Ada Civic Engagement Day
Ohio Northern University is currently registering organizations, businesses, and residents for its third annual Ada Civic Engagement (ACE) Day to be held on Saturday, Aug. 23, from 10 a.m. to noon.
A partnership with the village of Ada, the ACE Day program provides opportunities for ONU’s first-year students to not only engage with the community but also contribute to the village’s beautification.
An “ACE site” is any community organization, business, or individual that has a need and would be willing to provide a service project for ONU students. The types of service opportunities could range from painting, landscaping and planting trees to cleaning, washing fire trucks, decorating and cooking. The ACE site is responsible for providing all materials, tools and directions for how the project is to be carried out as well as supervision during the project.
Registration forms will be accepted through Aug. 1. Registration forms and additional information can be found at www.onu.edu/aceday.
Flowers in Railroad Park
Flowers baskets have been placed on the light poles in front of Ada's Railroad Park and in front of the Depot. This is done with seed money from a citizen of Ada and some additional money from the Mayor's annual budget. The goal is to have the same baskets throughout the commercial district of Ada in 2015 with sponsorships from individuals, service clubs and organizations as well as from businesses in and around Ada. Costs and procedures will be publicized later this summer. The fee will be greater for the first year to support the purchase of the baskets and each year there will be a fee to pay the greenhouse to maintain the flowers. All are encouraged to visit the Railroad Park and enjoy the well kept grounds as well as to consider participating in 2015.
