Meet Our New, Fourth Year Pharmacy Student for April, Emma Robinow!

We’d like to introduce you to our pharmacy student for the month of April, Emma Robinow. Emma is a fourth year student who will be graduating in May from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy. She’ll spend her month long rotation with us learning all about independent pharmacy.

Emma grew up and still lives in Yellow Springs, Ohio (near Dayton). She spent the last several years commuting to Columbus for classes. She hopes that after graduation, she’ll be able to cut her drive time down and spend less hours on the road by working closer to home.

Here is what Emma had to say about herself:

“I graduated with a Bachelor of Science (B. S.) in dietetics from the University of Dayton in May of 2008. I then completed a year-long internship at Kettering Medical Center in Kettering, Ohio. I really enjoyed the internship, but realized that dietetics wasn’t quite the right fit for me, so I kept searching and applied to pharmacy school at Ohio State. When I started pharmacy school in 2009, I had never worked in a pharmacy. The past four years in pharmacy school, however, have shown me that I made the right decision by choosing pharmacy.

“I spent a lot of time this past year setting up a Medication Therapy Management program at a small pharmacy in Yellow Springs. This project helped me realize how much I enjoy the small town pharmacy setting. I am excited to graduate in May and would love to someday work for an independent pharmacy in the Dayton area.

“In my spare time, I enjoy being active and outdoors. I play tennis and volleyball, enjoy hiking with my dog, Dale, or relaxing at home with a good book. Lately, my time has been consumed with planning my wedding in September. I became engaged to my fiancée, Jake, while zip-lining in the mountains near Boone, NC.

“I am looking forward to spending the month of April at Plain City Druggist. Please stop by and say hello!”

Plain City Lions Club Annual Dinner and Auction is Thursday, April 25!

We always know spring is here when the Plain City Lions Club auction arrives. This year, those funny loving Lions are hoping you’ll join them the last Thursday of the month and raise money for their many, many service projects and local charities. This auction, which is filled with jokes and teasing along with tons of super buys, always leaves people with full bellies, giant smiles, and empty wallets (people bid often to help support a good cause!).

You can bid on several great items at the auction including: Four tires donated by Schrock Automotive, one week’s use of a Florida condo, Echo gas string trimmer/blower combo which retails for $300, a Lake Erie perch dinner for the lucky buyer and ten other family and friends (courtesy of Captains and Cooks Richard Murray and Roger Weeks), Spanish lessons with Lion Veronica Taylor, and a garage door opener installation.

The Lions Club Annual Dinner and Auction will be held on Thursday, April 25, in the Banquet room at Der Dutchman Restaurant in Plain City at 6:30 pm.

Tickets are $15, which includes a family style dinner and entry to the auction. The meal will be served at 6:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased at True Value Hardware (see Lion Perry Yoder), Schrock Automotive (see Lion Bill Davis), and here at the pharmacy (see Joe). The auctioneers this year are Geoff Smith, Frank Roby, and Jay Kurtz.

Stop in the pharmacy as soon as possible and buy your tickets! You will have a roaring good time!
