A website about Orting that anyone can edit

I want to make a page about

Welcome to a very unusual town!   At the bottom of a giant volcano, covered with prehistoric glaciers, lives a logging town that never changed.  This is our story.

You're invited to share what you know about our town with yourselves, and even the whole world -- especially the little, enjoyable things of life here!  Look at this site as our "Town Square," where citizen involvement is deepened and common folks are king!

Anyone can edit this website -- no fancy pants approval necessary.  Just click Edit at the top of any page and jump in.  It looks intimidating, but it’s simple.   Can't find a page on something?  Make one!  The power is at your fingertips.  Read our Guide to get started, how LocalWiki started, or just browse around and enjoy.  

Note:  This entire site is maintained and written by YOU.  There is no city affiliation to anything here, though City Councils around the world have praised such grass-root efforts:  here  and  here
