Many seventh and eighth grade students at Amity Middle School Orange submitted essays this year to shadow fifteen different local positions in the town. Pictured are the students who had the opportunity to shadow local town government officials.  The students learned about local government from Town Clerk Pat O’Sullivan and were also able to take a private tour of historical buildings in Orange Center with First Selectman Jim Zeoli. 

October has come to mean Government Day in Orange and on a bright Wednesday morning, fifteen students were able to not only learn about some early events in their town’s history including its separation from Milford but also about the founding families of the town, including the Treat and Clark families who have played pivotal roles in the Orange community. 

Students had an opportunity to introduce themselves to local government officials and explain why they wanted to participate in the day shadowing local leaders.  They were even interviewed by the OGAT channel!

The Amity Teen Center Celebrating Its 30th Anniversary Today

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News, Today's Events  Comments Off on The Amity Teen Center Celebrating Its 30th Anniversary Today
Oct 222017
 

On Sunday, October 22, from 1 to 3 p.m., the Amity Teen Center, 10 Selden St., Woodbridge, will host a celebration with music, an art show, refreshments and a ribbon cutting for its Medical Loan Closet.

“The not-for-profit business model Amity Teen Center Medical Loan Closet is a business started last year by our teens. The mission is two-fold,” said ATC President Jane Opper. “We are teaching the teens how to start and run a business, in addition to learning about the benefits of giving back to the community.”

Opper added, “We have collected (and continue to collect) gently used medical equipment such as hospital
beds, wheelchairs, walkers, etc. We then loan them out to those in the community that need
them. Unlike many other loan closets, we do not have restrictions based on the town you live
in, your age or your income. Every aspect of this business is run by the teens.”

We also will be unveiling our new logo and sign. This was designed by our Venture Crew teens. They came up with the idea, drafted the design and researched the process.

Artwork done by the Amity High School students will be on display. In addition, we have some special guest speakers coming, who as teenagers, attended the Teen Center and they will be speaking about what the Amity Teen Center meant to them.

This celebration will be followed by the Amity Teen Center’s own special Online Giving Day sponsored by the Community Foundation for Greater New Havenon Monday, October 23, from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. The Community Foundation will pay credit card and host fees on gifts up to $5,000 designated to our organization through giveGreater.org® —  which means donation dollars go further!. The funds will be used to support the Medical Loan Closet Project.

We invite everyone in the community to celebrate our 30th Anniversary with us!
