    A Civil War Veteran Gets a Rededication

    Moses Hale, who's buried in the French Cemetery here in Orange, had his headstone rededicated in a ceremony adapted from a 1917 service for the use of the Grand Army of the Republic. A group of people from the Upper Valley came on the Fourth to watch a troop march, fire a salute and play taps.

    Missing Cat

    The Azzes' young indoor-only cat, Noah, decided to go exploring and snuck out of a window while they were away.

    He was last seen early this morning (Friday the 18th) running across the street from 25 Cardigan Mountain Road.

    He has long hair and a long, fluffy black tail.

    "He is a text-book scaredy cat and will run if approached," Jason says. "He even runs from us."

    If you happen to see him, please call them at 203-232-0805 (mobile).

    Should Orange Land Become a Park?

    Dorothy Heinrichs writes:

    The historical commission is meeting at Williams “Park” at 6 pm this evening to look at the possibility of making the town owned land actually useable as a park as part of the  Town’s 250th anniversary.  For those who don’t know where it is, drive past the Town House toward the State Park, it’s on the right between Tug Mountain and New Colony Roads.
