The last meeting of the Hardin Co Hootenannies was opened by President Megan Williams at the Ag Credit meeting room. We like the opportunity to meet in their fine place.   Megan asked Levi Beiler to lead the 4-H pledge and Miranda Holbrook to lead the American Pledge.  Roll call found 11 members present.

Our t-shirts are being printed.  We all signed a Thank you to Trupointe Co-op in Uniopolis for donating the money to purchase the members’ t-shirts.  We are all very appreciative.

Many parents and youngsters identify Kim Light with Ada Cloverbuds

By Darlene Bowers
“I came to Ada for college, met Mark, and never left,” shares Kim Light who grew up in Richwood, Ohio, about 45 miles southeast of Ada.

The couple lived in town until about seven years ago when they moved north of town. “I love the sense of community here; knowing your neighbors, and moving to the country reminds me of how I grew up. Also seeing people I know in town or at the grocery is a nice part of living in Ada, too.”

By Faith Holbrook, reporter

The last meeting of the Hardin Co. Hootenannies was held at advisor Grant Mizek’s farm. President Megan Williams opened the meeting and asked Riley Fleece to lead the American Pledge and Callie Cromer to lead the 4-H Pledge. Roll call was taken by secretary Miranda Holbrook and she asked us to respond with our favorite farm animal. Eleven members were present.

T-shirt money was due today; however, Grant Mizek informed the members that he had a donor who wanted to pay for the member’s t-shirts. We were all thrilled by this kindness. We will have a thank you card ready for everyone to sign at our next meeting.
