The village of Mendon is a small community consisting of about 700 people. It is a close-knit community with strong family ties.
Many wonderful events take place in this great town. In March, the Mendon Lions Club holds its annual soup supper and auction and it sponsors the annual Easter egg hunt for the children of the village.
Easter Sunday is a time of fellowship in our community. Mendon First Church of God, Mendon United Methodist Church, and the Ross Church of the Brethren all congregate for sunrise service at alternating churches with a wonderful breakfast to follow.
In May, we have our Mendon Union Alumni Reunion and Banquet to get together with old friends from school. We have a Memorial Day parade and service with the Parkway Marching Band and area veterans leading the parade to the bridge.
In the summer months you can attend a variety of ball games and cheer for your favorite team.
During Halloween, we have trick-or-treating and a costume contest. The Fire Department has a chili supper for the community to enjoy.
In November, the First Church of God holds an Election Day dinner to be enjoyed after our residents vote.
December is our annual Christmas Walk and Festival of Trees. The Christmas Committee decorates the Village Hall and invites everyone to bring in trees and decorate them with their own theme. Santa is always waiting to hear the little ones Christmas wishes.
You can visit Kozy Korner, or P & G Mini Mart if you are hungry for some good food.
We are always trying to find ways to improve the look of our aging Town Hall. This grand old building is listed on the National Register of Historical Buildings.
The village has some great park equipment for the children and park benches and picnic tables for a family outing. They also have repaired some of the older equipment, so parents can bring their children to play on the same playground that they did when they were little.
With the deconstruction of the Mendon Union School building, the land was returned to the Village. We have constructed a Community Building on this property. We have also incorporated new play ground equipment and a lovely walking path.
We look to the years ahead with high hopes of continued improvements and happy times with our friends and family. If you are out for a drive, why not visit our quaint little village? Mendon is a great place to visit and a great place to live.
