Check the photos below -

Hey, kids, invite Timothy Chrissobolis to your next party.

Hey, adults, invite Timothy’s mom, Erin, to your next party. And don’t forget to ask them to bring something chocolate for dessert.

The mother-son duo won first place in their respective divisions (adult and youth) in Saturday’s 7th annual chocolate bake-off at the Ada Public Library.

Timothy entered a brownie cake with cookie butter frosting. His mom entered an Oreo chocolate cake.

Depending upon how you looked at it, the four judges either had a very tough time or, had the time of their life, tasting and scoring the entries.

Struggling with grief

Mental Health Recovery Services Board program offered at Ada Public Library

The Mental Health Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize and Hardin Counties will hold a series of free programs focusing on the struggle to overcome grief.

The programs take place in the Ada Public Library from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays, March 6, through May 8, according to Chris Estes, Prevention Marketing Specialist, LOSS Team Coordinator.

Estes asks: “Are you struggling with your grief, over a death, a relationship, your pet, a life change? When Option A doesn’t work out, go to Option B, which is facing adversity, building resilience and finding joy.”

The colors around us

Coloring club at work in the public library

• Interested in joining the Ada Public Library coloring club? The next meeting is 3:30 p.m., Friday, Jan. 18, at the library.

The club meeting was pretty quiet. You might say, quiet as in “stress-relieving quiet.”

Yet, there were animals, enchanted forests, secret gardens and kaleidoscope designs radiating from the artists’ palettes.

Three members of informal adult coloring club at the Ada Public Library sat around a table keenly focused on their work on Friday afternoon.
