Orange Texas

The Kiwanis Club of Orange Texas recently joined forces with Spanky’s Bar and Grill to treat CASA teenagers to dinner and a movie.

The Padawans and their chaperones enjoyed boiled crawfish and hot gumbo at Spanky’s.  The group then “blasted off” to the movies for a viewing of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Orange County Vietnam War Memorial

More than 58,000 Americans died as a result of the Vietnam War, from the American exit in 1975 stretching back to its genesis decades earlier. Twenty-eight of those American troops identified as killed in the line of duty were from Orange County, Texas. And Vietnam veteran Jerry Gatch refuses to let them be forgotten.
