“Our goals are to create an atmosphere supporting community development and to promote the town of Orwigsburg as a premier business, professional, education and lifestyle destination for all.”

“The OCRC (our 501(c)3 non-profit affiliate) exists to create and maintain a sustainable, inviting, accessible, and walkable community. We desire to attract families and businesses that thrive in a Live, Work, and Play environment.”
With OBPA and OCRC working together, they have proudly developed and organized annual events in the town that encourages attendance of local and surrounding community members to aid in the prosperity of local businesses. These events include:
· Farm to Square-Where spirits, farmers, and families meet
· Heritage Day- started in 1991 as a way to celebrate the towns heritage and comradery
· Festival of Lights- the annual tree lighting ceremony with lamplighter, carols and activities
In addition to the annual events, the organization also works to provide updates and provisions to the borough including new trash and recycling containers placed strategically throughout the square to minimize littering and encourage recycling efforts and updating the community parking lot sign, to be names the OBPA Community lot.
