Special Meeting to Discuss Dress the Band Fundraising

There will be an extra band booster meeting on February 16 at 7 pm in the OHS Library Conference Room to discuss fundraising efforts for the Dress the Band campaign. We just need to raise the money for 20 more uniforms or $10,000 so the band can continue to represent OHS in style!

need to raise this money by the end of February.  Please give to the
Pass this along on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media you
