September is a special month as school begins, the Sheboygan County Fair leads us into Labor Day, and our Oostburg Community Education Foundation (OCEF) holds their annual golf outing at The Bull. To date, OCEF has given $211,880 in grants to schools in our community. Since 2005 OCEF has been providing our schools with resources which extend far beyond what would be possible through regular budgets. OCEF has been particularly supportive of our technology education department and our district literacy goals.
Time still remains to register a foursome for the Annual OCEF outing which will be held on September 12th in a scramble format. There is no need to worry about your level of golf ability as the foursome I play on with Mrs. Steenwyk, Mrs. Stengel and Mr. DeRoos will almost certainly lose 20 or more golf balls and score well over par – even in the scramble format (you may even see Mrs. Steenwyk throwing her golf ball if her clubs suffer from operator error again this year! For those who are unable to commit to golfing please consider supporting OCEF by participating in their raffle. This year’s raffle includes the following prizes:
Golf for two plus a cart at either Whistling Straits or Black Wolf Run with accessories
An oil painting of Aaron Rodgers with an original signature from Aaron and letter of authenticity
4 tickets to the Brewers/Cubs game on October 2 including 4 stadium club passes and a preferred parking ticket
A one night stay at Blue Harbor in either a King Whirlpool lake view suite or a Family lake view suite with four water park passes.
Raffle tickets are 1 for $5, 3 for $10, and 10 for $20. Tickets may be purchased in our HS office and can be designated toward a specific raffle prize. Please consider supporting the strong work of OCEF as they serve our students.
