Buy Your Raffle Tickets!

For as far back as longtime residents can remember, the Orange Volunteer Fire Department has mailed raffle ticket booklets to every home in town  a couple of months before the  annual Carnival.

The event which serves as the department’s major fundraiser, begins on July 31 and runs through Aug. 3

The reason you haven’t received your tickets yet is (in short) because the Postal Service said “no.” Something about regulations.

The direct mail tickets were a main source of revenue over the years and the fire department is worried that ticket sales will be low because of the Postal Service’s decision.

Firefighters Rich Williamson (shown) Klevis Kimca and Mark Osinski sold raffle tickets at this week's summer concert on at Orange Fairgrounds.

“We sent out a letter last month explaining this to residents,” said Fire Chief John Knight. “We’ve set up several locations for people to pick up tickets, and hope they’ll come out and buy them.”

This year’s raffle prizes

A little different than the offerings from past years. There are no trips, but the three top prizes would be more than enough to pay for just about any trip you would want to take with your family.
