We need your help! Actually, the select vocal ensemble from Orange High School needs your help. Voices in Harmony, under the direction of Mr. David C. Milnes, is seeking funds to get his ensemble up to Boston for the annual Heritage Festival. We have set up a PayPal donation button (below) that will assist in helping them raise needed funds. They have been fundraising all year with a mini-concert series, food sales, etc., but they are falling short by several thousand dollars. If you can give to this noble cause, it is tax-deductable and they will gladly accept ANY amount. Please, click the link below and offer your support. The students thank you in advance!
