IMG_0437The third annual Race Brook School Food Truck Festival drew a huge crowd to the Orange Fairgrounds Friday night.

Everyone seemed to have their own strategy as to how they would choose their dinner.

Many knew exactly what they were looking for and made a bee line for the Fish, Grilled Cheese or Falafel, while others looked for familiar faces like Dave from Reno’s or Russ at Fire Dog. Although most had no plan at all and just wandered until they found something that suddenly appealed to their taste buds.

The band Velocity sounded great as it provided background music.

Many vendors of non-food items filled in the center of the field. One thing is for certain this event has grown in three years, both in size and popularity.

One of the new craft vendors is Hipponotic Candles offering hand-poured candles with only the finest natural ingredients. Made with vegan soybean wax, they burn clean, with almost no residue.

Super Fun Inflatables will be set up to keep the children entertained.

This is going to be another wonderful Food Truck Festival. Mark your Calendars and don’t make any plans for dinner that night!

Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 11.05.47 AMWTNH-8 Reported some very sad news this morning:

Middlebury Police say one person was killed in a car accident there Tuesday morning.

Police got a call at 9:14 a.m. for a car that had hit a tree on the side of the road near the intersection of South Street and Long Meadow Road. 

When police got there they pulled Robert Graham, 45, of Orange from the car. He was unresponsive.  Emergency crews administered CPR. He was taken to Waterbury Hospital and pronounced dead.

A family friend contacted Orange Live this morning requesting help for his wife and children.

The text from a new GO FUND ME page is as follows:

The 8th grade Amity Force travel basketball team is asking for your help.   Rob Graham, Tessa’s dad, passed unexpectedly today.   Our hearts and prayers are with all of them at this time.

As some of you know, and some may not know, they were in the  middle of moving to Pennsylvania where Tara’s family is from.   Their house is on the market and were hoping to make the transition after the school year ended.

Instead of sending flowers or a fruit basket, we thought it would be most helpful if we could help them defray any costs of their move or any expenses that may suddenly arise.

We thank you for any support and help that you may be able to provide.
