The Village of Ada will be running informational articles about Village policies and services currently offered. These articles will be for informational purposes only, and further details and the complete Codified Ordinances may be found on the Village website, www.adaohio.org, or by calling the Village Water Office at 419-634-4045.
On Saturday, June 9th, participants in the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Foundation Seminar will be performing community service throughout the village.
The participants are high school sophomores and juniors from around the state, and they are attending the HOBY seminar being hosted on the campus of ONU that week.
The students are able to assist residents and organizations on that Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. To ensure that the day runs smoothly, residents are asked to contact the Village Office by May 25th to discuss project options and guidelines. Some things to keep in mind – all supplies must be provided onsite by the resident, and the students are not allowed to run electric tools or climb past the first floor of buildings.
The Village is working in cooperation with ONU and the HOBY Foundation to connect residents who need help with the participants who want to help. There is no charge to the resident for this service, and residents do not need to provide lunch for the participants. Bottled water and prepackaged food items may be provided, though not required.
If residents wish to provide monetary support of the program, checks be made payable to “Hugh O’Brian Youth Foundation” and given to the adult with the participants that day. Donations can also be made online at the Foundation’s website: www.hoby.org.
