Save Our School
The Friends of Onancock School need your help.
Through a wonderful donation from the Jamestown 2008 Committee, FOS was able to hire videographer Jenny Roberts of Yellow Bicycle Films
( who also made ‘Pieces of Tangier’) to produce a campaign video to use to Save Our School.
This video is a walk back in history to past days in the life of Onancock School with stories recounted up to the present. We are asking the community to go online or to the website to view our video and contribute to help us reach our goal. “ We have a list of immediate needs, such as repairs to the roof and HVAC system and installing handicap access to make us ADA compliant, among other repairs and upgrades.” says Donna Belote, President of Friends of Onancock Board of Directors. “We had a successful Premier of our video to Alumni, neighbors and friends on June 20th and we hope to continue the momentum and raise awareness, both in our community and on the Shore to enable us to keep the building safe, keep the doors open and continue forward with our mission. Historic Onancock School is an important asset on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and has so much to give to generations to come, with your help.” continues Pres.Belote.
