A member of the Rising Sun Lodge (Brotherhood of Masons), Cliff also belongs to Malta's Sunrise Rotary Club (member and past president), Shiners Organization (32nd degree), and Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, among others. Lange is a member of Malta Ridge Methodist Church.
Lange presented his wife with a bouquet of long-stem roses at his retirement dinner to thank her for standing by his side.
"My wife was my partner in every sense of the word," said Lange. "When Jimmy was six months old, she took him with us door to door. He was our campaign baby, and now he's 24."
Lange said he plans to spend time on his boat, which he regularly sails on the Hudson River through the locks out to Lake Champlain. But first, he's heading down to Florida to brush up on his golf game.
As for his future in town leadership, Lange has no immediate plans but praised the work of town employees.
"I'm not closing the door on serving the town in the future, but I tell you this, the department heads do a great job," said Lange. "We're the luckiest town in Saratoga County to have the department leaders working for us. They won't ever let us down.""
