There was a record crowd of more than 180 guests, not including the Lions members and Boy Scouts from Troop 925 who were there to help.

As always Selectman Mitch Goldblatt assisted in serving with a smile and Bob Mel volunteered his time and talent to entertain everyone in attendance.

Lions Harold Cavallaro and Ann Carollo co-chaired the event.

 

The Lions were pleased to have the opportunity to provide this special event to the community.

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 26th 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.

Many town officials volunteer along with n the Lions to make this event a success. Along with a delicious dinner the seniors are treated to some of the finest entertainment.   The Tappers have performed in the past, local school choral groups have sung, Members of the Lions Club along with their children have played beautiful music on the piano to entertain their guests.

This is a well established tradition and one the Lions intend to continue indefinitely.

In order to have enough food for everyone, the Lions asked that anyone wanting to attend  register with Orange Community Services by Friday, Nov. 28. If you don’t make it this year, don’t worry, the Lions will be back with the 27th annual dinner next November.
