ORPH, Inc. is making it clear....they're not going anywhere.

But, after nearly ten years, and only $5,300 to show for it, the organization has agreed to go on hiatus, and regroup in September to continue their efforts to restore the Orpheum Theater in New Bedford's South End.

Richard Connor of New Bedford has attended several ORPH, Inc. meetings, and thinks it's time to reach out to areas outside of the city for support.

Frank Grace resigned as president of the organization, citing time constraints and other obligations. Grace tells WBSM News the group needs new blood from the community.

ORPH, Inc. will reconvene in September. In the meantime, they're looking for new members and new officers.
