The Orange Police Department and Connecticut Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics will host the annual Tip-A-Cop fundraiser at Chip’s Family Restaurant, 321 Boston Post Road, on Friday, Nov. 16 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Tip-A-Cop is a signature Torch Run event where officers trade their uniform for an apron and serve you! All money donated during this event will go directly to Special Olympics Connecticut to support their athletes and raise awareness about individuals with intellectual disabilities.
So bring your family for breakfast, brunch or lunch and tip your awesome server generously for a worthwhile cause.
Although it’s been nearly 3 months, his family is still holding out hope that he’ll be found alive and returned home for the holidays.

Elf Mama was a young lass when she began organizing the popular fundraiser for the Orange Volunteer Fire Department back in 1994. Now, she’s a bit older (1,027 in Elf Years) and wiser (she’s seen it all, and dealt with it) and she’s still just as spry and enthusiastic about getting the elves and firefighter helpers together for the big day.
Santa is practicing his “Ho, Ho, Ho” and the elves and helpers are getting the fire trucks ready to go! Don’t make alternate plans for that day because Santa gets very sad when families aren’t home when he and the firefighters arrive. The start time for Santa’s Helper delivery day is 3 p.m.
Elf Mama tells it like this — as many know, Santa’s Helper is a wonderful, exciting, fun and memorable fund-raising event with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting your Orange Volunteer Fire Department for the purchase of firefighting and rescue equipment.
“Each year, every one of our 6 Santa’s Helper Teams of Santa, Elves and firefighter helpers are excited to visit and deliver gifts, share in some fun, take photos and help make lasting memories and traditions for every family. Children and adults alike look forward with excited anticipation to seeing the fire trucks with lights and sirens coming down their street to their front door, with Santa leading the way! His truck full of gifts, his helpers and Elves coming in to visit with each family,” said Elf Mama.
WE WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE A CHANCE TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN, IT’S EASY!
Drop off the gifts on the designated drop-off day that you would like Santa and his team to deliver back to your loved ones, sign-up and we will take care of the rest.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE SIMPLE GUIDELINES BELOW:
GIFT DROP-OFF DAY IS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2018, 12:00 – 4:00 P.M. at Fire Station #2, 355 Boston Post Road (Across from TGI Fridays). We ask that the general public arrive no earlier than 30 minutes prior to start time. You will have a much shorter wait in line by following these guidelines.
GIFT RULES AND INFORMATION: There is a small fee of $19.00 per gift/per household. Each gift must be INDIVIDUALLY wrapped in your favorite holiday paper with an overwrap of plain brown paper. The name and delivery address of the recipient must be clearly printed on the outside of each gift. PLEASE try not to make the gift too large or too heavy, Santa appreciates that. We do have a limit of 170 delivery spots/visits available. We encourage you to try to have all the gifts for your visit with you on Gift Drop-Off day. (For families with a large party and many gifts, please e-mail Anne at email@example.com for special instructions. If there will be multiple families having their visit at one specific address, please let the Elf helpers know that upon sign-up on drop-off day.
Parking for Drop-Off day is in the rear of the Fire Station. Firefighters will be there to assist you. The Drop-Off Line is located INSIDE the Fire Station. Use the rear door marked ENTER.
ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2018, SANTA on his firetruck with his Elf and Firefighter helpers will arrive at your home to deliver the gifts to your loved ones and spend a few moments with your family and friends for photos and fun!
If you have any questions, e-mail Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org she will be happy to help you via e-mail. Please do not call the Fire Stations as it’s a Volunteer Fire Department and there will not be anyone there to assist you with Santa’s Helper information.
NOTE: *E-mailing Santa’s Helper does not guarantee you a spot on the delivery route. Sign-up is on Gift Drop-Off day and it is on a first come-first serve basis.
THE ORANGE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT FAMILY WISHES EVERYONE A SAFE, HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!
If you’ve never participated in Santa’s Helper, this is a great time to start a new tradition in your family, and you will be helping the all-volunteer fire department at the same time. Don’t miss out!

These educators have been selected by Guangdong Province, one of China’s most progressive provinces, to come to the United States this year. The trip for the delegation, which is visiting Connecticut November 4 through November 16, has been arranged by Daniel W.

The purpose of this visit will be to explore how schools in the United States provide innovative school types and
approaches to address student populations; develop management strategies to ensure teacher quality and student learning; employ innovative teaching methods to improve learning for all students, and promote effective teaching and learning by engaging in dialogue with American educators.
Their visit to Amity will focus on middle school programs in Connecticut. This will be the second year the Connecticut Association of Schools has hosted educators from Guangdong Province. The delegation will be visiting Amity Middle School in Bethany 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and Amity Middle School in Orange 10:45 a.m.
