Council approves money for Fourth of July concert, increases donation

By Amy Eddings
The Ada Village Council voted to contribute $1,500 toward the cost of a free concert by the Lima Symphony Orchestra on July 2 on the grounds of Ohio Northern University, an increase of $500 from last year.

The decision, tabled from the last meeting two weeks ago, came after ONU First Lady Chris DiBiasio addressed council members and Mayor David Retterer.  She and ONU resident artist and music lecturer Kirsten Osbun Manley are spearheading the fundraising efforts for the second annual Fourth of July-themed concert.

Village postpones donation toward free Fourth of July concert

Clarification: The second annual free Fourth of July Holiday Concert on Saturday, July 2, featuring the Lima Symphony Orchestra, will be held outdoors on the mall of Ohio Northern University as it was last year.  It will be held inside the Field House at ONU only in the event of inclement weather.  The article about the event incorrectly stated that the concert would be held in the Field House and not outdoors.  The article also incorrectly listed the date of the next Ada Village Council meeting as Tuesday, June 7.  It is Tuesday, May 17.
