Orient is planning a big welcome for a 125th anniversary of the founding of the town. Recently a good portion of the town population (63, according to the 2010 Census) gathered for this photo and to invite everyone to “Come Join Us” Friday through Sunday, July 6-7-8, for the Orient Quaquicentennial Celebration.

Activities begin with an all-school reunion on Friday. Go to for a tentative schedule for the rest of the celebration, plus a number of photos of the town of Orient. Here’s one example:
