CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION! OFS CELEBRATES 15th YEAR! The kick –off event for our 15th year took place on August 28th at Taylor’s Lane Farm and was graciously hosted by OFS Committee Clerk, Dr. Sandy Rea. The weather could not have been more perfect. A cool breeze was blowing across the Delaware River, and the aroma of hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill filled the air. The picnic was well attended by OFS families, school staff and committee members. There were games to play, lots of laughs and friendly conversation.
