Someone will win an iPad; It might as well be you

Here's a message from the Ada Academic Boosters: Want to win an iPad for Christmas? If you are an Ada sixth grader through senior, you are in luck.

 For every 10 boxtops for Education or Campbell Point of Education labels that you bring to the school, you will receive one chance at winning the grand prize of an iPad. So, start collecting labels.

The final day to enter is Dec. 1. The winner will be drawn on the live video feed during morning announcements. Bring box tops to your English teacher’s classroom. Put 10 labels in a plastic baggie with your name and drop it off to your English teacher.

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.
