Monday Morning Coffee: Columbus Grove, Ohio

Columbus Grove, settled by folks from Columbus, Ohio,  is a village in Putnam County, Ohio.  The population in July 2017 was 2060.  This is a decrease of some 5% from the 2200 in 2000.

As a note of interest, for the population of 25 years and over, 96% possess a high school or higher education.  

Even though the population is decreasing, the education level remains high. 

   Columbus Grove, Ohio.

The downtown area is very neat, tidy and well cared for.

Yes, It's Back

In yesterday's post the street light displayed only the Ada banner. Walk a short distance along the same street and along with the banner is the flag. 

          Ada, Ohio.

The folks responsible for the earlier lamppost evidently didn't get the memo.

Monday Morning Coffee: Ada

Will be working from temporary location as remodeling and updating of the headquarters is continuing.  Have been assured that it should be finished by end of the week.

In early September managed a journey to the village of Ada, Ohio.

Along with tradition architecture, the usual Midwest showing the flag along a main street has been replaced by an Ada banner.
