The Orange Arts and Cultural Council and Orange Community Services have partnered together to bring a Kindness Rock Garden to town.

Every Friday in May groups of people got together to paint rocks with inspirational sayings for the garden.

The creativity expanded to the community during last week’s Orange Expo, when visitors were invited to paint rocks for inclusion in the garden.

This Wednesday, June 21 at 1 p.m. the OACC and Community Services will host a ribbon cutting for the Kindness Rock Garden at High Plains Community Center near the front cafeteria doors.

All are welcome to attend.

This male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was found in the vicinity of Orange Center Road and Old Tavern Road around 7 a.m. on Wednesday, June 14.

He was wearing a red collar with an electric fence monitor. No other identification.

The Good Samaritan called the Milford/Orange Animal Control and he was taken into their possession.

The good news is that he has since been reunited with his owner.

Remember, the Independence Day holiday is coming and most pets run away around that time than any other time of year because they are frightened by the loud firecrackers and fireworks that people set off everywhere.

Please prepare ahead of time and find something that will help keep your pet calm and comfortable during the next few weeks.

Andy is a popular guy, always smiling and showing a positive attitude on and off the field, and the boy has skills!

Congratulations Andy Hague, this year’s SCC Ed Marocco Most Outstanding Player Award Winner. And thank you for an exciting regular season.
