Ontario Community Club
The Ontario Community Club meets the first Monday of every month at the Ontario Fire Station. We plan the community events such as the Easter egg hunt, the Ontario 4th of July celebration, the Halloween party, the Old Fashioned Christmas celebration, and more. Any one who wants to make Ontario a great place to live is welcome to join us.

Economic Development Committee
The Ontario Economic Development Committee meets on the 3rd Monday of the month at 5:00pm at the Village Office.  Anyone is welcome to attend these meetings. The purpose of the  committee is to work with the community to develop a vision and action plan for the future of Ontario.  We have been working with representatives from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., Vernon Economic Development Assoc., and the Mississippi River Regional Planning Commission. We have done surveys and talked with people in our “community conversations” that were held at the   Ontario Public Library and the Village Office.  These conversations will be ongoing and we always welcome your input. From this information, we have developed goals and priorities that we can work on in the next couple years.  Watch for more information in these newsletters and the County Line  as we proceed with some of these improvements.  We will need your help and look forward to forming some groups of people  interested in watching our community grow and improve. You can contact the committee through the Chairperson, Sue Blanchard (phone: (262)-490-1642 and email You can also attend a meeting or talk with our Librarian, April Arndt, at the Ontario Public Library.
