Calendar of Events at the Historic Onancock School
Welcome to our website!
We hope that you will enjoy browsing through our site and will be an active contributor to making the site better serve you. Send us your ideas, pictures, and recommendations on what the site should offer to better capture a browser’s interest and we will see what we can do!
As I hope you will sense browsing through our website, the Friends of Onancock School is at a very pivotal point in our mission to rehabilitate the old school into a community & cultural center serving yet other generations of “students” here on the Eastern Shore. It is certainly a major challenge in these economic times to take on the rehabilitation of a 90 plus year old, 28,000 square foot building but we are confident that looming ahead is the best opportunity we can foresee to pull together the needed resources to make the rehabilitation of the school happen. As you read the “Update” section of the site, you will see that we are actively engaged in a state sponsored planning grant pursuit that will allow us to determine the economic sustainability of the facility – a key step to developing forward momentum. When you get down to the bottom line, it’s always the “Show Me The Money” response that makes things happen. It will certainly be no different in the challenge of saving Historic Onancock School. Rest assured that we are working on a financial strategy and you can be certain that we will need your support .. the Friends of Onancock School membership and most certainly from the school’s legion of alumni. Through periodic updates to our site, we will keep you up to date on where we are in the pursuit process and where we need your help to save these hallowed halls for future generations!
For now, browse and enjoy our new site! Again if there is anything we can do to improve the site or questions we can answer related to Historic Onancock School, please contact us. Thanks in advance for your support and Go Blue Devils!
