In case of inclement weather, a “rain or snow date” has been set for Saturday, April 20 at High Plains Community Center, with the same schedule of events as on April 13.
The Easter Bunny will arrive at 12:30 PM, one half-hour (30 minutes) before the start of the Easter Egg Hunt itself.
There will be face painting for the children, and hot coffee for the adults.
The Easter Egg Hunt is divided into four (4) age groups. This allows each child to have an equal opportunity to collect the thousands of chocolate eggs which the Lions Club will have to distribute.
The four age groups are (1) Pre School through Kindergarten; (2) First Grade and Second Grade; (3) Third Grade and Fourth Grade; (4) Fifth Grade and Sixth Grade.
Thousands of chocolate eggs will be distributed during the hunt. Prizes will be awarded to children in all age categories for finding specially marked eggs.
An adult should accompany all participating children. Each child should have a bag or basket to collect their eggs. Parents may wish to bring a camera for a picture of their child with the Easter Bunny. Please note that parking for this event should be on paved parking areas only.
Nick Bencivengo is the Chairman of this year’s event. Anyone who wishes to make a donation to this event is asked to contact Nick at 203-901-9062. All donors will be acknowledged for their generosity at the Easter Egg Hunt.
The annual Easter Egg Hunt is but one of many community events and activities sponsored by the Orange Lions Club each year. Among the other annual events are the Community Thanksgiving Dinner, the Senior Pizza Party, a Comedy Night fundraiser, eye screenings for pre-schoolers, and an annual Wine Tasting fundraiser. In addition, the Orange Lions make contributions to many community organizations; and for many years, the Lions have run a Community Grants Program for local groups who are seeking funds for a special reason. In particular, the Orange Lions Club has made many gifts to the Case Memorial Library over the years for the purchase of large print books and audio tapes for the sight impaired and the general
public. The Orange Lions also fund scholarships each year for students graduating from Amity High School.

Race Brook School students held a very successful drive in March to show their care and support for the children at the Hall Early Learning Center, part of the Hall Neighborhood House in the East Side of Bridgeport. Hall’s Early Learning Center provides services to over 270 preschool-age children through enriching, hands-on curriculum.
Race Brook School’s Student Council, directed by third-grade teacher Janet Greenspan, worked tirelessly to collect hundreds of new or nearly new books, educational games, puzzles, and craft supplies for the children at the center.
Fifth-grader Remmy C. really enjoyed contributing to the success of the drive. “I’m happy I was able to help make the flyer for collecting donations. I felt terrific knowing I was helping younger children.”
The Hall Early Learning Center is affiliated with and supported by the Jamie A. Hulley Foundation. The foundation has a special place in the hearts of the students and staff of Race Brook School in Orange. Jamie attended the school from
1987 to 1993. Throughout her young life, Jamie was very involved in the arts. Jamie’s Fund helps to provide the children at the center with enriching experiences in literature, art, music, and theatre. Race Brook students hope their donations to the center will provide hours of educational and creative
enjoyment for the children.
Third-grader Ashlie A. emphatically stated, “I feel lucky I was able to help younger kids. Being on Student Council, I had the chance to collect toys, books, and art supplies to put smiles on many children’s faces at the center.”
Fellow classmate Sophie C. added, “I think it was important for me to take part in making the flyer and inform the school about the drive. The Jamie A. Hulley organization gives our school many grants to help us run fun enrichment programs. This is our way of giving back.”
Yesterday (Saturday, April 7) The Amity Spartans Baseball team was waiting to play a game against Ridgefield at Governor Park when some “Einstein” came up with a solution to dry the muddy field.
Orange Live Posted the information on its Twitter Page around 3 p.m.
Here is a notice released by the town of Ridgefield on its Facebook Page later in the evening.
There has been an incident in town that we want to make citizens aware of. An RHS baseball game at Governor Park was delayed due to weather conditions on the field this morning.
A poor decision was made (and being looked into by the RPD) to “dry the field quicker” and 24 gallons of gasoline was poured and set on fire.
Thanks to the RFD, Peter Hill the Director of Public Works, DEEP, the RPD, and our Certified Spill Response Team for their incredible help. No one was injured and no one is in danger. The plan is to excavate the infield, place dirt in a safe container, and add fresh, clean soil to the field.
The game was postponed until 3:45 p.m. and both teams were bussed to Woodbridge where they played at Amity High School.
