EARS is a nonprofit, all-volunteer, organization, designed for rapid-response to emergencies affecting animals and their owners. The team is based in Bethany, Connecticut, but responds to incidents throughout the state. With many team members locally-based, EARS has been very active in the Orange community, hosting events, presentations, and workshops for pet owners, as well taking part in town activities like the Orange Expo. One aspect that makes EARS such a unique team is their experience and training with all types of animals as well as emergency response situations. Team members are required to complete certified courses through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) which provide the knowledge needed to conduct animal response work side-by-side with local emergency services. Additionally EARS team members are certified in special “Technical Animal Rescue” aspects, which includes work with large animals such as horses, as well as animals needing specialized response knowledge.

The first fundraising event of the year has begun. With the PTSO, we are selling KidStuff Coupon Savings Books. Homeroom teachers have passed out a Ziploc bag containing KidStuff books and directions, for each student to bring home. We are asking students to sell at least two books. The books sell for $25.00 and we make a 50% profit on each book.
If a student is enrolled in the band, strings or choir, the first book sold will go to the PTSO and the second book’s profit will go to the music department to be allocated towards the individual student’s cost of his or her spring trip.
This is one of the largest fundraisers of the year and we need your support.
The fundraiser will run from Sept. 15 to Sept. 26.
That was back in 2010.

Tonight, Dr. K’s Motown Review headlines the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation’s twelfth annual Evening for the Arts Gala Benefit at Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. The performance begins at 7 p.m.
Revisiting the Motown Sound and reprising one of modern music’s golden eras, Dr. K’s Motown Review headlines the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation’s twelfth annual Evening for the Arts Gala Benefit on Saturday, Sept. 6, at Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. The performance begins at 7 p.m. and is preceded by an Evening for the Arts reception at 6 p.m., which includes complimentary wine and beer, light hors d’oeuvres and a Silent Auction.
This year’s pre-concert Silent Auction features over 150 items including a vacation getaway, a sunrise hot air balloon ride, vintage, handcrafted & designer items, baskets of treats, theater and sports tickets including Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tickets, Hollywood and sport memorabilia, and special gifts from the cast of the Broadway Musical “Motown,” the New York Giants, the Boston Red Sox, and Derek Jeter’s Turn2Foundation. Tickets are $40 in advance or $45 at the door and may be purchased through the Quick Center Box office.
Dr. K’s Motown Revue is led by veteran bassist, Paul Korman, whose musical quest was to put together the ultimate Motown tribute band. With Dr. K’s Motown Revue he succeeds in presenting an outstanding array of seasoned musicians and singers taking audiences on a very realistic journey back to the Motown era, when the songs emanating from Motown Records in Detroit filled the radio airwaves. The combination of powerhouse singers and precise musicianship brings an authentic musical punch to the stage, as Dr. K’s Motown Revue present an evening of classic Motown songs – hit after hit after hit – reprised in real time.
According to Judy Primavera, foundation co-founder and president, “It is going to be a night to remember. Not only will Dr. K’s Motown Revue will have the audience dancing in the aisles but our Gala will also showcase some of our own local talent – the young people who are involved in the foundation’s programs. Jared Brown, Artist Director of Square Foot Theatre in Wallingford is Masters of Ceremonies and Rob and Andrea Kennedy, Directors of Amity Creative Theatre, will be wielding the auctioneer’s gavel.”
The Evening for the Arts Gala benefits the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the educational enrichment and professional development of young artists and early career professionals, and created in the memory of Orange, CT, resident Jamie Alaine Hulley. All proceeds from the Gala go to support the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation, which sponsors scholarships, educational programs and grants in the arts throughout Connecticut, especially in the greater New Haven and Fairfield counties.
The foundation’s presence has its greatest impact in the Orange & Amity schools providing over $20,000 annually in college scholarships, artist in residence programs, and program sponsorship in theater, studio art, music, and film at Amity High School. In fact, since the foundation’s inception in 2002, the foundation has given away over $500,000 in scholarships and educational programs benefiting many thousands of young people and early career professionals.
The foundation provides educational programs to local public and parochial schools to bring professional artists, musicians, dancers, actors, and authors into the classroom to enhance the traditional curriculum through the arts. Thus far, schools in Ansonia, Bethany, Bridgeport, Derby, East Haven, Fairfield, Hartford, Orange, Manchester, New Haven, North Haven, Stratford, West Haven, Willimantic, and Woodbridge have benefited from the foundation’s educational programs.
The foundation also awards grants to local non-profits such as the Amity Teen Center, the New England Ballet Company for a 20-week school-readiness-through-dance program for Bridgeport preschoolers, the Milford Boys & Girls Club for an after school art program, and the Square Foot Theatre in Wallingford’s youth and adult theater companies. The foundation provides college scholarships in Theatre and in Studio Art as well as scholarships to children for music lessons and summer theater camp. For information on the Jamie A.
