The fountain was the idea of Lion Ken Lenz, who spoke at the dedication, first about the history of the Lions Club International, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and then addressing the local Lions contributions to the community.
Selectman Mitch Goldblatt also addressed the Lions in attendance, thanking them for their donation to the town.
Although it was well publicized, only two non-Lions attended the dedication, which is a shame. But people utilizing the walking track did receive Lions Club water bottles that they could fill from the fountain for many years to come.
Enjoy this fountain, everyone. Think about the Lions Club when you fill your water bottles during the Independence Day Concert and Fireworks, or “water” your dog during a walk.
The Lions is one club that really does a lot for the community, don’t forget to say “Thank You” when you see one of them around town.
For just $10 per person, you will receive 2 pancakes, 2 eggs, bacon, and coffee or tea.
Seating times are 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 7 p.m.
Call 203-795-4867 for tickets.
All proceeds benefit the Lions projects to improve the local community.
Breakfast for dinner…what can be better?

Members of the Orange Lions Club recently completed eye screenings for nearly 200 children at Mary L. Tracy School using state of the art camera equipment, and working with Orange School Nursing Director Amy Wargo,
The SCOPE PediaVisionScreener is able to identify vision issues in children aged 2 – 6. By simply taking a picture of a child’s eye in low light from a four foot distance, the Vision Screener measures visual acuity (near – or – far sightedness, “lazy eye,” astigmatism, detached retina, corneal deformity and other potentially serious eye issues. If treated by an eye doctor, these issues can be corrected or cured early to keep vision problems from interfering with education.
In October, the Orange Lions completed eye screenings at several local pre-schools.
The Orange Lions Club began the tradition of a Thanksgiving Dinner for seniors.
The Lions extended this invitation to all Orange Residents on the Sunday after Thanksgiving in 1989. It met with some resistance in the beginning but the Club prevailed and this will be their 28th dinner.
The town of Orange graciously allows the Lions to use their kitchen facilities at High Plains Community Center. To see the gym transformed into a decorated dining room with many of their guests enjoying themselves is a sight to behold. This has become one of the highlights of the holiday season. While it requires volunteers and a good amount of effort, the Lions truly enjoy cooking together and serving this meal. It is one of their favorite undertakings.
In order to have enough food for everyone, the Lions asked that anyone wanting to attend register with Orange Community Services the week prior to the event. If you don’t make it this year, don’t worry, the Lions will be back with the 29th annual dinner next November.
Reservations are necessary.
