Community Events

Luminaries in the Village.

Many thanks to the wonderful volunteers of Boy Scout Troop 139 who helped with the distribution of the luminaries Christmas Eve morning insuring that the village was bright that evening. Additionally, we had a great turnout of 20 participants two days earlier for the assembling of the luminaries. Our DPW department reported that every candle was lit so with the assistance of residents, business owners, and concerned individuals who took the time to light every luminary this long standing tradition in Ortonville was a great success in 2016. Once again, thank you everyone for your help. Wishing you and your families a prosperous and healthy New Year.
