Check out this amazing project by two of our local Girl Scouts!!

The Community Cupboard is open!!

 

Silver Award Project

Local Girl Scout Troop #59068 Chloe Raboin (left) and Karsten Relation (right) worked to create a solution to a need they saw in their community. The girls had previously organized food drives and helped the local church to pack food boxes for distribution in the community. They knew firsthand that our community would benefit from a sustainable project like a Community Cupboard.

The girls developed a plan, created a timeline, planned fundraising efforts, asked the community and local businesses for donations. They then attended a Select Board meeting and presented their plan for approval.

The girls met multiple times over 8 months to complete this project. Their hard work and dedication to the community has resulted in this sustainable Community Cupboard. Located at the Town Hall in Orange. The girls would like anyone in need to “Take what they need, Give what they can”


 

The Town Office is fully open!!  Per Town of Orange Selectboard pursuant to the State of VT Governor’s order the office is now fully open.  Masks are not required and there are no restrictions.  Thank you for being patient with us.

Recreation Committee Update

Recently the Town of Orange Recreation Committee spent a morning cleaning, tidying up and repairing the grounds and buildings at the recreation field located on Reservoir Rd.  We had a good turn out of volunteers and the recreation field is spruced up and looks fabulous! Angela, Town Clerk and Emily Ruff, Selectboard Chair recently applied for a large grant for playground equipment, benches, signage and basketball hoops and we are anxiously awaiting the hear if we will receive this grant for the recreation field.  Please see the pictures below for a small snippet of what happened on that day.

The recreation committee also visited the town forest on May 26, 2021 along with CVRPC and the Town of Orange Planning Commission board for a walk through. Despite being rained on the walk was productive and got volunteers into the forest to assess the needs.

We are always looking for new volunteers.  If you too would like to volunteer the recreation committee, please stop by the office or call 479-2673 for more information.

The recreation field is available for your birthday party, family reunion or summer party. Please call Angela at 479-2673 for more details.

 


Volunteers Needed!!

Want to be involved with your town more? Well one good way to become involved is by volunteering.  The Town of Orange is looking for volunteers for several committees and you are just the person for one or more of them!

The Town of Orange is seeking volunteers for several committees that would play an important role in improving the Town’s infrastructure and providing opportunities for Town residents.  The committees would be developing plans for advancing conservation, energy, health and wellness, wastewater disposal, garden club and recreation.  Having those plans in place is advantageous or necessary when the Town applies for grants from State or federal agencies.  Priority is being placed on establishing a recreation committee as grants for outdoor recreation have been available in past years and are expected to continue.  If you are a Town of Orange resident and have an interest in volunteering please contact Angela, Town Clerk at 479-2673 during normal business hours.


Delinquent Taxes

If you have a delinquent tax payment that you would like to make please drop it in the drop box at the town clerk’s office or put it in the US Mail call 479-2673 for any questions.
