Photo: Flying the flags

  • The Orange Fire Department has received a donation from Witty’s Funeral Home and the Orange American Legion Building Association Post 172 in the amount of $1,000 each. This money is dedicated for use to repair, replace and maintain the American flags that you see flying on utility poles in downtown Orange. For the last 20 years, these two organizations have continued to support the patriotism of the downtown area. The flags are hung and taken down each year by Fire Department members who donate their time.
