The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will take place on Saturday, October 24 from 10 am to 2 pm. During this yearly event, you can turn in old or no longer used medicines for proper disposal. We know that many of you may have medications that have expired or that you don’t take any more and this is a perfect way to make sure they are destroyed so that no one gets hurt.

To find out more about the Take Back Day, visit the web site HERE.

To find a disposal location near you, go HERE and put in your zip code or county and city.

In Union County, you can turn in unused and expired medications at these sites:

The Union County Health Department is hosting a free community tire collection event on Saturday, October 17 at the Richwood Fairgrounds1 Gill Street in Richwood, from noon-3 pm (will end earlier if trucks are full).
 
The collection is free and funded through a grant awarded to the Union County Health Department by the Ohio EPA. There is a 10 tire limit per load. The event is intended for residents to dispose of personal unwanted tires. This event should not be used by businesses for commercial tire disposal.

The Orchard and Company is Open Weekends Beginning September 12.

fall-apple-harvest-picture-id154416226

The Orchard and Company, a family friendly destination, will be open beginning this Saturday, September 12 for their annual Family Fun on the Farm from 11 am-6 pm, September and October weekends through November 1st.

A safe re-opening plan, approved by the Health Department, has been put into place at The Orchard and Company. Some of the changes being implemented include signage and ground markings as a reminder to social distance. Maintaining a clean facility has always been a priority, but additional sanitizing practices have been set up.

You can take part in the “U-Pick Apples” as different varieties of apples become ready for picking. Check out the web site HERE for picking schedules, pricing, and the type of apple that is ready to pick.

The Orchard and Company features, not only an apple orchard, but also many exciting activities meant to entice visitors from Plain City and across the state.

For children, there are tons of fun activities that will keep them on the move, including a pedal car track, tire climb, jumping pillow, zip lines, and more.

All activities will be open except the corn pit and wagon ride, because, unfortunately, there’s no practical way to sanitize or encourage social distancing with those two activities. There will be new activities to replace the corn pit and wagon rides.

The Orchard and Company is located south of Plain City at 7255 US Highway 42 North at the intersection of US Highway 42 and Price Hilliard Road, just a short, scenic drive from Columbus, London, Marysville, or Dayton. They are located across the road from Canaan Middle School.

The Orchard and Company would also like to encourage bicycle aficionados to ride out. The Orchard and Company is only a few miles from the Heritage Rail Trail’s endpoint on Cemetery Pike in Plain City.

An Orchard Festival Farm Yard day pass is $10.00 for adults and children (3-18), $5.00 for seniors. Children two and under receive free admission.

Fishing in The Orchard’s pond requires an additional $2. Gem Mining to search for “pay dirt” gems is $5.00, while a hunt for fossils is $6.00.

The Orchard and Company can also accommodate large groups and parties once we are done with this crazy virus. Contact The Orchard for a place to host school outings, birthday parties, reunions, weddings, company meetings, and other special occasions.

St. Joseph’s Catholic Church’s Fish Fry Fridays Return Friday, February 28.

2020 fish fry

It is that time of year again. Time to enjoy a fish meal each Friday during Lent. Once again Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church and the local Knights of Columbus will be holding their Friday Fish Fries every Friday through April 3. The Fish Fries will be held at the Parish Activity Center (the PAC), 670 West Main Street (behind the firehouse) from 5:30-8 pm.

Meals are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $6 for children 12 and under. Besides either two pieces of fried or baked fish (please request the baked fish if you would like it), the adult meal also includes soda or coffee, and two sides–cole slaw, fries, or macaroni and cheese. The child meal includes one piece of fish, two sides, and a beverage. Additionally, you can purchase homemade desserts for a donation that benefits the St. Martin de Porres Society.

Carry out service of the meals is also available.

So please come out this Friday, February 28, and support the Knights of Columbus. Join them each Friday (March 6, 13, 20, 27, and April 3) throughout Lent (excluding Good Friday on April 10) for a delicious meal and lots of enjoyable socializing with neighbors, friends, and family.
