The final day of the Orange Volunteer Firemen’s Carnival was fairly decent with a steady flow of people and dry weather, except for one short drizzly spell early on.

The children’s raffle at 4 p.m. went very well with 8 happy winners and the big raffle drew a crowd, yet, it seems none of the 13 prize winners were present this year.

The totals haven’t been tallied yet but between the five firefighter sponsored games, food sales from the main food tent (pavilion) and the satellite tent, ticket sales from the 50/50 raffles and main raffle event, the fire department may have raised a decent amount of money.

Chairman Donnie Foyer thanks everyone for their support at the 85th annual OVFD carnival. This includes all of the civilian volunteers and the Carnival sponsors: UI/Southern CT Gas; Greco and Haines; Premier Subaru; Pez; Colony Hardware; Julia’s Bakery; Eagle Leasing; Center Auto Towing; Walgreen’s; Tamaro Oil; and Orangectlive.com
