Prom returns to OV, donations are welcome

Thanks to revised guidance about COVID-19 for large gatherings and creative flexibility by Otselic Valley, there will be an OV Prom on June 5, including an After-Prom event.  The “2020’s Roaring ‘Mask’querade" Junior-Senior Prom will take place at Raimo’s Ranch followed by After-Prom at the Bowling Barn, both in Cincinnatus.

Students in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade may attend; 9th graders may attend only if invited by upperclassmen. Crowning will unfortunately not be open to the community due to COVID-19 regulations restricting the number of guests.

Most importantly, masks will be worn during both Prom and After-Prom.

Prom organizers have their work cut out for them, beginning with costs.  A long pandemic prevented fundraising that would have supported Prom and After-Prom. Instead, donations by businesses, organizations, and individuals can help fill the fundraising short-fall needed to help pay for costs: the venues, prom decorations, crowns, refreshments, a DJ service for Prom, and prizes for the After-Prom celebration.

Unless donors prefer to remain anonymous, we look forward to publicly acknowledging your gift on OV’s social media and the website:

GOLD: $100 and higher
SILVER: $50-$99
BRONZE: any amount under $50

Donations can be dropped off in the Main Office any time school is open. Checks can be made out to the Otselic Valley Class of 2022 OR Otselic Valley SADD (if you want your funds to be used specifically for After-Prom). Please include your name, address, phone number, and any specific instructions. Mailing address:

Otselic Valley Central School

Thank you for helping us provide some normalcy for our Vikings. Their year hasn’t looked like anything they’ve imagined, but we’re grateful that official guidance about COVID protocols has developed enough to allow this adjusted return to making memories. Your contributions are greatly appreciated.
