    ORANGE MAYOR CAROLYN CAVECCHE TO SPEAK AT LUNCHEON

    The "His Men" of Covenant Presbyterian Church monthly luncheon on Thursday, May 8th will feature City of Orange Mayor Carolyn Cavecche. The program will begin at 11:30 AM in St. Andrew's Hall on the church campus, 1855 Orange-Olive Road in Orange. Members of the Greater Orange Community are invited to attend. Lunch will be served for $3 per person, with reservations in advance to the church office, 714-998-6650.

Mayor Cavecche first became active in Orange City government when she asked City Hall to pass an ordinance restricting the display of “matter harmful to minors” in local stores. This led to an appointment to the city’s Community Video Advisory Board. Carolyn continued to serve the families of Orange on library issues, serving seven years on the Orange Public Library Board of Trustees. She was initially elected to the Orange City Council in June 2001, was selected Mayor pro tem in 2003, and currently is actively serving as Mayor.

    No Amnesty for Orange’s Club Amnesty
    After the Orange County Weekly ran the story on the Swinger’s Lifestyle Sex Club located in an industrial area of Orange called Club Amnesty, and Metro TALK ecast the story link to the community, the City Of Orange closed the clandestine club because they allegedly falsified their Adult business application. The story made all the major Los Angeles media outlets, paper, television and radio.
