Nothing is planned, rehearsed or written. All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and the story can end up anywhere.

More cash mobs...more Music on Main...in 2013

Watch for more Ada cash mobs. That’s the word from the Buy Ada First committee. After a first-ever try at a cash mob on Oct. 16 at Reichert’s, the committee hopes to do a new one each quarter.

Fred Reichert told the committee, which met on Oct. 24, that the cash mob at his Main Street store “exceeded his expectations.”

The committee hopes to hold a winter, spring summer and fall cash mob in 2013. Locations are now under consideration.

In addition to cash mobs, the committee hopes to schedule three Music on Main events next summer. One was held this past summer and was received with great success at the depot park.
