On Friday, Nov. 17, the town of Orange hosted its Inauguration Ceremony for all newly elected officials.

Although some of them could not attend, a majority of these fine folks were in attendance to be sworn-in. State Rep. Themis Klarides administered the oath of office.

Now going into his seventh term as First Selectman, James Zeoli gave a nice speech, praising his fellow public servants and giving a nod to his former challenger Margaret Novicki for her hard work during the campaign.

Here is a VIDEO of that speech – For some reason, the 18-minute video cut off after 5 minutes… I will work on fixing that.

The Orange Highway Department hosted a tri-town auction on Friday, Nov. 17.

Unlike past years, when there have been several retired police cruisers, pick up trucks and SUVs, the auction featured just one cruiser this year, a 2011 Crown Victoria that went for about $1,200. A dump truck and plow truck also were available, along with several pieces of lawn equipment and, of all things, a dog cage.

Dozens of people from Bethany, Orange and Woodbridge gathered in the Highway Dept parking lot and vigorously bid on each item.

The final tally hasn’t yet been released, but, the auction was, once again a huge success.
