ORMS is selling recital hall seat plaques for $250 to help offset the very high costs of a playground for the new middle school. They are using a survey monkey form for seat orders, which personalizes your plaque. Please try to get your donation in by February 18th, 2022 as they will order the first round of plaques during February vacation week (Feb 21-25).
To donate by check: Make check payable to "ORMS" and mail to ORMS, 1 Coe Drive, Durham, NH 03824.
To donate online: Click the "Donate Now" button below. Your online donation will be made to ORAA (and is therefore tax deductible). ORAA will pass on all collected donations to ORMS as a grant.
