Due to COVID-19, the Ortonville City Council has made the tough decision of canceling the Summer Rec program this summer, however, we have activity kits available to help keep your kids active this summer. The kits are free for ages 5-12 with limited quantities. Kits contain a flying disc, a bubble wand, a jump rope, chalk, and a kite. With this kit are two activity pages with ideas to keep kids active. Turn in these pages to the city to get a prize! – UPDATE: The kits have been distributed – thank you to all who stopped by and pick them up!
