Yesterday we told you about the Lions Club’s gift of a new three-tiered water fountain on the Orange Fairgrounds, well, today, we have another surprise for you.

Just in time for the Fourth of July weekend, the all-volunteer Orange Recycling Committee was delighted to take delivery today of 60, count them – 60 new bins for the Orange Fairgrounds. There are 30 Blue bins for recyclables and 30 black ones (they were supposed to be brown) for trash disposal.

Committee Chairman Mitch Goldblatt said they were able to purchase the bins with grant money they’d received.

“I am so happy that they will be on and around the fairgrounds for the Fourth of July concert and fireworks, which is the biggest, most popular single-day event in town,” he said. “The two different colors will help eliminate the confusion that people have had in the past, as to which barrel or container is for recycling and which is for trash.”

NOTE: As a frequent walker at the fairgrounds, I believe these new bins will be a welcome addition to the landscape. Both sturdy trash and recycling bins are needed to help keep the grounds clean and to encourage recycling rather than throwing many items in the garbage.

Thank you to the Orange Recycling Committee for your forward thinking and congratulations on getting them on time for the big holiday weekend.

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.

It’s Flag Day – Honor the Red, White and Blue Today

Today is Flag Day.

Every year the town of Orange celebrates Old Glory with a ceremony hosted by the American Legion, but with the Orange Expo going on and the Amity Graduation pulling people from town this year, for the first time in … well forever, there will be NO Flag Day ceremony in Orange.

This is actually sad, at a time in our country when we need to come together as Americans.

If you have small children, please take a moment to chat with them about the flag and explain its importance to them.

If you have a flag fly it proudly today.

It’s 11:45 p.m. and the thunderstorms have arrived.

Lightning is flashing brightly outside and the thunder is rattling the walls.

We were warned about these storms all day long and now they’re here.

Be prepared for possible power outages, as these storms have been said to be quite powerful, knocking down trees and causing a lot of other damage.

Last weekend, hundreds of people gathered at the Orange Fairgrounds for the 2017 BOW Relay For Life.

A majority of the participants were Amity High School students who walked side by side with adult cancer survivors and caregivers.

The tally posted on the Cancer Society website is $63,881.24 raised to help fight cancer, but the total amount generally rises in the weeks following the end of the event.

The Relay chairmen thank everyone for their efforts and continued support of this worthwhile cause.

We’ve posted photos from the survivor’s walk and luminaria ceremony. Here are some more of the teams taking the first lap.
