Hello all, I hope you had a Happy New Year and enjoyed your January! Winter is upon us full force so be sure to stay warm and dry. I would like to say thank you again to all who donated and contributed to our Food and Fuel Banks and to our Holiday Programs. These programs help Orange residents in need and are maintained solely by donation and the generosity of individuals, residents, businesses, organizations and schools.

A new year is a time to reflect and renew.  Wishing all of you a happy and healthy New Year! Stop by my office any time, the door is always open!
