OWSAC Chair Message

During the 2018/2019 school year, OWSAC hosted five free/low-cost community building events, including a bingo night, a craft night, a paint night, a dance and our new joint event with Terry Fox Elementary School, Winterfest, that featured ice carving and outdoor activities.  We collected donations of new mitts for the Orleans community and supported the families of Orleans Wood through our Angel Tree.  Our fundraising activities included Laura Secord chocolate sales, Equinor coffee sales, Christmas wreaths, two movie nights, our Holiday Store and Summer Celebration.  We supported the school with technology investments, new library books, physical literacy aides, musical instruments, and multiple arts programs/performances.
