Christmas in the Village

December 07, 2011

Dear Editor,

More than one thousand people attended Christmas in the Village this past Saturday, starting with the first ever Jingle Bell run, where close to 50 people raced through town. It was great to see antique fire trucks and tractors join in the parade this year, too! For its’ second year, the Taste of Ortonville fed more than 150 people. The Fire Hall was filled shoppers, so the vendors were happy and the kid’s craft tables were occupied all day long. While they waited in line to see Santa and Mrs. Claus, kids and their parents enjoyed seeing a live reindeer and alpacas outside the Old Town Hall, while Sacred Grounds served coffee and hot-chocolate on the porch. The day finished off with caroling and the lighting of the Christmas tree by Village President, Wayne Wills and Village Manager, John Lyons.

Thanks to all of its’ sponsors, volunteers and supporters, Ortonville’s Christmas in the Village was a smashing success!
