The Orange Lions Club will host its biggest and most popular fundraiser “Get Uncorked!” A Wine Tasting Event on Friday, June 18, 2021. 

Sadly, COVID-19 forced the cancelation of last year’s wine tasting and the hope is that, with the continued vaccinations and falling infection numbers, by June it will be safe to congregate and join friends and neighbors in raising money for the Lions Charities.

The Wine Tasting will be facilitated by Ye Old Liquor Shoppe, 174 Main Street, West Haven. You will be able to sample fine wines, beers, and spirits.

Once again, the event will take place at St. Barbara’s Greek Church Hall, 480 Racebrook Road, Orange from 6:30-9:30 p.m.

Enjoy Hors d’oeuvres, Desserts and Raffles

Orange K9s Protected Thanks To Generosity Of Two Community Groups

On Tuesday, July 31, Orange K9s Loki (tracking and patrol) and Trent (drug sniffing) each received a piece of life-saving equipment thanks to generous donations from two great community groups — The Orange Lions Club and the Orange Juniorettes girls club.

The dogs were presented with brand new custom fit bullet-proof and stab resistant vests, constructed with the same material that their human partners’ vests are made of.

The Lions, represented by former president Nick Bencivengo, raise money through various events and give back to the community through grants and volunteerism.

The Juniorettes is a group of young ladies who perform community beautification projects and help the town in other ways. The girls hosted fundraisers, such as a dinner at Bertucci’s over the past year to raise money for a K-9 vest, which has a $1,000 price tag.

Loki’s handler, Officer Chris Brown and Trent’s partner, Officer Mary Bernegger measured their dogs’ necks, body length, girth, etc, so the vests could be tailor fit for each dog. They submitted the measurements to Assistant Chief Max Martins and the vests were ordered.

The vests arrived at the Orange Police Department this week, and the donors were invited to attend the presentation on Tuesday.

Bencivengo and the Juniorettes got a close up look at the vests they’d donated and seemed quite impressed with the quality of the items.

German Shepherd Loki looks very manly in his army green vest and Trent, a black Lab, looks quite sophisticated in his black vest.

Officer Bernegger thanked everyone for their hard work and the donations, saying she was happy that Trent now had the vest which could keep him safe.

Officer Brown said having the vest for Loki offers peace of mind while they’re working. “It’s nice to have it. If we don’t need it – perfect, but it’s nice to know it’s there in the car if he needs it for a situation,” he said. “It’s important to have, especially for a team like us doing criminal apprehensions. It’s good peace of mind because I wear one, and I feel that my partner should be able to wear one and luckily they were able to raise the funds to purchase them.”

Orange Lions Do it Again: Another Successful Easter Egg Hunt

 Around Town, Charity Events, Home, Latest News  Comments Off on Orange Lions Do it Again: Another Successful Easter Egg Hunt
Apr 102017
 

More than 200 children participated in the Orange Lions Club’s 55th annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Orange Fairgrounds April 8.

Prior to the hunt that began at 1 p.m. children were entertained with face painting and activities and of course visiting with the Easter Bunny.

The Lions seeded the field with 2,000 plastic eggs and countless foil wrapped chocolate eggs, miniature chocolates, m&ms and more. After each group completed their hunt, there was not a candy to be found.

Children who were lucky enough to find a foil egg marked with a sticker headed to the pavilion for a special prize.

Lions President Nick Bencivengo welcomed one young man in a wheelchair to participate, but he became overwhelmed by the crowd and couldn’t make himself enter the field. So two younger children, Amanda and Jacob kindly offered to collect some candy for him.

 

The Lions thank the parents for their good behavior and for following the rules this year.
