Food Truck Festival Filled The Fairgrounds On Friday

May 272016

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.

Fundraiser Will Benefit Orange K9 Program

Juniorettes2The Orange Juniorettes is hosting a fundraiser/Give Back Night at On The Border, 220 Indian River Road, Orange on Tuesday, Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The Juniorettes is a group of young girls who give back to the community in a number of ways. Recently, they did a beautification project at the Orange Police Department, planting seasonal flowers, decorative grasses and shrubs around the flag pole to the left of the main entrance.
The girls hope to raise $1,500 to go towards the needs of the Orange Police K9s, Loki and Trent.
For every flyer submitted between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. on Feb. 9, On The Border will donate 10% of food and beverage sales (both eat-in and take out).
Asst. Police Chief Anthony Cuozzo said the Juniorettes have given a lot of time and effort to the Police Department in the past couple of years by totally refurbishing the flag pole area and keeping it up with each passing season.
“The men and women of the department and visitors really appreciate the curb appeal that the Juniorettes have created and we look forward to the upcoming fundraiser, too,” he said.
The Orange K-9 program is unfunded except for the stipend the officers receive. The money would go toward any of a number of needs for the two dogs, a bite sleeve for Loki, new leads and training materials for Trent, perhaps a vest or two.
“Please share this with all your friends and family.  The more people we have attending this event means the more donation we will receive,” said Karen Iassogna, one of the Juniorettes’ advisors.
