the same charity–so you could use your bonus vote again for Black and Orange.

Vote for Black and Orange on Facebook HERE.

Chase Customers who are also Facebook users can vote at www.ChaseGiving.com and Facebook. If a voter who is a Chase customer casts votes on both www.ChaseGiving.com and Facebook, the voter may vote for the same charity twice – once on www.ChaseGiving.com and once on Facebook. The same voter may vote a third time on Facebook if that voter earns a Bonus vote. The bonus vote can be used for Black and Orange, as well.

Earn an extra bonus vote on Facebook by clicking “Like, Send, or Tweet” on the page after you vote. If anyone follows the link and votes, you get an extra bonus vote that can be used for Black and Orange.

Chase Customers could potentially vote five times–and they could vote for Black and Orange three times–once at ChaseGiving.com, once on Facebook, and again on Facebook with a bonus vote!

Vote on Facebook HERE.

If you are a Chase Customer, Vote at ChaseGiving.com HERE.

Please help the kitties win. Black and Orange would be eternally grateful for just the $10,000 prize!!

The rest of the Shekinah Festival gets underway at sunrise on Saturday the 8th with hot air balloon rides and breakfast beginning at 7 am. Pancakes, sausage, coffee, and donuts will be some of the mouth watering breakfast items available. As always, there will also be lots of other food, activities for children, and many homemade items for sale. The much anticipated auction gets started at 10 am with the furniture and crafts portion. The hand-quilted quilts will be auctioned at 1 pm. Many of the auction items can be viewed on the web site.

This is the 33rd year for “The Biggest Little Festival in Ohio,” which is the main way Shekinah Christian School raises money to keep their tuition rates affordable. Please stop by and support them. The Shekinah Festival takes place at the Shekinah Christian School located at 10040 Lafayette-Plain City Road, just outside of Plain City.
