New ORMS Building Project

Help Support the Community Outreach Effort!

The $49,842,732 bond to construct new Oyster River Middle School building will be voted on in a district-wide election on March 10, 2020. 

The Oyster River Alumni Association is supporting community outreach efforts by raising funds for the creation of informational materials (brochures, yard signs, mailers) that will help voters in Durham, Lee and Madbury become aware of and better understand the new Middle School building project. The informational materials will be designed by the architecture firm hired by the school district, but printing costs are not covered. 

How to Donate:

  • Click on the yellow PayPal "Donate" button in the bottom section to support this important effort. Funds will be collected through ORAA and put directly toward material printing costs.

  • If you would prefer to donate by check, please make checks payable to "ORAA" and write "ORMS Building Outreach" in the subject line. Mail to: ORAA, P.O. Box 320, Durham, NH 03824. 

  • Donations to this effort via ORAA are tax-deductible as ORAA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. You will receive a receipt letter for your donation.
