For the first time this year, the Rotary Club of Orange has sponsored a Little League softball team.
Rotary has always been committed to the health and well- being of the young people of Orange. In the classroom, Rotary participates in the “Dictionary Project” and “Reading Aloud Day”. Rotary also sponsors college scholarships every year which are available to any resident of Orange graduating from high school.
With its’ most recent initiative in the community, Rotary has sponsored a team of young women in the 8th grade, primarily from Orange, although two are from Bethany. At this point, they have won 6 games and lost three, and their most recent game against Milford was lots of fun. They came from behind, but once they got going, they didn’t stop! The game was called early because of the clear lead that the Orange Rotary team held over the visitors. Marc Robbins, the team coach said "I've been involved in watching and coaching these girls since they were 8 or 9 years old. It's been so much fun hanging out with them and seeing their enthusiasm for softball and each other."
Rotary is proud to sponsor such a fine group of young women.
