A time to celebrate
Many, many, many sincere thanks and appreciation to all who were engaged in the Orange County Emergency Operations Center, working diligently to keep Orange County residents safe and well during the COVID-19 pandemic. On June 30, after 530 days, we had a final briefing and celebratory luncheon at the Eno River Farmer's Market Pavilion.
Because of their dedication and concern, Orange County had low rates of incidences and deaths. Now, we are #1 in the state for vaccinations. Kudos to Orange County staff, State personnel and community volunteers. Key members received certificates of appreciation and challenge coins.
Just a reminder that any Democrat residing in District 1 who is interested in being appointed to replace outgoing commissioner Mark Dorosin on the Orange County Board of County Commissioners needs to complete the application by 5 p.m., July 19. Members of the BOCC plan to make the appointment at our Sept. 2 meeting.
