    The Power of One
    Most of us sit and watch helplessly frustrated as a seemingly daily parade of tragic events unfold across the globe. Others take some action motivated by the understanding that we all possess the Power of One. Orange High School student Paula Beckman understands that power as the president of the Orange High School Power of One Club.

    Beckman and her classmates are trying to raise $6,000 to build a library in Ethiopia. Between Monday May 26th and Sunday June 1st, the Orange Barnes and Noble store at 791 Main Street (across from the Main Place Mall) will be helping the Power of One faithful by donating proceeds from books purchased by those who present Power of One vouchers or mention the Power of One Ethiopia Library drive when they make a purchase. Your helping the Orange High School Power of One Club help students in Ethiopia actually empowers you, our students and the students in Ethiopia.
