The Orange Senior Center presents the works of area seniors (55 and older) at the Case Memorial Library throughout the month of May.

The Senior Art Show opened on Thursday, May 4, and most of the artists were on hand for the meet and greet.

Dennis Marsh and Alice DiNicola greeted guests, answered questions and kept the refreshment table full, making the opening night a pleasant experience for everyone.

If you are in the library this month, go up to the second floor and browse the gallery.

Several 3-D pieces by Amity High School seniors are included in the show.

Featured artists include: Barbara Scopp; Rachel Beaulieu; Rita Kelly; Lana Ho; Christine Barmmer; Audrey Galer; Betty Sword; Joan Stenner; Richard Zelladonis; Molly Dinneen; Mukul Biswajit Mukherjee; Carlyne Labrecque; Sonya Casey; Andrew Perfetto; Stephanie Martucci; Pauli Zambarano; Carole Selmont; Arara Cohen; Millie Farrell; Mary Ann Verinis; and Terri Miles.

Fear Not, Says One Resident, The Library Is Fine

 Around Town, Case Memorial Library, Home, Latest News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Fear Not, Says One Resident, The Library Is Fine
Apr 292017
 

This week I posted a press release from our regular source at the Case Memorial Library stating that the library would be closed on Saturdays due to budget cuts.

This has happened in the past and many residents were upset with the news and expressed their concerns on our Facebook page

One resident, though, said that we got it wrong — no phone call or e-mail explaining why the story was inaccurate, just “you’re wrong.”

After some prying, she said that a new decision has been made and that the Library Commission never approved the release. (She has since deleted her comments from the FB page). The story was up for 3 days yet I haven’t heard any complaints or received a corrected press release from anyone in authority at the library.

I will be away today when the library is open and I won’t be able to call. But I encourage someone to contact me at orangectlive01@gmail.com so I can pass on the correct information. I know many people will be relieved if the library hours aren’t affected.
