Letter: 3rd annual Days of Caring

Dear Ada Icon readers,

The United Way of Hardin County “Days of Caring” is a yearly event that takes place each June. This event started with around 20 volunteers  and is continually growing with last year's event having 100 volunteers completing 9 service projects in Hardin County. Days of Caring is established to promote the spirit and value of local volunteerism.  We aim to increase the awareness of local human service agencies and schools while demonstrating what people working together for the community’s good can accomplish.  Our goal this year is to double last year's volunteers and service projects.

Letter to the Icon: Proposed election maps don't fairly represent Ohioans

In a democracy, should elected representatives listen to the will of the

State Senators Matt Huffman (Allen County) and Rob McColley (Hardin County)
say no.

They've proposed new election maps that don't fairly represent Ohioans.
Instead, these rigged districts continue the "gerrymandering" that means that
in many Ohio elections, the winner is pre-determined.

Letter to the Icon: Sean Beck

I am humbled and honored to have been elected as one of Ada’s next Village Councilors. Having the support of the village that I’ve called “home” for almost a decade means the world to me. I will do my best for all the wonderful people who live, work, and play in Ada. I fully intend to keep the promises that were laid out during my campaign. Ensuring that government activities are accessible, transparent, and engaging is incredibly important to me, and the people of Ada. 

Letter to the Icon: D'Arca is a stand-out candidate

In the Ada School Board race, Denise D'Arca is a stand-out candidate. D'Arca has the mix of personal qualities, professional experience and commitment that we need in this role. 

Letter to the Icon: Library response to pandemic

We have been loyal members of the library programs at the Ada Library for almost a decade. Each year we wait, with anticipation, for the annual summer reading program to begin with the inclusion of weekly programming, book challenges and numerous activities for children of all ages and adults.

In March of 2020, a time most of us will remember as the month the world launched into a global pandemic, I began my first term with the honor of becoming a Board Member for the Ada Public Library.
