United Way Letter to the Editor

October 18, 2017

Dear Editor:

The 2018 United Way of Hardin County 2018 Campaign is now underway, and we are working hard to reach our goal of $220,000.   
Chris and I are honored to serve as Honorary Co-Chairs of the Campaign this year because we believe in the 20 nonprofit, results-oriented programs that United Way supports, programs that are vital to serving individual and family needs in a variety of areas, including health care, children, youth, seniors, and people in crisis.  Like many in our community, we want to insure that those who benefit from these essential programs can continue to do so. 

United Way can make a difference in Hardin County

Dear Editor,

   "It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it". These words by Nelson Mandela, have inspired United Way to fulfill it's mission, mobilizing the caring power of our community. Through the communities support, our non profit agencies are able to continue the many services provided to our residents, in the areas of health, education and welfare.

   When you support United Way, you are also investing in the strength and future of our communities. Any donation or pledge, small or large is greatly appreciate and will fulfill our investment! 

Letter: School levy is a renewal - not a new tax

Icon viewers:

 We are asking that you support the upcoming school income tax levy renewal for the Ada Schools. 

The tax rate would remain the same as it has since 1992.  This is only a renewal and not a new tax.  The current revenue from these funds compose nearly 10 percent of the school’s general revenue budget.  This is a significant amount and is necessary to maintain the quality education our students receive. 

Many thanks to many who have Harvest and Herb Fest’ successful

The Ada Area Chamber of Commerce Harvest and Herb Festival Queen Committee would like to give a huge thank you to Mike and Marie Gossman for helping to decorate the float again this year and for escorting our 2017 Harvest and Herb Queen and her court in the 32nd Annual Ada Area Chamber of Commerce Harvest and Herb Festival parade.

Continue the Excellence

Continue the Excellence

Dear Ada Community,

Continue our community’s excellence - support the November school levy

Dear Ada School District community:

I am consistently impressed with the high level of commitment that Ada Schools faculty and staff have for their students and the community.  It is refreshing to live in a community that takes great pride in their school.  I am amazed at the community’s spirit in supporting the school, the students and the teachers,

This November 7th, our community will be asked to approve a RENEWAL income tax levy to support the operating expenses of our district.  

Hardin United Way helps us all

Dear Editor:

We are honored to serve our community through the United Way of Hardin County.  This year we get the privilege to serve as the 2018 Campaign Co-Chairs.  We are serving in this capacity because we sincerely believe in the United Way of Hardin County and the assistance they provide to the many families and individuals in need.  This year our theme is “Red, White & U…United We Can!”  

Your support is needed on Nov. 7

Continuing the Excellence of Ada Schools.  The committee wishes to thank the
residents of the community for your encouragement and support. The RENEWAL of the 3/4 percent income tax levy is important.  NO TAX INCREASE! NO NEW TAXES!

Letter to the Editor

Thank you for all you do to promote the Hardin County Red Cross Learn To Swim program.

Our classes were full this year.  We even had 2 Level 1 (Beginner) Classes because of the requests/registrations and for the first time in quite a while we had a very advanced class of Level 5.

Without your help to get the word out to the public each year this program would not reach so many students.

My sincere appreciation and thanks!!!

It takes a village!

The Ada Public Library Summer Reading Programs is only as successful as the efforts of all involved; we recognize and appreciate the Ada Schools and Chanda Smith, School Librarian in their willingness to let us come in and talk about Summer Reading with the kids, and the office staff and teachers for sending our materials home. We are truly grateful for the dedication of the individuals and families who signed-up for and participated in Summer Reading, their commitment to reading and infectious excitement for the programs AND the prizes. And I personally appreciate and recognize all the efforts of the library VOLUNTEENS and staff, Darlene, Debbi, Karen, Karin, Preema, and Rhett.
