The Orchard Lake Ambassadors is a membership of alumni and friends who support the Ambassadors Endowment Fund. Money raised from yearly and lifetime memberships is contributed to the fund and only the interest is distributed to special projects for the Orchard Lake Schools. Past projects have included contributions toward computers for the Seminary, roof work on many buildings throughout the campus, updated security on campus, visiting team bleachers, repairs to the Seminary steps and many other needed projects over the years. Each year, the Ambassadors are invited to attend the Ambassadors Ball. This year will be the 43rd annual event and the occasion will be celebrated at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Michigan in April, 2016.
