Fond Of The Elf On A Shelf? Then, Come To Town Hall

20151207_112500_resizedIf you are an Orange taxpayer, you most likely know that one of the most interesting offices at the Orange Town Hall is that of the Tax Collector.

During big holidays, and special occasions, the place of serious business takes on a festive and/or fun look after the staff is finished decorating.

Assistant Tax Collector Sally Ferko and Former Asst. Tax Collector Lynn Plaskowitz, along with Tax Collector Sandra Pierson always took the holidays seriously and that’s reflected in the festive wall to wall decorations we’ve seen over the years.

A few months ago Plaskowitz took a position at another town department, leaving Ferko and Pierson to come up with and work on a fresh idea for this month.

The theme for December is Elf On A Shelf. Pierson said Ferko is mainly responsible for putting it all together. The result is a visual potpourri of fun.

You can see the display at Town Hall, 617 Orange Center Road during office hours (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) Bring your kids, they will love it.

Oct 172013
 

Gov dayToday, Thursday, Oct. 17, fifteen (15) students from Amity Middle School in Orange participated in the school’s annual Government Day.

Students wrote an essay to the event’s coordinator, social studies teacher Jennifer Marganski, explaining why they would like to take on a particular municipal job for the  day and what they hoped to learn from the experience.

The following students assumed the following positions for the day:  First Selectman – Mounisha Anumoto, Police Chief – Chris Greco, Building Inspector – Natalia Dobbs, Fire Marshal –  Anne Marie Allen, Assessor – Madelyn Ciskowski, Park and Rec. Director – Taylor Gourdier, Librarian – Arianna Pargen, Dept. of Community Services – Alexis Halstead, Public Works –Maggie LoSchiavo, Registrar of Voters – Andreanna Adkins, Town Engineer – Erin McCormack, Town Planning and Zoning – Emily Berkeley, Town Clerk- Jocelyn Eagle, Sanitarian- Alexa DeGennaro and Tax Collector – Allison Hummel.

Students were treated to an overview discussion on the ins and outs of local town government by Town Clerk Pat O’Sullivan and even went on a special  tour of Town Hall after receiving a pin with the Orange town insignia from First Selectman Jim Zeoli.

Throughout the event students were able to learn about the responsibilities of various government officials in Orange.

This is an experience that many AMSO students have enjoyed throughout the years and one that they won’t forget.
