On Sunday the Orange Lions Club hosted its 26th annual Thanksgiving Feast welcoming the town’s seniors and others who may not have family with whom to share the holiday.
The High Plains Community Center gym was full, with a record crowd of about 150 guests this year (that’s 20-30 more than in past years for whatever reason). The Lions were ready for them with 16 beautiful roasted turkeys (perfectly moist and tender); trays of sweet potatoes and stuffing; dozens of festive cookies and cupcakes from Julia’s Bakery; dozens of pies and lots of love.
The entertainment they lined up for the event ran non-stop throughout the meal. First, a talented young pianist, then the Orange Senior Choir, followed by a guitarist.
The Lions and the community volunteers were happy to provide everyone with a lovely, relaxing afternoon with a nutritious meal and entertainment.
They will be back again in 2015 for the 27th annual Thanksgiving Dinner.
The New Haven & Derby Model Railroad Club, Inc., hosted its 22nd Annual Model Train Show at the High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road, today, Sunday, Oct. 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The club members enjoyed a steady flow of visitors who flocked to the model train set-ups in the meeting rooms, the kitchen was busy at lunch time and vendors seemed happy with the amount of business they received.
The Train Show is one of the favorite events of the year for young and old.
The workshop shall begin with a brief discussion and demonstration of proper vocal technique, followed by a group warm-up, and perhaps even a group song. Interested participants should prepare a song or audition piece of moderate length, and have either the sheet music or a track available.
There also is the option of singing a capella. There are no age-limits or experience levels required, as it is NOT a singing contest or talent competition. Some attendees may simply wish to “audit” and observe the class — no one is forced to get up and sing!
Emphasis will be on musicality, diction, vocalism, and performance values. All comments and critiques are given in a forthright, supportive, and constructive fashion, and questions are most welcome.
Interested participants should contact [email protected].
Call today to make an appointment at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit WWW.redcrossblood.org.
“Please support our community, with the gift of life,” said Paul Leahy of the Red Cross. “Every donation can save up to 3 lives. Every day someone somewhere needs blood. Without dedicated donors like you serving as a vital link between the blood supply and those who need blood, the Red Cross could not carry out its lifesaving mission.”
In order to donate you must be healthy — feel well and be able to perform normal activities.
If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, healthy also means that you are being treated and the condition is under control.
You must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds.
The Red Cross continually run blood drives..as the need is constant throughout the year. They do declare emergency blood needs around the holidays due to lack of donor flow.
Red blood has a shelf life of 42 days and platelets only 7 days.
