Odin Renewal & Development Council
The Odin Renewal/Development Council (ORDC) was formed in 2002. The
Council consists of a group of Odin residents that meet twice 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
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 will house a
senior citizen center and banquet hall.
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.

Uhls, Bruce Hubbell, Dave Frimel, Cheryl Soulon. You May contact
