Donation supports Ada Streetscape
ONU’s Office of Residence Life had donated $1,000 to the Ada Streetscape Project Fund. The money will be used for street light holiday decorations on Main Street.
In addition the Office of Residence Life has donated $500 to the Ada Area Chamber of Commerce to assist in decorating for a new holiday festival "Merry on Main." Justin F. Courtney, director of residence life, and other Chamber committee members, brainstormed a holiday festival to draw participants from Hardin and Allen counties. Suggestions included bringing Santa up to the depot for photos with children, carolers along the sidewalks, horse and wagon rides, luminaries along the sidewalks in the park, store window decorations and possibly extended business hours for the festival. Merry on Main will take place at the Depot on Main Street in place of Winter Wonderland, and will serve as a potential fundraiser as well community event.
