You could win this for just $2 ticket.

Orange Live will be raffling off a lighted 16″ “Gingerbread Lighthouse” on a 16 X 20″ base for $2 per ticket. All proceeds will go to the Orange Food Bank.

The Lighthouse, which was made during a 26-hour period from an original design, received rave reviews at the Orange Holiday Festival and would attract attention wherever it goes on display.

It can be shellacked and preserved for the future.

We are happy to be able to offer this piece to the Orange Community and hope you will help us raise a sizeable contribution to the Orange Community Services Food Bank.

The Lighthouse will be on display at Maplewood of Orange during its Festival of Lights tonight from 4-7:30 p.m. and Wednesday evening at Material Girls Boutique for its Holiday Girl’s Night Out from 5-8:30 p.m.

The drawing will take place on December 12.

If any other local businesses would like to display the Lighthouse to assist in ticket sales, please call Terri at 203-506-1747.

NOTE: Although constructed completely of edible items, we suggest that the Lighthouse be used for display purposes only. The recipe used is for a Structural Gingerbread, which makes it very strong – like plywood – and tasteless. The Royal Frosting is probably stronger than Gorilla Glue and contains raw egg whites.

Amity Daisy Troop 60274 brought donations to the Orange Food Bank at High Plains Community Center this week.

It’s wonderful that such young children already have learned about charitable giving. They are well on their way to a great way of life.

Thank you, girls, for your kindness and generosity. I know it is greatly appreciated.

Thank You For Your Generosity!

One small corner of the former probate office after the food was delivered.

Last weekend the US Postal Service held its annual spring food drive, and Orange residents responded in a big way.

Residents received a postcard in the mail at the beginning of the week asking that they leave a bag of non-perishable food items that would go to the local food bank, near their mailbox on Saturday and the response was tremendous.

The locally collected food was transported directly to the High Plains Community Center and placed in the former probate office until it can be sorted and stored in the Community Services Food Closet.

Community Services Director Joan Cretella said, “A big thank you goes out to the postal workers and everyone that so generously donated to the food bank.”

The amount of food they received will definitely help those in need in the town of Orange.

Even though the food closet will be well stocked after the postal drive, it’s important to remember that Community Services graciously accepts donations throughout the year, not just during this drive or at the holidays.

“Thank You so much,” Cretella said.
