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.

 

Orange Lions Host Annual Thanksgiving Dinner on Sunday

b9865a6ba1da777beab20c9d27f6aab6The Orange Lions will host their annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the High Plains Community Center, Sunday, Nov. 27 at 12 p.m.

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.

Bob Mel provided entertainment. Eli’s restaurant had a carving and pasta bar and Trader Joe’s treated everyone to a table with cheese, crackers and fruits.

Everyone had a lovely time and to say the event was a success is an understatement.

54th Annual Lions Easter Egg Hunt Went Off Without a Hitch

 Around Town, Charity Events, Home, Latest News  Comments Off on 54th Annual Lions Easter Egg Hunt Went Off Without a Hitch

IMG_1354Thousands of foil wrapped chocolates, hundreds of kids, free popcorn and coffee, the Easter bunny, Officer Amarone, several coveted prize eggs and a little chill in the air: that wraps up the 2016 Orange Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt that took place on Saturday on the Orange Fairgrounds.

Lion Nick Bencivengo once again served as chairman for the event, rounding up many of his fellow lions to “seed” the field with candy, make and serve popcorn, hand out Pez Dispensers after each child’s visit with the Easter Bunny, and to hand out prizes to the lucky children who found special eggs during the hunt.

Bencivengo said he watched the weather carefully during the

past week. He was pleased when early forecasts called for temps in the 50s, but worried a little as reports fluctuated between the 40 and 46. If it was raining or simply too cold, it was up to him to postpone the event if necessary.

“It’s a little cold, but the grass is dry and we’re ready to go,” he said.

This was the 54th consecutive year for the popular event. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time and we all look forward to it again next year.
