Twenty-eleven may seem like next year to you, but to the members of the Service League of Orange, 2011 is just around the corner.
The organization is focused on “The Follies;” a musical and entertainment event held every three years to raise funds for the league’s community service projects. 

Incoming president, Ellen Ray, introduced event chairman Carole Nance and co-chair Cheryl Sargent at a “Lift Off” rally.
The Follies 2011 is scheduled for Feb. 18-19, 2011 in the Lutcher Theater, Orange.

The Service League of Orange was founded in 1954 as a volunteer organization dedicated to addressing community needs that are unfunded through other avenues, and to further the educational opportunities in the community. 

The league’s activities include the annual Toy Coffee; held to support the Salvation Army Christmas Program and operation of the gift shop in the lobby of Memorial Herman Baptist Orange Hospital. 

Members volunteer in local schools with activities designed to expand the learning experience and address the troublesome issues students face. 

The Service League impacts lives of newborns to seniors through their volunteer work with the local hospital,  annual grants to 501-C3 nonprofit organizations for assistance with special projects, weekly senior citizen activities, and scholarships for students attending Lamar University in Orange.
