I am glad to be a part of what was just a “Crazy Idea” since the beginning. Billy and Gabby Snyder started Orange Trade Days four years ago to try hand help revitalize the east end of Orange by starting a small monthly flea market in the old East Town Shopping Center.
I can remember while growing up, coming here with my mother to buy groceries.
Not only did I do stories about the plans for Orange Trade Days during its start, but also became one of the first vendors. I am there almost every month offering information about energy healing and an amazing technique called Quantum Touch. I have made many friends there. The vendors have become a family that looks after one another .
Orange Community Players, Inc. will be offering “Tuesdays with Morrie” beginning Thursday. The play spotlights Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.” It is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It is ultimately fatal over time.
It is the true story of the relationship of a former college professor and student that develops 16 years later, over the course of Morrie’s disease with their visits each Tuesday. But it is much more than that. It is a lesson in life and living; and what is truly important.
