Help Us Reach Our First Brick Goal by August 15, 2013!

Dear Marauders:

We are proud of you as an Ovid-Elsie Area Schools supporter and for your as your invaluable service and commitment to our students and community. With that in mind, we would like to invite you to be a part of the Ovid-Elsi...e Memorial Monument.

The memorial monument that has been designed is a legacy for anyone and everyone who has been a part of the Ovid, Elsie, and surrounding communities. That would be you. The memorial will also serve as a reminder as to when the Ovid and Elsie school districts merged and created “Ovid-Elsie Area Schools” in 1967.

Enclosed you will find a flyer describing the monument. It is our hope that you will purchase a brick to be inlaid at the football stadium in the monument in recognition of the time you spent at Ovid-Elsie. As you can see by the flyer, there are different sizes, symbols, and other options to choose to design the perfect legacy.

The slate at the stadium that we would like to replace has been divided into four sections. It is our hope that with your help we will be able to have the equivalent of 1,000 bricks donated by August 15, 2013 in an effort to renovate and inlay the first new section by the first Homecoming football game in October. Ordering information is at: http://oemonument.donationbricks.com/

If you do not have access to the internet, paper order forms are in the Administration Office. Please pick one up there or, if you’re living a ways away, please call and we’ll send one out to you.

Know that this project will be ongoing for many years. We encourage you to use this unique opportunity as a gift idea for past people who may have touched your life or you’d like remembered forever. This project is being used by individuals as well as businesses. We encourage you to “spread the word” about the project.

Thank you in advance for your contribution. Please call with any questions you may have.


Dana Blank, Strategic Planning Committee Brick Project Chairperson

Dr. Ryan L. Cunningham, Superintendent, Ovid-Elsie Area Schools

O-E Memorial Monument Fundraiser

Ovid-Elsie Area Schools is about to start a creative fundraising project that will also benefit our community and we want to encourage you to participate!

The O-E Memorial Monument will be replacing the old slat at the football stadium wit...h personally engraved giftbricks. It is designed to be a place to honor ANY person who has ANY tie to our community.

The first 1,000 giftbricks are going in the first section, which is to the left of the press box. If this section is where you'd like to place a brick, two, or seven... you may want to consider ordering in the next few weeks.

More information is available on the ordering website: http://oemonument.donationbricks.com/

Enjoy, and thank you in advance for your tax deductible donation to this project!
