Cancer Fundraiser

Hello Oakman Families. I know it’s short notice but there is a fundraiser Sunday, November 7th to benefit one of our bus driver’s family. Jan Blicharski’s husband is seriously ill with cancer and it has hit the brain. The family is struggling financially.

A spaghetti dinner is planned at the Southgate VFW this coming Sunday. I know many of you cannot make it, but if you could make any donation to me in the office, I will give it to the family.

See Ms. Rose, secretary in the office.

Thank you
