Letter: Red Cross learn to swim program needs volunteers

Icon viewers:

Summer is here and so is the time for Red Cross Swimming Lessons!  As in past years the Ada Learn To Swim Program is in need of aides to assist with the lessons.

Ages 12 and up, including adults are encouraged to sign up to help others learn swimming skills. As little as an hour each day of lessons is helpful.  Lessons begin the week of July 16 for 2 weeks, Monday through Friday each week.

Help is needed on deck for paperwork as well as in the water.  You do not need to be a good swimmer to help others...we'll help you as well:) A training session will be held on TUESDAY, July 10, from 9-11 am. 

VFW ‘Thank You” letter

The Ada VFW Ream McElroy Post 9381 held its second annual “Tee up for a Vet” Golf Scramble at the Colonial Golfer’s Club on Saturday. It turned out to be a beautiful day as 13 teams teed off at 10 a.m.


Along with many other golfer’s games along the way, on Hole # 4, we had a competition for a hole-in-one.  Tommy Tire of Ada provided a truck as the prize.

Sad to say, no one won the truck.


The team of Austin Oglesbee, Ryan Risner, Jeremy Wilson, and Troy Hunsicker won the first place prize of $300 with a round of 60.
