Tonight’s full moon (Aug. 15) is known as the “Sturgeon Moon,” a name which is said to most likely derive from both colonists and Algonquin-speaking tribes in northeastern North America.

If you have a chance before you go to bed take a peek outside. It really is quite lovely.

Aug 142019

The Orange Volunteer Fire Department will unveil its newest apparatus, Quint-32, at a “wetdown” and cornhole tournament at noon this Saturday.
The new truck replaces an older vehicle that has since been sold. It is called a Quint because it performs a variety of functions. Like most fire engines, it is a powerful pumper and brings 500 gallons of water with it. In addition, it has a 75-foot aerial ladder and several ground ladders. It also has equipment on board that allows firefighters staffing the truck to perform a variety of tasks.
The OVFD received the truck earlier this month and firefighters are now being trained to use it.
The firefighters will officially unveil this fire truck at a wetdown and cornhole tournament this Saturday,  Aug. 17, at the Orange Volunteer Fire Dept. Station 2, 355 Boston Post Road kicking off at noon.

The cornhole tournament is open to residents of Orange, West Haven, and Milford as well
as teams of firefighters. The cost to enter is $10 and prizes will be awarded to the winners. For
more information about the cornhole tournament or to register, send an e-mail to ovfdq32@gmail.com.

Hey, Orange Live, Where Are The Bus Routes?

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News  Comments Off on Hey, Orange Live, Where Are The Bus Routes?
Aug 122019

As you can imagine, with children still being registered and the Bus Company coordinating with the schools, this is a very hectic time of year.

The bus routes cannot be drawn up until every child is accounted for because making changes is a waste of energy and making last-minute changes can only lead to mistakes.

The final routes could be available as soon as this week. The format in which they released is ok, but not the most user-friendly and we usually spend a lot of time re-formatting them for Orange Live readers.

We will post easy to follow copies of your children’s bus routes as soon as possible and in plenty of time for you to prepare for the school year. So hold on just a little bit longer, we won’t let you down.
