A Message from the Orange Historical Society:

Thank you to all our friends and neighbors who cleaned out their cupboards and closets.

With help from the Orange Juniorettes, the trailer in front of High Plains was filled with bags of gently used clothing and textiles and boxes of household goods last weekend. Cars drove up to the trailer and the girls quickly thanked the driver and helped unload the vehicle.

When the goods are weighed, the money earned will be used to help support the mission of the Historical Society to preserve and present our local Orange history.

Juniorettes2The Orange Juniorettes is hosting a fundraiser/Give Back Night at On The Border, 220 Indian River Road, Orange on Tuesday, Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The Juniorettes is a group of young girls who give back to the community in a number of ways. Recently, they did a beautification project at the Orange Police Department, planting seasonal flowers, decorative grasses and shrubs around the flag pole to the left of the main entrance.
The girls hope to raise $1,500 to go towards the needs of the Orange Police K9s, Loki and Trent.
For every flyer submitted between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. on Feb. 9, On The Border will donate 10% of food and beverage sales (both eat-in and take out).
Asst. Police Chief Anthony Cuozzo said the Juniorettes have given a lot of time and effort to the Police Department in the past couple of years by totally refurbishing the flag pole area and keeping it up with each passing season.
“The men and women of the department and visitors really appreciate the curb appeal that the Juniorettes have created and we look forward to the upcoming fundraiser, too,” he said.
The Orange K-9 program is unfunded except for the stipend the officers receive. The money would go toward any of a number of needs for the two dogs, a bite sleeve for Loki, new leads and training materials for Trent, perhaps a vest or two.
“Please share this with all your friends and family.  The more people we have attending this event means the more donation we will receive,” said Karen Iassogna, one of the Juniorettes’ advisors.
