Odin Renewal & Development Committee
(ORDC)

The Odin Renewal/Development Committee (ORDC) was formed in 2002. The Council consists of a group of Odin residents that meet once a month for the purpose of improving conditions in our Village.

The group plans projects to improve the quality of life in our town; and raises money through various fundraisers to complete these projects. We average 6 or more community projects per year.

One of our largest projects was bringing a branch library to town. Inside the library we have developed a History Room, with most of the memorabilia being donated by two Odin historians. Our library is utilized by many local residents and the host library is pleased with its usage. In 2018 due to county tax & financial issues Odin's library was closed  .

Another of our major projects was purchasing and renovating three sections of Odin’s oldest buildings. Built in 1913, the building has housed many businesses. We are operating a resale shop in one section with proceeds going towards the renovation. Another section is used for lectures, fundraising events, senior citizen activities, etc., with future events in planning stages. The finished project would have housed a senior citizen center and banquet hall. This project was a wonderful dream of the ORDC but in reality the project proved to be very costly and some of the buildings were condemned.

We celebrated Odin’s Sesquicentennial in 2010. The successful 3-day event was coordinated by the ORDC. A 48 page History Book was published for this event, with stories being written by various Odin residents.

Other activities include craft fairs, used book sales, craft classes, 5K run, electronic recycling, dinners and annual family fun day. We have started a garden club and memorial garden. We purchased and maintain an LED sign for community events and information. We combined with other nonprofit groups for various events.
