Meet Our Student Pharmacist for September, Sarah Mietz.


We are so lucky to have a student pharmacist this month from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy. Sarah Mietz is a fourth year student who will graduate in May 2017 and then go on to practice as a pharmacist. In this posting, we’d like to introduce you to Sarah, so you will know a bit about her when you stop in the pharmacy throughout September.

My name is Sarah Mietz and I am a fourth year pharmacy student at The Ohio State University. I grew up in a small town outside Buffalo and Niagara Falls, New York.

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at State University of New York at Geneseo (SUNY Geneseo). While at SUNY Geneseo, I instructed a general chemistry laboratory course and completed research in physical chemistry. I had always been attracted to the healthcare profession, wanting to use my knowledge to impact patient care. At the suggestion of an advisor, I researched the profession of pharmacy and decided it would be a great career to pursue my passions.

After moving to Columbus for pharmacy school, I worked at Mount Carmel New Albany Surgical Hospital as an intern for two years. I was also a pharmacy student coordinator at Physician’s Care Connection, the largest free clinic in Franklin County. Following graduation, I hope to complete two years of pharmacy residency. My current interests include informatics, cardiology, and critical care.

I am excited to be at Plain City Druggist this month and learn about independent pharmacy and compounding medications. Please stop by and say hello!

9th Annual Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival is September 23-25.


The 2016 Union County Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival will run from Friday, September 23 through Sunday, September 25. The event will be held again this year at the Pottersburg Bridge, 17141 Inskeep-Cratty Road, North Lewisburg. General admission is $5 and includes both Saturday and Sunday. Children under 12 are admitted for free. There will be tons of great music, food, and history.

When Joe and I attended Mechanicsburg Junior High School, one of our super history teachers was Mr. Bill Purk. Mr. Purk is also a wonderful musician who performed at my and Joe’s wedding reception. Mr. Purk and The Muleskinner Band will be playing at the Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival on Friday for the Sunset dinner on the bridge. This is a popular event and you must make reservations. Call 937-642-6279 to reserve as seating is limited.

You can also have breakfast on the bridge on Saturday from 9 am to 10:30 am.

Mr. Purk and The Muleskinner Band will also be playing on Sunday, September 25 from noon until 1 pm. And have you ever wondered exactly what a muleskinner is? Mr. Purk always had mules on his farm and, with his love of history and of this intelligent animal, he chose the name for the band. A muleskinner is a mule driver who was able to keep a team of mules moving. Since mules are known to be very smart, a “skinner” was someone who could outsmart the mules. Skinner came from the slang term “skin” meaning outsmart. Mr. Purk has been known in his life to outsmart a lot of mules and students.

For a full musical line up, go HERE.

There will be a special Saturday evening picnic from 5:30-7:00 pm featuring music by Sugar Creek Bluegrass. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling Tina Knotts, Chamber and Tourism Director, at the Union County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 937-642-6279 or by emailing: tknotts@unioncounty.org.

On Sunday, the Ohio Village Muffins Baseball Team will hold an exhibition game at noon.

This is the ninth year for this festival and it only continues to get better and better!
