2017 Memorial Day

Update:  Unfortunately we were unable to video all of the Memorial Day programs that were held in Big Stone County.  The video below is from the Ortonville Program. Representative Jeff Backer attended the Memorial Highway Dedication for Staff Sergeant Kevin Witte and shared a few pictures from the event on his Facebook Page:    

MNbump Fall Colors

Big Stone Lake to around Big Stone County, MNbump is beautiful this time of year.  We had a Facebook follower that commented on a post that had a few fall pictures from an afternoon drive (shown below) that she enjoyed seeing photos from the area – originally from Ortonville she now lives out-of-state – and that she remembered the umbrella of trees over the Lake Road (Hwy 7).  So we took a drive and video footage so that she could see the Lake Road’s fall colors (the video is below the pictures – the first 4 minutes is the Lake Road drive – we then also took a trip down Ortonville’s Main Street, up to our Hospital and past our expanding senior housing facility – located on our 18-hole golf course – Fairway View Communities which is almost complete).   Video – first 4 minutes is a drive down the Lake Road then through downtown Ortonville and by the hospital & clinic and then Fairway View Communities (senior housing complex on our golf course)

Two great reasons to vacation in Ortonville on the MNbump!

Artie of Artie’s Bait & Tackle in Ortonville said it well when he used this photo in one of his Facebook posts “Here are two great reasons to vacation in Ortonville, Mn!  A 26 mile long lake full of great fishing and a beautiful 18 hole golf Course!” MNbump has two great courses: Link to the Ortonville Golf Course Link to more information on the Graceville Golf Course
