Memorial Day Program in Ortonville 2019

Another amazing Memorial Day Program sponsored by the Big Stone Lake VFW Post 3964 and the VFW Auxiliary Post 3964 which was held at the Ortonville School Gymnasium. This was the first year in a very long time that I’ve been out of town for the Program – thank you to my sister, Heidi Weeding Karels, for videotaping the Program for me!  It was her first time – so through a couple of technical adjustments and seating positioning, the video does not include the complete program.  After editing and uploading the video, I sat and watched the complete video.  I had tears streaming down my face during the Memorial Day Address by Pastor Ailsa Harl (who has accepted a Chaplain appointment and I’m sure will be missed greatly by Ortonville’s Zion Lutheran Church!!)  I hope you take a few minutes to watch the complete video.  It truly provided an emotional and vivid picture of the cost that has been paid and will continue to be paid for our freedoms, here in the United States of …

Beautiful!

It really is fun to see so much happening here in Ortonville – I was going to (and will later today) write a post to update the latest… just hoping for a “go ahead” on a downtown project that I’ve been held to secrecy on for so long that it is starting to almost burst anyway…  AND, I was already thinking how awesome our business folks are here in Ortonville and throughout Big Stone County – when Kandi at the Ortonville Flower Shop stopped by with a beautiful bouquet of my FAVORITE flowers  (Gerbs! – another great thing about living in this community… the Flower Shop knowing what it is that you enjoy – like when I’m in a family group sending flowers for a funeral or such, I’ll always notice that there is a Gerber Daisy within the bouquet when she knows I was part of the order… that is the warmth I so enjoy living here!)

New Residential Lots Available in Ortonville

Today may not look like the perfect Spring day… and tomorrow won’t either!  However, the snow will clear out soon – and building season will arrive! When Ortonville Area Health Services and the City expanded Fairway view, Roy Street was extended to accommodate another access to the facility.  This made for a great opportunity to parcel out a few new residential lots along the way.  As you can see, the lots are in an excellent location – near the ballfields, golf course, and municipal swimming pool!  — And, excellent pricing at this time!  Call Shady Oak Realty (who has already taken purchase agreements for two projects in this area!) 320-839-2118 or check out their website at http://www.shadyoakrealty.com For more information about the area: City Website:  MNortonville.com Looking for a Job in the Area? -CLICK HERE!
