Orange Community Women (OCW) invites you to see “Casey Carle’s BubbleMania” at High Plains Community Center, on Saturday, January 20 at 3 p.m. 

BubbleMania is a highly-acclaimed show combining the science of bubbles with theatrical showmanship and comedy.   Its website describes the show as an “extremely unique program combining high energy entertainment with artistic achievement.  

BubbleMania is loaded with visual comedy, quick wit, big band swing music and the untamed, often unbelievable qualities and beauty of spherical liquids: 20-foot bubble serpents; bubbles that bounce, dance and shimmy; jaw-dropping fog filled bubble sculptures; gravity-defying blobs of bubble foam; bubble spaceship; crystal ball; soap bubble ping-pong and more! This will be a wonderful community event and lots of fun for all ages.

This show is sponsored by the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation.

Tickets are $7 at the door – under 1 free.

Publicity Chairman Laura Griest said, “Orange Community Women is a chapter of Connecticut Junior Women, Inc.  We seek to unite the women of Orange and surrounding areas by participating in community service and providing enrichment, leadership and social interaction.  Our projects include awarding scholarships to Amity students, donating children’s books to the library, collecting for veterans, organizing activities for the Tracy Bunch (a group of special needs adults sponsored by Orange Community Services), visiting and working with the seniors at Silverbrook, donating holiday food baskets and gift cards to Orange Community Services and partnerships with Days for Girls, Manes and Motions Therapeutic Riding Center and Female Soldiers/Forgotten Heroes. Proceeds from this fundraiser support projects such as these.”

How’s This For A Practical, Unique, Affordable Item?

bg4p5If you have a dog, you know what it’s like to have to put Rabies tags and Licenses on his or her collar. Without the proper tools, it can be time-consuming and be aggravating to add or change them.

Many pet owners like to gift their dogs (and cats) with a new collar or a temporary festive collar, but what do you do with the tags?

There is a wonderful device that was created just for these types of situations. It’s called the Rubit Tag Holder. You can buy them online for $4.49 for a small one to $5.99 for a large one, then it’s a bit more for shipping and handling.

But Zoey Girl Pet Services, at 185 Boston Post Road, Orange in the Hitchcock Plaza, has them for just $5 and you don’t have to wait for delivery.

Gone are the heavy “S” Clips that require pliers to attach the tag, and also to put it on the collar. The Rubit has a round metal holder that is easy to open and slip the tags on. Then simply clip the spring loaded holder onto the collar for easy changes anytime.

If you are a pet owner or know one, this could be the best gift you ever received or gave. It is so easy and convenient that it will change the way you look at switching your dog’s collar forever.

Call Zoey Girl at 230-606-9220 for hours and rush in now and get a Rubit Tag Holder for any pet owner you know!

Chase Burzynski didn’t allow a single run as Orange Post 127 defeated Milford 1-0 at Old Tavern Park on Wednesday.

Burzynski allowed just one hit and struck out a Milford player to end the game.

Orange didn’t take the lead until later in the game. A sacrifice bunt by Kiwanis (#23) scored one run for Post 127.

One bright spot for Milford was a single in the fourth inning.

Burzynski earned the win for Orange. He tossed seven innings, giving up zero runs, one hit, and striking out ten. Milford’s pitcher threw six innings, giving up one run, three hits, and striking out four.

Jack Nolan, Andy Hague, and Jared Smith each managed one hit to lead Orange.

The Orange Arts and Cultural Council and Orange Community Services have partnered together to bring a Kindness Rock Garden to town.

Every Friday in May groups of people got together to paint rocks with inspirational sayings for the garden.

The creativity expanded to the community during last week’s Orange Expo, when visitors were invited to paint rocks for inclusion in the garden.

This Wednesday, June 21 at 1 p.m. the OACC and Community Services will host a ribbon cutting for the Kindness Rock Garden at High Plains Community Center near the front cafeteria doors.

All are welcome to attend.
