Meet Our Student Pharmacist for December, Marie Corbo.

We have a new student pharmacist from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy for the month of December. Please make Marie feel welcome when you stop in the drugstore.

Here is what Marie has to say about herself:

“Hi! My name is Marie Corbo. I am from northeast Ohio. I grew up loving guitars, dogs, music, mathematics, and spending time with friends and family. I love to tell jokes and make people laugh. I also enjoy peace and quiet from time to time, but I like to work really hard, as well.

“I became interested in pharmacy after a shadowing experience at Hillcrest Hospital when I was 16. My great aunt suggested that I continue to pursue my interest in pharmacy and apply to Ohio State’s pharmacy program. As a student, I became even more interested in hospital pharmacy, but I also would like to know more about compounding, MTMs (Medication Therapy Management), and community pharmacy–that is why my advisor suggested a rotation at Plain City Druggist!

“Next year I hope to do a general one-year hospital residency and then I plan to move to Cleveland once I’m done with school.”

Join Us on Saturday, December 7, for Our Open House During Christmas Under the Clock.

Please join us this Saturday, December 7, for our Open House and Customer Appreciation evening from 5:30-9 pm during Christmas Under the Clock. We will have lots of food (twenty dozen homemade cookies baked by Cherie’s church youth group–YUM) and the small glass bottles of soda that everyone loves.

We will also be signing folks up for two $250 VISA gift cards that UPCO (Uptown Plain City Organization) and the Village of Plain City are giving away to two lucky winners. You can enter to win at all participating open house locations during Christmas Under the Clock. The more open houses you visit, the more chances you have to win. Pick up a map at the first open house you visit to locate all of the other places holding open houses where you can enter to win the gift cards.

You can also get an extra ticket and chance to win the VISA cards if you bring a non-perishable food item or toiletry to the Plain City Food Pantry, 156 West Main Street.

Here at the drugstore, we will also be giving away an iPad to one winner, 12 years and older. So stop in and sign up to win the VISA gift cards and an iPad!

While our open house kicks off at 5:30 pm, Christmas Under the Clock actually gets under way at 5 pm with the Tree Lighting Ceremony downtown in Bicentennial Park (the Flatiron). There will be local carolers, choirs, baton twirlers, the Jonathan Alder Band, and Santa himself at the Tree Lighting. The tree will be lit up by the Tree Lighting Ambassadors, winners of the Christmas Coloring Contest.

Once you’ve been dazzled by the tree lighting ceremony, head over to the Plain City Auction to bid on Christmas decorations and gift baskets. The bidding only lasts about an hour, so don’t delay. Proceeds from the auction will benefit UPCO (to continue funding the celebration each year) and the Plain City Food Pantry.

You can then take a horse drawn wagon ride to Yoder’s True Value Hardware for photos with Santa. On your way, stop by the Plain City Library for live music with Classical Sounds and the Friends of the Library’s Book and Novelty Sale. The sale will include holiday novelties, as well as an enormous book sale in the library’s large meeting room. There will also be gingerbread decorating from Art the Experience and Tolles Career and Technical Center.

While you are in the library, check out their Booklovers Ornaments for sale to benefit the Friends of the Library. These handcrafted and one-of-a-kind ornaments are filled with paper from classic recycled books including A Christmas Carol, Heidi, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Jane Eyre, and many more. Shatter-proof acrylic ornaments are also available featuring children’s book characters and comics. New ornaments will be added weekly through Christmas. These unique ornaments are $5 each and can be purchased a the library (305 West Main Street), Monday to Thursday 10 am to 9 pm and Saturday 10 am to 6 pm. They will also be available during the Holiday Open House from 5:30 to 9 pm.

Across from the Library, vendors will be set up in the old elementary school (340 West Main Street) selling crafts and lots of unique items. PetPromise rescue group will also be set up there with adoptable cats for people to meet. If you bring a donation of pet food for their pet food pantry, you can get an extra entry in the drawing for the VISA gift cards.

And the Union County Humane Society (UCHS) will have adoptable kittens at Plain City Animal Hospital, 209 West Main Street, and adoptable dogs at ASE Feed and Supply, 211 South Jefferson Avenue. The dogs will be available to meet from 5:30 to 8 pm. ASE will also donate $5 for every bag of dog food sold during the event to UCHS. And if you don’t have a dog, buy a bag to donate to the shelter and ASE will still give the $5 donation!

ASE will also be featuring family friendly holiday movies during Movie at the Mill. Stop by for hot chocolate and watch a holiday movie projected on the BIG screen–the really big screen–the side of the elevator!

After you come out to visit us, make sure to drop by Rooms that Bloom Florist next to Lovejoy’s IGA and meet some elf friends.

Rock on Ice will be doing ice sculpting in Bicentennial Park following the Tree Lighting.

You can also find out more about what is going on by LIKING Christmas Under the Clock on Facebook HERE.

While you can walk Main Street downtown, it is a little more tricky to get out to us on Route 42. Luckily, there will be shuttles available to take people from Yoder’s Hardware to Lovejoy’s IGA and up and down Jefferson Avenue (Route 42). Let the skilled Christmas Under the Clock volunteer drivers get you safely where you need to go.

If you buy gift items during your trek on Main Street and Jefferson Avenue, we’ll have someone in the pharmacy from 5:30 to 9 pm wrapping presents for a donation to Black and Orange Cat Foundation. Bring as many boxes as you want us to wrap and we’ll provide the paper, bows, tape, and gift wrapping expertise for a donation that will help support spay and neuter efforts for stray and homeless cats in the Plain City area. We will also have a table set up with items for sale that benefit Black and Orange. Included in those special goodies are homemade dog treats! Buy a baggie for your pooch for just $1.

We also want to send out a huge thank you to Julie Weaver for all that she does for Christmas Under the Clock and UPCO all year long. Julie took over on a lot of the Village activities a few years ago when Joe and I became a bit burnt out. So thank you, Julie, for keeping this wonderful tradition going! We appreciate all that you do so much!
