Opening in October! A cat cafe, home to 10-15 cats that are available for adoption, or just to relax with and enjoy a coffee and treat!

Many thanks to Vice-Chairman of the Board, Jimmy Johnson for donating this cool sign to enhance the Chamber Offices. 

The Orion Township Where Living is a Vacation sign is now a piece of history! The original hand carved signs from 1995 stood 8 feet tall and were seen along the road upon entry into Orion. The township recently replaced them with new signage, however this replica is now available for all Orion history enthusiasts! 

Contact Jimmy Johnson at Graphic Takeover for more information.
